Trainee Finder is recruiting its 2018-19 intake of trainees in the following departments and grades: Art Department, Camera, Costume, Edit, Floor Runner, Hair and Make-Up, Locations, Sound, Video Assist and Production Office Runners who are committed to building a career in Film.

Creative Skillset's Trainee Finder has helped place trainees on UK produced feature films including Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Wonder Woman, Jurassic World, God's Own Country, Breathe and Lady Macbeth.

In the Film Trainee Finder scheme, trainees become part of an industry recognised group, receiving exclusive access to training placements on some of the most exciting Films being shot in the UK. Whilst on production, you trainees get the opportunity to be supported by a supervisor within your department, to learn and develop their craft through on the job training, and gain important contacts to help you find future work.

You learn so much by being on set, working alongside industry professionals. It felt like I was part of the crew. This first hand experience has been invaluable to my development.”  Sound Trainee on Wonder Woman
