Work Experience

If it’s your dream to work in TV, this is your chance to experience it for real. We have 20 places available to anyone aged over 18 who can show us they have a real passion for our industry. Hands-on experience and the opportunity to gain an insight into how we work await those who are successful.

Here’s how it works:

Day 1

Day one kicks off with an induction with 4Talent and useful office survival guide.

Day 2-4

Days two, three and four will give you the inside track on what it’s like to work for one of the many departments that keep us up and running. You’ll also get to work on your very own brief so you’ll have something meaningful to flesh out your CV.

Day 5

Day five you’ll share what you’ve learned with the rest of the work experience crew. The people who sit in the interviewer’s chair will share with you what they’d like to hear from you – whether it’s on your application form or during an interview. You will then wrap up any last minute work with your departments and say your thanks and goodbyes! 

In 2018 4Talent offered Work Experience placements in both London and Manchester.

In January 2018 we kicked off with a Work Experience Day at our Manchester Office! Our Manchester office is home to part of our award-winning Sales team ‘4Sales’ and we invited 20 of you to see exactly what they do and find out about the different types of opportunities and careers available in advertising sales.

Towards the end of 2018 took on two cohorts of Work Experience in October and December. 

We offered something a little different in December for those 18 years old and over, so instead of spending the week with a specific department you will spend the week with 4Talent learning all about jobs in the media, how to create a brilliant CV and tips and tricks to starting your career in the media! You will also hear from departments across Channel 4 and learn what they do, as well as have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the industry or your future.

Applications for work experience are now closed. We will be releasing our Work Experience 2019 dates in the coming weeks. 

If you have any questions regarding eligibility, email us at
