Who are we looking for?
We are looking for people based in Scotland and able to work in Glasgow. People with a genuine passion for television who are determined to have a career in the industry. These trainee positions will provide you with the skills to take one of the main routes into television - production or editorial.
You may either want to work with the people who come up with ideas for programmes, find the people who are in them or help shape the programme (researchers) or you may bring your uber-organisational skills and your love of spreadsheets to help organise shoots and the logistics of getting people from A to B (co-ordinators).
Whichever role is right for you – you will have six months to learn how television works with some great training alongside.
