Film London, the body which promotes the capital to film and television makers, is looking for up to 10 companies to participate in the third round of the Company Placement Scheme which aims to support, assist and improve recruitment and mentoring across the sector and target newcomers to the industry.
The scheme aims to attract applicants from backgrounds that reflect the diversity of London’s population, and is particularly keen to support companies who want to recruit candidates from communities currently under represented in the film and media industries.
Film London is hoping to attract companies involved in Animation, Sales, Exhibition and Distribution.
The selected companies will receive support to provide paid work placements for London-based new starters in the film and TV industries.
This includes up to 75% of the total gross costs of the work placement for up to six months, a professional HR consultant mentor who supports the mentors as well as further recruitment advice and support.
Adrian Wootton, CEO of Film London said: “Building on the success of last year’s programme, we are delighted that even more businesses and individuals will have the opportunity to participate in the 2007 Company Placement Scheme, helping to ensure that London’s workforce remains at the forefront of the industry.”
