Channel 4 Content Creatives is a paid training and placement opportunity in West Yorkshire and Manchester, offering the chance to kickstart a career in creative digital media.
The Content Creatives scheme is open to anyone aged over the age of 18 currently living in West Yorkshire or Manchester, or able to commute.
We are particularly keen to offer opportunities to people from lower socio-economic backgrounds. Applicants do not need to have any previous experience or a degree in media or digital. We just want to hear from people who have a passion for digital content and want to see how they can turn this into a career.
