A new type of media company, Gritty Talent was founded by 2 ex-BBC production staff. If you’d like to add your voice to the UK television industry, get in touch with Gritty Talent who are looking to connect new voices with factual TV programme makers.
Sophie Wells, Talent Assistant Producer for Gritty Talent says,
“The UK television industry (like many industries) is actively trying to diversify its on and off-screen voices, to become more inclusive and representative of the whole of the UK, and to portray the UK’s diverse groups and communities more accurately and authentically.
However, with budgets being squeezed and Covid regulations impacting on the sector, we’ve found that production teams rarely have the time to dedicate to finding and nurturing the next generation of presenters, commentators and contributors.
So, we are currently doing the groundwork of looking for new communicators to be featured on a new app launching this spring, which will serve as a resource to connect new voices with factual TV programme makers. We’ll also be offering some free online media training to prepare those who are interested for prospective opportunities.
We are looking for a broad mix of people; from academics for interviews and documentaries, to budding reporters, or potential expert presenters. We are particularly looking for those whose voices are currently underrepresented in the media or in their particular field.”
This looks like an exciting opportunity to be a part of a new type of media company which puts diversity and inclusivity high on their agenda. Check out the flyer below and contact Gritty Talent for more information. You will find links to their website and contact details beneath this post.
