Trainee Finder

Trainee Finder is a service that matches trainees with companies across the UK's film, children's TV and high-end TV industries. Trainee Finder opens the door for new entrants to learn in the workplace from industry professionals whilst receiving a subsidised expenses allowance.

Trainee Finder is supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Investment Fund and High-end TV Levy Fund which encourage co-investment in skills and training to ensure a continued supply of a new generation of talent, capable of world-class creative content.

How does Trainee Finder work?

Trainee Finder gives productions quick and easy access to a diverse pool of the UK’s top new talent for their projects. Trainee expenses and costs are part subsidised from the appropriate fund. 

How will Trainee Finder benefit my production?

Trainee Finder makes it more affordable to bring fresh talent to your projects through longer, more meaningful placements, giving you time to develop their skills unique to your requirements. Once trainees are ready for a paid job, it helps reduce the risk of bringing on someone new and strengthens your company’s competitive edge.
