When it comes to working in the TV and video business, it can feel like one of the hardest to break into. There’s no doubt that the industry is exploding with opportunities but how do you take advantage of them? 

It goes without saying that you need to first learn the skills to shoot, to edit and to tell stories in video and that you need to practice those skills so what you produce is professional and something a client would be willing to pay for. 

Job hunting can be a real challenge. There are plenty of jobs out there but they tend to be spread around a lot of different websites and it can be hard to find the best ones.

So whether you’re looking for a job as an editor in London or a video content creator for Netflix you’ll find them here.
