ScreenSkills has named its 19 ‘leaders of tomorrow’ – its selection of mid-level crew who will be offered a three-year tailored programme to prepare them for senior roles in the industry.

Funded primarily through high-end productions’ payments into the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund, the programme has a drive to improve diversity among leadership roles. More than half of the cohort are BAME, three-quarters are female and two in five are based outside London.

The candidates were picked from more than 100 submissions from senior industry figures. Each will be assigned a mentor or champion, up to three part-funded placements per year, skills-specific, leadership and management training, masterclasses, networking opportunities and tailored individual support and advice from the High-end TV Professional Pool.

The BBC has funded two of the places, with Netflix and Sky Studios each funding one.

  • Ola Kaminska-Omozik, Accounts, Northern Ireland
  • David Crewdson, Art dept, South West
  • Hannah Lewis, Assistant director, London
  • Heather Crompton, Camera, Yorkshire
