Useful Links

A few  links to the jobs pages of some of the UK’s major broadcasters and producers  – just to get you started!

Make sure you read their web site first before applying to ensure you know something about their business and their programmes. No point sending your CV to a company that only makes drama if you only want to make documentaries. To be honest, simply uploading your CV onto a database is unlikely to bring significant results. It’s easy to get lost in the pile, so don’t rely on that. Find a name, someone in Human Resources or a Production Manager or Producer, acquire their email address (if it’s not on-line you could try calling the switchboard of the relevant company and asking them) and send them a personal email outlining your skills and interests.time.

If you have any useful links to share, please let me know. This list is by no means comprehensive.
