This is a remarkable opportunity to join the UK’s leading provider of award winning factual programming and learn about all aspects of the documentary television business.
TVF International is a dynamic company providing high quality factual programming to broadcasters around the globe. We identify the needs of international and UK broadcasters and acquire and co-produce programmes from programme makers to fulfill those needs. Our team is divided into three teams: the broadcaster team who sell into broadcasters across the globe; the programming team who acquire and co-produce programmes from producers; and the programme services team who manage our programmes, library and catalogue.
Based in central London and part of the TVF Media group (www.tvf.co.uk) we currently have two trainee posts. For less experienced applicants there are also opportunities to join the team as unpaid interns. The training scheme is focussed and structured with formal points of assessment. It is based on the assumption that successful candidates will after a three month training period become permanent members of the broadcaster team handling and closing deals with television and online channels across the globe.
All candidates should have an excellent educational background and be able to demonstrate a passion for documentary programming and new forms of communication. Fluency in more than one language and some sales experience is an advantage but not essential. The successful candidates will also be able to show the charisma, charm and force of personality to enthuse broadcasters with programming and close deals, and the editorial understanding to make appropriate programme judgments.
