Why ScreenSkills Trainee Finder could be the programme for you
Recruitment for ScreenSkills’ 2023 Trainee Finder programme opens on Monday, 24 October 2022 and we are hosting a Q&A that day to explain what it is, how it works and whether it could be for you.
Trainee Finder is ScreenSkills’ industry-respected entry-level programme which places trainees with less than a year’s industry experience on paid placements with films and children’s and high-end TV (HETV) series.
This hour-long webinar will give you all the information that you need about how Trainee Finder supports trainees and what makes a great candidate.
Access requirements: If there is anything we can do to accommodate your attendance please email Jess as soon as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org
This event will be interpreted into British Sign Language (BSL) and live Zoom captioning will be available.
A recording of this event will be made available on the Screenskills website following the live event.
