Press Assistant (Deadline for applications – 27 May)

Channel 4 is looking for a bright, enthusiastic and engaged assistant to join their busy Press & Publicity team. Someone who loves TV, is social and digital media savvy, has top notch communication skills – both in person, on paper and online – someone who is organised and happy to get stuck in, and who is hungry to kick off their career as a TV publicist. You will get to work as part of Channel 4’s consumer press team on some of the most talked about shows on TV, offering administrative and creative support whilst learning the ropes.

Social Media Executive (Deadline – 20 May)

An organised and enthusiastic social media executive is needed to assist with the day-to-day running of All 4’s Facebook page. Reporting into a Social Media Manager, you should have experience working within a team to execute a Facebook focused strategy, with the desire to progress and develop your skillset – ideally within the entertainment space. Preferred skills include: account management, writing great copy, liaising with agencies/ stakeholders and working with social video (whether it be directing, planning or producing). Most important to this role is a familiarity with All 4’s extensive archive of shows and a strong editorial judgement.

Commissioning Editor (Deadline 26 May)

The five openings include Drama (Leeds), Factual (Leeds), Factual (Bristol), Popular Factual (Bristol), Popular Factual (Glasgow) and News & Current Affairs (Glasgow). As a commissioning editor, you will help develop and editorially manage the department's programmes and commission relevant shows. The roles involve working creatively with independent production companies and liaising internally with many departments.
