`Diversity is a key issue for us and we're keen to recruit from a range of communities.' Channel 4
Channel 4 is now looking for school, college or university leavers to take part in our Researcher scheme. The Researcher Training Programme is designed and delivered for us by The Research Centre and this year, we've increased the number of places on our 12-month training programme to sixteen, which means we can equip more people than ever to enter our industry.
Diversity is a key issue for us and we're keen to recruit from a range of communities. This is thanks to a major Channel 4 initiative that aims to increase the range of voices in the television industry, so that it reflects the diverse society it serves.
We want people who are ready to spend a year with a leading independent production company. This is an ideal opportunity to gain a unique modern view of the world and develop a thorough grounding in the basics of television production.
To be considered for this rare training opportunity, you must have broad-based general knowledge, good writing skills, a positive attitude and a strong desire to learn. It's also important that you have a clean driving licence, an understanding of diverse communities and the ability to communicate well. There's no guarantee of a position at the end of the programme, but you will have all the skills you need to become a fully-fledged researcher.
As ethnic minorities are under represented in television, we would particularly encourage applications from these communities. This is a training scheme under Sections 37 and 38 of the Race Relations Act 1976.
