Available on Spotify and Apple, the Media Careers Podcast is aimed at young people interested in the screen industries and was created in response to the ever-growing skills shortages in many areas of the screen sector. We at Into Film are proud to be working in partnership with Media Careers to deliver the podcast.
The Media Careers Podcast breaks down barriers to accessing a career in the screen industries by providing inspiration and information for students in secondary schools, offering direct links to industry professionals and supporting organisations. The podcast covers the breadth and variety of roles across the industry, featuring both creative and technical roles for TV, broadcast, film, media technology, animation and gaming.
If you're a careers lead, or teach young people that may be interested, please share these podcast links with them and encourage them to listen. New episodes are released regularly, so keep checking back for more!
Listeners will hear from professionals across the industry - including those from Sky, ITV, and Pinewood Studios - who discuss their own education and career journeys, how they landed their first jobs, and what their current roles involve.
The show provides a glimpse behind the scenes, showcasing a variety of different jobs in media, as well as the skills and personality traits best suited to them. Media Careers aims to support young people as they enter the world of work and expand their understanding of what's possible.
There are so many great opportunities for young people in the world of screen and through this partnership our aim is to inspire and support them to take their interest further.Carrie Wootten, Founder of Media Careers Podcast
