RTS Midlands TV Career Fair – Monday 12 October to Thursday 15 October 2020 sponsored by NFTS

In the most ambitious Careers Fair yet, the RTS four day event from Monday 12 October to Thursday 15 October will bring together people from across the world of TV for SIX hours of live-streamed sessions, masterclasses and workshops each day.

Alongside Q&A panel sessions with the people who work on the biggest shows and brands, there will be some incredible practical workshops and masterclasses including help with your CV, an animation workshop, sessions on digital effects, working on location, podcasting, TV News and post production.

People confirmed to do sessions include: Barbara Slater, OBE, Director BBC Sport; Fiona Campbell, Controller, BBC Three; Isa Guha (BBC cricket presenter and commentator); Chris Stark (The Peter Crouch Podcast); Poppy Jay and Rubina Pabani (Brown Girls Do It Too podcast); Jacqui Oatley (sports broadcaster/journalist/presenter); Mark Cole, MD, Whisper TV;  Martin Dougan (Newsround) and Louis Cryer (Comedy Central).

In a first, we will also visit the set of BBC One’s award-winning Doctors in Birmingham to see how and where they film this brilliant drama. We’ll find out who does what, how they do it and more and do a Q&A with cast and crew live from the drama village.

This event is unmissable if you have ever thought about working in TV.
