In 2017 we will be inviting 60 more amazing people, who are on a mission to get into TV, to spend a week with us at Channel 4. This is your opportunity to understand more about the insides of the Channel and gain hands on experience working with one of our teams. This is open to absolutely anyone who wants to break into the industry – you do not need to have attended a 4Talent event previously.

What will I be doing?

Day 1: Induction with 4Talent and your Channel 4 office survival guide

Day 2, 3 & 4: Experience three days of life at Channel 4 within one of the essential departments that keep the Channel on air, as well as working on your own brief set by the department you are working in (to add to your CV / portfolio)

Day 5: Share your new knowledge, experience and ideas with the rest of the work experience crew, and meet people from the other side of the table to find out what they want to hear on your application and in interviews.
