How productions ‘crew up’

Home > Business Areas > ITV Studios > ITV Studios in the UK > How productions ‘crew up’

In production we hire people on a range of assignments both long and short-term.

This Morning - Alison and Dermott

Our long-running shows, Coronation Street and Emmerdale, and our Daytime output run all year round and so hire many roles on a fixed term or permanent contract basis.

Most of our other business areas, however, are ‘project-based’, crewing up for productions as they are commissioned throughout the year. When we’re looking for teams in this way, we draw on a huge and vibrant community of freelance talent with proven skills/credits of a particular show or genre. We also add new talent by advertising for specific roles/programmes and are constantly refreshing our talent pools.

Our Promise

We’re committed to making sure our search for talent reaches people from all groups and backgrounds.  We proactively seek out and champion candidates from under-represented groups including those from lower-socio economic backgrounds, those from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and disabled people.

We will offer support and advice through our CV clinics, speculative interviews and networking events as well as guidance on development opportunities and career progression.

And through our collaboration with third party organisations we will strive to create a positive, supportive and inclusive environment for our freelance production community.

Our goal is to create a great place to work for all who join us.
