About the Film and TV Charity
The film, TV and cinema sector is a jewel in the UK’s crown, both in terms of our exceptional creative talent and the sector’s growing economic importance, but a culture of long hours, challenging conditions, and an acceptance of a long-held status quo also mean it can be an incredibly tough sector to work in, with the retention of talent an ongoing problem as a result.
In 2019, research commissioned by the charity found that 9 in 10 working behind the scenes had experienced poor mental health. The pandemic has only served to exacerbate the problem, while the harrowing conversations that followed the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020 have further highlighted the systemic nature of discrimination.
Since the introduction of the Film and TV Support Line in 2018, the charity has been on an exciting journey of change and has joined industry partners at the forefront of the movement to make work better for everyone in the industry. As well as providing mental health and financial support and practical resources that are making a difference to thousands of people every year, we have committed to ensuring our services are relevant to and engaging with everyone in the industry, at every stage of their career, no matter what their background. This has included a commitment to becoming an actively Anti-Racist organisation. This means an honest look at the charity, our internal policies and all our outputs going forward. We recognise the importance of long-term investment in this process as we make permanent, structural changes to ensure support is readily accessible to Black, Asian and minority ethnic people in our industry. We are also applying the same principles to other under-represented groups.

What we look for in a candidate
An understanding of how the film and/or television industry works is preferable, as is a real desire to be part of a team that is passionate about making a difference. You will be a committed team member but also confident working on your own initiative.
This hands-on role is both creative and technical and will play a key role in the expansion and development of the charity’s digital services.
The charity recognises that people from some backgrounds are under-represented in the film and TV industry and in the third sector and is committed to doing what it can to correct this. Therefore, we are especially keen to receive applications from people of colour; people with disabilities; those who identify as LGBTQIA; people with a mental health condition; and people who identify as working class now or in the past.
If you need us to make any adjustments to our recruitment process, we will be happy to support you
Closing date for applications: 13th September
