• 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
  • I help support the recruitment and delivery of Channel 4's Early Careers Schemes/ I also manage and create content for our 4Skills social media accounts. My role involves manning the Apprenticeship/4Skills email inboxes, attending careers fairs, shortlisting candidates and creating assets/video content for our various social media channels.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • Since starting my apprenticeship, I have developed and aquired many skills. Having hosted and manned various talking events, I am now confident in public speaking and presenting which was one of my weak points when I first joined. I also have an understanding of the recruitment process and candidate lifecycle, competently shortlisting and assessing applicants.


  • 3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
  • I am very happy in my job role. The workplace culture is very relaxes and my team are super supportive. I get many opporunities to be creative and am always acknowledged for the work I do.


  • 4. How well organised/structured is your programme?
  • The entire recruitment process through the onboarding was very supportive. My inital training and induction was well organised and I feel like I have a clear structure to my weeks


  • 5. How much support do you receive from your employer?
  • My whole team is incredibly supportive, my line manager always checks-in and ensures I haven't got too much on my plate. The benefits and other pastoral support at Channel 4 is great.


  • 6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?
  • My tutor is very reliable and supportive. She is understanding of my workload and is willing to be flexible on deadlines if needs be. She always responds to any queries I have quickly and effectively.


  • 7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?
  • I'd say pretty well. I gain a more holistic understanding of the recruitment process, including how to communicate with candidates and deliver a better customer service experience.


  • 8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)
  • I have had many opportunities to attend networking events as well as careers fairs or hosting our own career days. The Early Careers Team often set up apprentice socials too so we can catch up with eachother. One of the other perks is getting to attend exclusive screenings and panels/talks from Channel 4 Talent.


  • 9a. Would you recommend Channel 4 to a friend?
  • Yes

  • 9b. Why?
  • It's an incredibly friendly and relaxed workplace. Everyone wants you to succeed in your role and will give you amazing support and advice towards this.
