Freelancing as a Runner Bootcamp

12/07/2018 - 13/07/2018 (10:00-17:00)

Would you like to gain valuable support and advice about breaking into the TV industry? Want to learn what to expect as a freelancer and develop your career?

This highly practical two-day workshop will give you invaluable insight on breaking into the TV industry as a runner, making the right impression, understanding your career options, and the practicalities of managing your life as a freelancer.

The workshop will teach you how to cope and thrive with the uncertainty of freelancing, time management techniques, planning your career and your skills, managing work relationships in pressured situations, planning for meetings and retaining a work/ life balance, as well as crucial business skills. It will then move onto the practicalities of getting a start in TV – including an overview of key companies, what they make and how to contact them; career paths to consider within the industry, including working out what jobs are most likely to suit you and salary expectations; how to find work – including a CV clinic, guidance on covering letters, interview advice and building contacts and networking; who’s hiring, and more.

The workshop is taught by two hugely experienced broadcast professionals: David Thomas, a former senior BBC producer and Jude Winstanley, a senior line producer and production manager, founder of The Unit List, and champion of new entrants’ rights and opportunities.




Knowledge Bites is part of the Hertfordshire ProConnect programme which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. Workshops are delivered by Creative England and session facilitators sourced by DV Talent.
