I am self motivated and excited to join the ITV team and crew. I want to be a part of what the ITV can offer me and other individuals in this scheme, the combined passion and innovative experience of industry professionals could enlighten me with my involvement during my time at the ITV.

I am a post-graduate student who has spent the last six years working and studying in a media environment, I have worked my way through entry level college through to a university degree level. During this time I have amassed a plethora of skills allowing me to compete in video production based competitions and being successful in some of these opportunities.

Competitions have not only been opportunities for myself in the past but work with the local council, businesses and charities. These include Young Mayor Candidate interviews, Halloween zombie fun runs and virtual reality advertisement for a local country park. I am applying for this scheme to further my skill set whilst working with the best personalities in the industry. I am constantly striving to aim high and by having this prospect I can then continue my journey is self discovery and improvement.

I could bring to ITV a fresh personality, with a clear understanding of media, social, industry trends and technology. With this chance I could bring a warm and friendly personality, an eagerness for learning and wholesome new face. I have an outright wanting to work with the best and the ITV is a worldwide known and respected business in the industry. The ITV is a company I want to be a affiliated with personally and professionally. I hope to take full advantage of the training and experience that will be supplied by the ITV throughout the scheme.
