Grip Department Trainee opportunity



Date Posted: September 20, 2021

Northern Ireland Screen is running a skills development scheme called Production, Craft and Technical Skills.  The scheme will provide training opportunities in varied roles in the film and television industry.

We are currently looking for a Grip Department Trainee. The main role of trainee grips is to learn the trade. Grips’ equipment, cranes, jibs and dollies, can be used in different ways. Trainee grips watch everything that’s happening to learn how the gear is used and how to operate it.

Trainee grips start the day by helping to unload the truck with the gear that supports the cameras. Under supervision from the qualified Grips, they move the equipment to the right place on location.

Trainee grips are on set throughout the day. At the end of each shot, they help put equipment away that’s no longer needed and set up the kit for the next shot. They do this until the end of filming.

The closing date for applications is Monday 27th September at 12 noon.
