Trainee placement at BBC North Drama – but hurry!

From Helen McCarron, UoL Careers & Employability Advisor :

I know this is a tight turn around but there is a very exciting opportunity which has arisen with BBC DRAMA PRODUCTION NORTH on the 3 x 60 minute BBC THREE drama IN THE FLESH, a family drama looking at identity and discrimination but with a surprising genre twist. Deadline is Tuesday 2nd October at noon.

This is a fantastic chance to work out on location and oversee all aspects of a BBC drama production. The successful trainee will be based on set and main duties will include working alongside the assistant directors. There is also the potential opportunity to spend time with other departments according to your particular interest. You will be expected to work long days and the hours will be irregular. You need to be able to drive and have your own transport as shooting will be taking place all over the North West.

This is a 4 week PAID placement that will take place from Mon 15th Oct – Friday 9th Nov. Shortlisted applicants will need to be available Friday 5th October for interview.

To apply please send me your CV, and a covering letter of no more than a page that outlines what you could bring to this production and why you think you’re a good fit.
