We were delighted to host the hugely successful Open Doors Careers Day yesterday, run by Creative Skillset and funded by the High End TV Skills Fund.
The sold out event was packed with fresh new production talent who were able to find out more about working in TV drama across location, make up, costume, camera, art department and much more. Industry professionals were on hand to give their career advice in what was a very busy and truly inspiring evening.
We’ve no doubt we’ll be seeing some faces again in the future when this new generation of crew are working on productions filming at the Studios! Best of luck to all of you.

Brilliant event at @TheBottleYard held by @wearehiive and @SkillsetSSC – a great way to chat to others interested in the same industry and learn a few things from those already established – extremely insightful evening.

Such a great event. It was fantastic to talk to senior people working in the industry right now about what they’re looking for in trainees. An invaluable opportunity. Thank you.
