The tasks will vary depending on the programmes but you will build your skills, confidence and CV to help advance your career in the media.


We are looking for creative people who are passionate and enthusiastic about entertainment and have a clear understanding of our content.

You don’t need loads of qualifications; in fact we are more interested in people with big imaginations, who can demonstrate a genuine interest in pursuing a career in the media.

So show us what you can do! You could be making your own content for YouTube, involved in local media projects, constantly coming up with ideas for shows or able to impress us with your television knowledge.
