Creative Skillset and Creative Diversity Network (CDN) North are proud to announce the launch of Northern Lights, a ground-breaking diversity initiative aimed at programme makers based in the North of England. The scheme aims to improve the diversity of the creative industries at a senior level, creating opportunities for talented individuals working in the TV industry, who have the potential to be future leaders. Northern Lights alumni are going to be industry names for the future.
The 6-month scheme aims to identify key industry talent and fast track them to the next level in their careers. So if you think you have got what it takes, or you know someone who has the raw talent to be the next big thing – Northern Lights is the scheme for you.
The 8 successful candidates will attend an immersive training programme designed and delivered by training consultancy, thinkBIGGER! Over the six months they will attend monthly training sessions and be taught by thinkBIGGER!’s network of specialist trainers and senior industry talent. In addition there will be regular networking events and Industry mentoring support for the candidates. They will be inspired, challenged and encouraged in equal measure – and given the skills, confidence and contacts to move up in their careers and establish themselves as senior talent.
Applicants should be working in the North of England and at AP/Producer level or similar – and can be working across a range of genres including Factual, Fact Ent, Drama and TV Journalism. They should have at least 3 years’ worth of industry experience as a minimum. We are committed to Equal Opportunities and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
The deadline for applications has now past, details of similar events will be able on the News Section
