In-house Runners Programme

The High-end TV In-House Runners Programme provides up to six-months of paid work placement experience for runners within a high-end TV production company. The scheme helps production companies give opportunities to enter the industry to young people from a wide range of backgrounds in the nations and regions. The High-End TV Levy Fund will support 50% of salary plus a contribution towards accommodation costs for individuals who would otherwise struggle to break into the industry.

High-end TV levy-paying production companies who would like to take advantage of this programme should contact Michelle James.

Who is it for?

The scheme is aimed at production companies willing to give enthusiastic team players, who are passionate about working in TV drama, the opportunity to take their first steps in the industry. It allows production companies to employ someone who would not otherwise have had a similar opportunity due to their circumstances. 

When will the placement take place?

These full-time work placements will take place in 2018/19 for up to six months within one company. 

Where will the placement take place?

The placement will be in-house at a high-end TV production company. This will probably be London based. We offer an accommodation allowance to enable regional candidates to participate.
