High-end TV Trainee Finder

Since its launch, Creative Skillset's Trainee Finder has helped place trainees on numerous high-end TV drama productions across the UK including Peaky Blinders, Poldark, Game of Thrones, Outlander, and Call The Midwife. Recently broadcast productions where we have had trainee placements include Kiri, McMafia, Hard Sun, Next of Kin, The Miniaturist, BancroftDr Foster and Grandpa's Great Escape.

In HETV Trainee Finder, trainees become part of an industry recognised group of trainees, receiving exclusive access to training placements on some of the most exciting high-end TV dramas being shot in the UK. Whilst on production, they are supported by a supervisor within the department, learn and develop their craft through on the job training, and gain important contacts to help find future work.

In 2018 we recruited trainees in art, camera, costume, edit, floor runner, hair and make-up, locations and production office runners, who are committed to building a career in high-end TV drama. Our 2018 cohort have had their induction and are starting on placements. 

“Since finishing as an assistant editor on Trainee Finder, I’ve worked on Broadchurch, Humans and Death in Paradise. It’s been amazing and I’ve learnt so much and being on Trainee Finder made me realise that editing is the only thing I want to do. I’d urge anyone thinking about applying to be a trainee to take the leap.”                                                                                            Naomi Smallwood, Trainee Finder alumnus
