The Unusual Suspects
To mark National Apprenticeship Week, Channel 4 joined forces with BBC and ITV to host an evening of discussion and networking with industry talent managers, apprentices, and trainees – past and present.
The aim of the evening was to discuss “How to get into TV” and to shatter some preconceptions about what makes great TV talent. We discussed the different kind of roles in the industry; including behind the scenes roles that keep the ball rolling in most companies: Sales, Commissioning, Online and Marketing to name a few. Most importantly, we discussed how your individuality and talent can be your strongest selling point! The panel discussions were followed by a short networking session where everyone was able to mingle with the recruitment teams from the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, plus there were all manner of apprentices and trainees who were grilled by our audience, whilst they got the full lowdown from them!
