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.
At ITV, we’re 100 per cent behind giving young people the opportunity to earn while they learn. So modern apprenticeships are right up our street. We’ve already had a number of people successfully complete our Apprenticeship programme, and many of them have gone on to secure great roles within our business.
We support apprenticeships in Creative & Digital Media and Business & Administration.
Our schemes are 12 months long and have lots to offer, starting with a training allowance. We also make sure our apprentices get all the support and guidance they need to take their career to the next stage. And that’s all on top of gaining a nationally-recognised qualification.
If you’re interested in learning more about a modern apprenticeship, then register with the National Apprenticeship Service and keep a look-out for announcements on our official Twitter feed, @ITVCareers and here on our careers site for when applications open.
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.
