Aim High


*Please note, AIM HIGH is currently not open for applications*

AIM HIGH, the new entrant training scheme for aspiring TV producers, is back! Northern Ireland Screen and BBC Northern Ireland are looking for motivated, passionate storytellers to take part in this prestigious training scheme. We want creative people who can bring fresh ideas to programme-making, but not necessarily people with academic qualifications.

There are nine places available and we expect a high level of competition. If you gain a place on AIM HIGH you will be given an 18 month contract (minimum wage) and have the opportunity to work on national and international television projects as well as short form digital projects for online platforms. We will train and develop you for a career in the media and you will be assigned a senior industry mentor. You will be expected to work unconventional hours and to tight deadlines and you must be able to work flexibly.

Applicants will initially be invited to complete an online assessment.  From there, shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an assessment centre where they will be evaluated in both team and individual tasks.

The final nine successful applicants will then go on to complete an intensive two week ‘boot camp’ where they will be introduced to the craft of storytelling for national and international television production.  After this they will undertake a series of placements in a variety of independent production companies and BBC Northern Ireland for the duration of the scheme.
