Content Creatives

Channel 4 Content Creatives is a 14 week paid training and placement opportunity aimed at young people in Leeds and Manchester, offering the chance to kickstart a career in creative digital media. 

Content Creatives

*Applications for Content Creatives are currently closed. Please follow us on our social media channels to hear about future updates.

The Content Creatives scheme is open to 18-24 year olds currently living in Leeds or Manchester. 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 or Manchester.

During the first six weeks of the scheme 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, Channel 4’s Leeds-based digital content production unit, Channel 4 is partnering with creative organisations in Leeds and Manchester to offer a range of exciting placements to successful candidates.
