ITV Studios Entertainment is a production label within our Studios Group with teams in both London and Manchester and are known for producing award winning shows. Our label is also home to some hugely successful daytime programmes – The Jeremy Kyle Show, Judge Rinder and factual shows including Kyle Files and Judge Rinder’s Crime Stories, based in Media City (Salford/Manchester).
As the success of Judge Rinder continues to grow we are building our talent pool of Researchers for upcoming roles starting in July and throughout the year these are predominantly for Judge Rinder but we will also consider you for our other Entertainment shows should a role arise. You will need an understanding of the structure of this type of show and the ability to demonstrate and cast the types of stories and contributors that make a strong programme.
For our researcher roles, you will have ability to cast high volumes of contributors relevant to the show, ideally with some experience as a casting researcher on a similar type of show, however this is not essential. Our teams work to targets to meet tight deadlines. To this end, you will have a persuasive telephone manner along with strong negotiation and communication skills. We’re looking for confident individuals so sales experience/call centre experience if no TV experience – would be advantageous.
Working in a large team supporting editorial leaders of the show you will have exceptional organisational skills including excellent attention to detail, good administrative and problem solving skills, the ability to use your own initiative, computer literacy as well as working within a close team environment. Some training will be provided.
Successful candidates will be invited to attend an assessment centre that will be held on Thursday 29th June 2017 and successful applicants will then be invited in for any short term and fixed term contracts that become available mostly starting towards the end of July but additional roles throughout the year. These contracts are usually 6 month fixed term contracts, we will also operate a talent pool for shorter contracts and other shows too.
Our people are our greatest asset and, as an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds to work both in front of and behind the cameras.
“ITV, where creativity, diversity and collaboration put us right at the heart of popular culture.”
Please note this is 6 Month Fixed Term Contract
To be a part of the Assessment Centre, please submit your application by 26th May 2017
