Our relationship with MAMA Youth Project goes way beyond simply diversifying our team.
It has allowed us to employ consistently outstanding young people who are, without exception, well trained, hard working, respectful, diligent and industry ready. We are very proud to be a MAMA Youth partner and to play a small part in their great work.
We were incredibly impressed by the six week digital media training course ran by MAMA Youth. The team have really understood the broad range of skills and knowledge required to work across all areas of social media in TV and content production and provided a training programme that enables candidates to perform duties and offer relevant experience and skills to any team they join. We have two internship vacancies and interviewed six candidates from the latest digital media training programme, all of whom could have been recruited to join our busy team. We were blown away by the calibre of talent and their understanding of the role and our needs. They all displayed a real passion for gaining experience with us and had brilliant ideas and creative thinking on how to achieve our goals.
The quality of the training experience with MAMA Youth Project is outstanding; nowhere else would I have gained such an inspirational step up into a future career in the media industry. Thanks to MAMA Youth Project, I can now aim higher and am more optimistic than ever. I hope it will be able to continue to help other young people who just need that hand outstretched to help
Being an employer where everyone feels at home and can be the best version of themselves is a core value of ours. MAMA Youth are the best in the market for sourcing and developing a truly diverse pipeline of talent that is ready for production.
The misrepresentation of people from under-represented groups in the media negatively affects society. We want to change this. The MAMA Youth Project recruits, trains and nurtures young people between 18-25 years of age from under-represented groups or with limited educational or employment opportunities. Through training projects we equip people with the skills and experience necessary to secure long-term and fulfilling employment in the TV and media industry. We particularly focus on young people with limited educational or employment opportunities, including unemployed graduates. We are committed to getting young people into employment and to bringing diversity to the media industry.
