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, News Traineeship and Graduate level jobs.
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.
So within ITV I work for Day Break, I'm a senior producer on the features department and I oversee a department called 'The Guide', which are short films which run within the show twice a morning. And my role within that is, I kind of do everything from scripting to going out to film to coming back and actually edit the pieces together, so I kind of see it from start to finish.
So I did a journalism degree so I always knew media was where I wanted to work, but I always thought it was newspapers because I worked at local newspapers, local radio and I didn't really think much about television and then I did work experience as Grenada in Manchester and loved it and it was definitely somewhere then I knew I wanted to work so then I moved to London and started at GMTV and I've kind of just come from there really, I went from programme assistant to trainee to researcher to producer and now I'm a senior producer, so it's been brilliant, I've loved every minute of it.
I went from programme assistant to senior producer. I’ve loved every minute of it.
My role here at ITV is diversity manager and what that means is I look at both on-screen and off-screen diversity, so making sure the programmes that we work across are reflective of the audiences that are watching and engaging and entertaining. And also off-screen is to look at our workforce, so making sure, not only at entry point, we get the best talent and that we give that talent the opportunity to influence our business and it's inclusive in their journey here at ITV. Working here at ITV is great fun, it plays to my strengths and my skills-set, my day is very varied, I get to interact with a huge amount of people across our business, it's a great place to grow, it's innovative, it's challenging, it's rewarding, it's enthusiastic, it's brilliant, and to know you work for a huge broadcaster such as ITV, not only broadcasting, but programme making and you can sit at home and know that you have a part to play in that is amazing, it's great.
ITV’s a great place to grow, it’s innovative, it’s challenging, it’s rewarding.
What I do at ITV is I provide, as commercial research manager, support for our commercial sales effort here and that means providing research support and analysis for the sales teams here in order for them to put the best case possible for developing revenues for ITV. Working at ITV is great because we have a company that not only has commercial interests, if you like, in terms of advertising, but it's also got studio interests - it's a dynamic company today, very forward looking and it has, shall I say the spirit of enterprise and it's a lot of talented and interesting people here, and it's constant variety and challenges and every day is different.
There are a lot of talented and interesting people here.
