Tommy Cairns, Job Match Employment Engagement Officer, engaged with the BBC at the end of 2019 to discuss potential recruitment opportunities for Job Match participants. Lockdown happened and Tommy and the BBC got creative.

Working in partnership, Tommy and BBC Senior Recruitment Advisors, have developed an online session ‘Get into Media’ which has attracted 18 participants. The session will offer general information and advice on the skills needed to get into the media industry. Topics will include production and editing, recruitment and technology.

The aim of the session, due to take place this week, is to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills they need when applying for posts in Media, Journalism & Technology. It will also be a great opportunity to ask questions on potential careers in the media and the recruitment process.

This session is fully booked. If this first session is a success we may run further sessions.
