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.
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 are now OPEN for applications! We 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 you're ready, you can submit your application online here. Closing date is 29th June 2014... don't miss out!
