Call For Storytellers To Take Part In Scheme For Aspiring TV Producers

News Image
Northern Ireland Screen and BBC Northern Ireland are looking for motivated, passionate storytellers to take part in a training scheme for aspiring TV producers.

No specific academic qualifications are needed but they want creative people who can bring fresh ideas to programme-making. Applications are now open and details of how to apply can be found on the Northern Ireland Screen website.

There are ten places available. If you gain a place on Aim High you will be given an 18 month contract (minimum wage) and have the opportunity to work on local, national and international television projects as well as short form digital projects for online platforms.

Applicants will initially be invited to complete an online assessment. From there, those shortlisted will be invited to attend an assessment centre where they will be evaluated in both team and individual tasks.

The best 15 candidates from the assessment centre will then go on to complete an intensive two week 'boot camp’ where they will be introduced to the craft of storytelling for local, national and international television production. At the end of these two weeks, the ten candidates showing the greatest potential will be placed on the Aim High scheme where they will undertake a series of placements in a variety of independent production companies and BBC Northern Ireland.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 21 December 2018.
