I am an experienced organised, mature and hard working researcher, I came to TV as a second career having come from a drama background. I re-trained at NFTS in Factual Development and Production after wining a scholarship from the Discovery Channel. I bring strong interpersonal skills and a willingness to learn and develop new skills in all my roles. I would be happy to re-locate to the West Country for the right position. I am just finishing a contract working in Events for BBC Studios on a series of three prime time documentaries and will available for work again from 9th August.

Prior to my current role I completed a development contract generating ideas for the Yesterday Channel for UKTV. My other work includes researching a specialist factual history series for Smithsonian and on the documentary strand Dispatches on Channel 4. Last year I consistently delivered stories on time working under challenging covid restrictions, casting interesting contributors, setting up shoots and worked with talent.

My other credits include documentaries for Channel 5, consumer series for channel 4 and BBC1 and popular factual for ITV. I work well independently as well as part of a team and can adapt to challenging environments.

I always bring a diverse cast and range of stories to any production I work on as well as regionality as I want to reflect the cultural diversity of the UK on screen to the best of my ability. Read Less

Amina worked for me producing and was fantastic, really helpful, punctual, courteous, hard working and confident, a real self-starter who could run with a contributor, think on her feet, direct and co ordinate, always thinking ahead and able to take the reins wherever and whenever necessary. Cannot recommend too highly. Excellent, and a lovely person too
