At ITV, we’re always on the look-out for new talent. And we’re 100 per cent behind providing opportunities to earn-while-you-learn. So apprenticeships are right up our street. We’ve already had a number of people successfully complete our award-winning scheme, and many have gone on to secure great roles within our business.
What can you expect?
Our schemes are 12 months long and have lots to offer, including:
• A competitive apprenticeship salary • An NVQ in Business & Administration or Creative & Digital Media • A year of valuable hands-on experience working alongside industry experts • Guidance and career support every step of the way.
Who can apply?
ITV Apprenticeships are a great way to continue your education but within a workplace environment, perfect for school or college leavers. You might not have loads of working experience, or none at all. We’re looking for fresh new talent from all walks of life who can flourish with us here at ITV.
You can apply if you:
• DO NOT have a degree, a level 4 qualification or have already completed a similar apprenticeship • Have lived in the European Economic Area for 3 years consecutively • Are genuinely interested in learning about what we do and the role you’re applying for.
If you fit the above criteria you can apply – but do remember, the nature of the apprenticeship, the salary and the level of qualification would be most suited to school/college leavers. Here at ITV we have several entry schemes to suit different ages and stages, such as the ITV Insight Programme.
How can I get on board?
We open for applications each June for a September start date. We'll have loads of information on our ITV Careers Facebook page to help you choose the best role for you. Keep a look out on our official Twitter feed @ITVCareers to hear from current apprentices and our recruitment team to help you through your application when the time comes.
We're proud to be a ‘two-tick’ disability symbol holder, meaning we’re recognised for our support and retention of talented individuals with disabilities. This support, naturally, extends to anyone on our Apprenticeship programmes and we’ll do everything we can to make sure you have the support and adjustments you need to get the most out of your time with us.
My role at ITV is director of operations for legal and regulatory compliance. When we talk about compliance here at ITV we mean compliance for all laws, all regulations, but also codes of practices such as the code of practice of Ofcom or other regulators like PhonepayPlus or the Gambling Commission, so it's quite wide. So I look after the operational side of it which means I look at all the processed, also the systems we use to make sure we deliver compliance programmes.
My career path has been, first I came to this country about 16 years ago, I basically trained as a solicitor in the City at Freshfields, I spent quite a few years there, then I went to New York and did a course on the business of entertainment and when I came back I got the job of head of legal in a small production company and then after doing that I was head-hunted by ITV and I joined ITV about 6 years ago and I've been working here since then.

I'm a finance analyst at ITV, I work within broadcast, specifically within commercial sales, which is the area responsible for basically selling advertising that you watch on TV. I help support the business by providing them with financial information on their budgets, I give them information on specific advertising should they need it and basically just help them with any finance related queries that they have as well. I'm only one part of finance in the sense that there's other finance teams dotted across ITV, so there's the finance team with in studios and there's a finance team based in Manchester as well who do all the accounts payable and account receivable function. Prior to joining ITV I didn't have any media experience, I trained at a large accountancy firm for 4 years where I did my accounting qualification and I practiced in auditing so I went out and audited different companies and then I wanted to get some experience within a business and sort of applied for different companies and thought ITV would give me the best all round experience of just being within a company.

I'm a production executive at ITV, I work in the non-scripted department for ITV studios. I work with the entertainment development team which means that I budget their ideas once there's a spark of interest from somewhere I work with them to get together all of the figures, which is quite interesting because it's working on programmes that absolutely haven't been seen before, so I get first look at what we're up to which is great. I also work with the global entertainment formats consultant, assist her in getting the formats information out to the various companies that decide to make our formats, not just our own production companies but our formats get sold all over the world. We've also just sent somebody out to China a couple of times because there's a Chinese version of 'Surprise Surprise' which is in production at the moment. I came in on a three month contract and I've just enjoyed the people that I've worked with - it is the people that make the difference here.
