About the apprenticeship
Production placements will be based in north Wales and apprentices will be expected to travel to sets and filming locations based all over north Wales.
The CRIW Apprenticeship scheme is a brilliant way to come into the industry since it shows people how the sector really works, as the apprentices will be moving from production to production, dependent on shooting schedules.
The role offers opportunities to gain essential experience of the process of producing content and offers wide-ranging networking opportunities that are valuable within the Media sector.
The crew on a film or TV production is made up of a variety of different departments and can be entirely staffed by freelancers who move from production to production. As a CRIW Apprentice, you'll be working alongside freelancers and could be in any department, particularly:
Running within Production Department
Productions and locations will be over the north Wales area, it is crucial that apprentices are able to get to those locations at all times of the day. Some locations will be remote and you may also need to travel in between locations during the day.
There may also be opportunities in other departments depending on production requirements. Either way, you'll also be making tea/coffee, talking on the phone/radio and will most likely spend most of the day on your feet. You might find yourself working for a number of weeks on one production, and then just a few days on another - just like a freelancer.
• A Self-Starter
• Good at taking direction
The role may involve working long and unsociable hours. You don't need prior experience of working in production, but you definitely need to be motivated, enthusiastic and hard working. MENTAL AND PHYSICAL STAMINA alongside SELF DISCIPLINE are a must.
