Content Creatives

Applications are now closed for the Channel 4 Content Creatives scheme, a 14 week paid training and placement opportunity aimed at young people across Yorkshire, offering the chance to kickstart a career in creative digital media. 

Content Creatives

The Content Creatives scheme is open to 18-24 year olds currently living in Yorkshire. We are particularly keen to offer opportunities to young 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.

How it works

If you are successful, you will receive six weeks of bespoke training with SharpFutures followed by an eight-week work placement to put these skills into practice at a creative digital organisation in Leeds.

During the first six weeks of the scheme, which starts in May, you will experience all aspects of creating and delivering digital content. You’ll undertake a range of courses covering skills such as production techniques, digital storytelling, ideas generation and pitching skills, alongside soft skills such as communication and teamwork.

After this training, you will then complete an eight week placement to put these skills into practice. As well as offering placements with 4Studio, C4’s Leeds-based digital content production unit, Channel 4 have partnered with the creative and gaming companies Born UglyCreativeRaceDubitMcCann Leeds and Social who can offer a range of exciting placements to successful candidates.
