New supporters announced for ScreenSkills’ Unscripted TV Skills Fund

Jane Muirhead, chair of the Unscripted TV Skills council and co-founder and managing director, Raise the Roof Productions, said: “All of us at the coal face of this recruitment crisis have been crying out for this collective approach to improve inclusion, boost availability of skilled crew and talent across the UK, and future-proof the unscripted TV industry. It’s brilliant news that ITV and Amazon’s Prime Video have joined us and demonstrates that we all share common goals.”

Sinead Rocks, chair of the Unscripted TV Skills Fund steering group and managing director, nations and regions, Channel 4, said: ‘It’s great that Amazon’s Prime Video and ITV have come on board; having the support of so many broadcasters, streamers and production companies gives us a real step change when it comes to investment in the unscripted workforce. I’m delighted that Sarah Joyce and the team at ScreenSkills are so committed to making our industry’s ambitions for a more skilled and inclusive workforce into a reality – especially in the nations and regions.” Click here to continue reading
