Television is exciting to work in, whether out on site with a film crew, playing a role in interviewing, helping to write and edit a story or even helping in administration.

Intern in television, television production, editing and/or scriptwriting. You'll work in areas such as camera and sound, script writing, research, presenting, business administration, and marketing. Television is exciting to work in, whether out on site with a film crew, playing a role in interviewing, helping to write and edit a story or even helping in administration.

Experience the best of Perth's community action whilst gaining vital work experience at a local TV station. This placement will be an excellent addition to your CV.

FREE TOUR OF PERTH: If you do any placement in Perth, a CITY CULTURAL TOUR is included for free! You'll soak up the many faces of Perth, from the relaxed yet buzzing atmosphere to the impressive cultural elements that make up this fascinating city. This is a wonderful way to get to know your new home.

ABOUT COMMUNITY TELEVISION: Almost all of the people who work in community television - writers, presenters, producers, editors, and camera operators - are volunteers. People, like you, who volunteer because they want to develop the skills associated with television production and to gain important industry experience or simply for the sheer enjoyment and thrill of working in television.

Community television produces and broadcasts locally-produced programs that are relevant to the community, including educational institutions, independent film makers, ethnic and specialist interest groups and local businesses.

This project offers you the chance to intern with a not-for-profit community television service which provides individuals and community, cultural or educational organisations access to airtime, training and equipment to produce programs for broadcast.

You'll work in areas such as camera and sound, script writing, research, presenting, business administration (doing administration work is a great way to get to know the organisation), and marketing. If you have a specialised interest, for example, marketing or editing, we will do our best to allocate you more time in that area. Generally, though, you may be asked to help with in the areas of:

  • Administration
  • Production
  • Editing
  • Scriptwriting
  • Research
  • Public Relations
  • Fundraising;
  • and have the opportunity to be a member of a support crew on location.

The work that you'll be involved in will depend on what is required and available at the time of your placement.

To sum up the 4 weeks I have spent on my TV placement in Perth, I have thoroughly enjoyed receiving hands on experience. I feel that where in the UK you would not be used for anything more than making the tea, here you are granted the freedom to be creative; to think and research interesting briefs and then to be allowed to go and shoot them at various locations. The pace of life may not be as busy as UK media offices, but it is a perfect opportunity to ease yourself into the industry, without it being too daunting. Carmen Butcher
