Full Time Temporary Contact: HR Team

Good Omens Series 2, produced by BBC Studios together with Amazon
Prime, are committed to providing equal opportunities for all employees and
increasing diversity in the Film and TV industry.

We encourage applicants from underrepresented backgrounds and therefore would like to offer the
opportunity to one applicant from the Highlands and Islands to join our trainee
scheme on Good Omens Series 2.

Accommodation and travel will be provided for the successful applicant. This production is based near Bathgate and will be filming in studios and locations in the Central Belt of Scotland.

This paid traineeship, in association with Screen Scotland, will not only introduce you to the world of film and TV making but will teach, train and develop your skills. You will be gaining on the job experience, learning a wide range of skills and knowledge from your mentor and the rest of your team. There will also be the opportunity to participate in external training courses relevant to the
industry and your department. No previous experience is required.

Due to Covid-19 all trainees must be able to travel to the production base and the locations safely which means ideally avoiding public transport. In addition, some of the roles, for example camera, AD, grip or locations will require travel to a variety of different locations outside of towns and cities early in the morning and possibly late at night so are likely to necessitate being driven or driving
yourself. For the successful candidates provisions will be made for those who are unable to drive or who do not have a car.

Filming will commence in October and the trainee will have some prep time before the filming begins. The scheme will finish on or around 11th March.

There will be a three week hiatus over Christmas.
