Why should I apply? 

Based either in Belfast or on locations around Northern Ireland, this programme will give you:

  • On-the-job experience working behind the scenes of a production.
  • Off-the-job training led by industry experts.
  • Networking opportunities with crew.

Before starting and throughout your time on the production, you will be given training in:

  • Set etiquette and resilience training for life on production.
  • Understanding key production paperwork and terminology.
  • Guidance on how to be a freelancer.
  • CV preparation and interview practice.



Productions are looking for passionate, dynamic and driven people who want to work behind the scenes; people who have a clear ability to solve problems, think on their feet, and work as part of a busy team.

To successfully join as a trainee on this production, we are looking to see skills you have demonstrated in any area of your life from education, part time work or personal projects or events. No previous production experience is required.


Minimum eligibility criteria:

  • 18 and over and not in full time education.
  • Northern Ireland resident.
  • Unrestricted right to live and work in the UK.

We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds – whoever you are, wherever you’re from. This includes women, non-binary people, disabled people, people from disadvantaged backgrounds, LGBTQIA+ people, and those who are returning to work after a break for parenting or caring.



Apply here. 

Applications will close at midnight on 6 May 2024.

We appreciate the time and effort that goes into applying and we will review every application individually. We anticipate that interviews will take place in May 2024.

PLEASE NOTE: Your application must be completed in one session as it cannot be saved for future completion.
