Channel 4 launches Rio Production Training Scheme

The Channel 4 Rio Production Training Scheme will give 24 disabled applicants the opportunity to train as production staff to the level required to work on the Rio Paralympic Games in 2016, and beyond that to build a career in sport production.

The scheme is open to entry level and junior talent to join the industry and learn the skills necessary in three possible roles: Junior Researcher/Assistant Producer (broadcast or digital); Junior Production Secretary/Coordinator; Technical/Production assistant.

They are looking for people who have a passion for sport and are keen to share this with others. These are paid-for placements that last for up to 12 months and there’s opportunities nationwide.
