ScreenSkills in partnership with Share My Telly Job are running a first of its kind job-sharing programme, offering placement for job-share pairs in craft and tech roles in HETV. These include roles in the following departments: art department, hair and make up, costume and wardrobe, sound and camera.
We will be pairing up to three job-share pairs and partnering them with upcoming HETV productions and the programme will include training, coaching and ongoing support.
This programme is supported by the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund with contributions from UK high-end TV productions.
The programme will start in September where we will run a job-share 'speed dating' event to pair people up and subsequently run training and coaching sessions for both the job-share pairs themselves and the companies employing them.
The dates and length of the placements themselves cannot be confirmed until they are secured, however they are likely to run between October and March. Because the contract is dictated by the roles of the successful applicants, show scheduling will play a part in the start dates. Once the programme begins, our aim is that you will be employed for a continuous period of up to four months.
