The Trainee Finder database gives you access to all the trainees currently part of the scheme. You can search for trainees by location, job role and availability.

Once you have reviewed the profile of the relevant trainees you can select as many as you want to contact. The expression of interest button on the trainee’s profile will alert the Trainee Finder team who will then send you the contact details of the trainees so you can contact them for interview.

You will agree training placement dates with each trainee as well as confirming the trainee’s job role and how much they will be paid (see below for the parameters of acceptable pay for a trainee on Trainee Finder).

Once these factors are agreed, get back in touch with the Trainee Finder team and we issue a contract confirming the above which all three of us sign.

The appointed supervisor and the trainee will agree a training plan at the start of the placement benchmarking the trainees’ skills, and learning objectives. At the end of the placement the training plan will evidence how far the trainee has progressed. Subsequent placements for the trainee will build on these achievements.

Important points to note

For your production to be eligible to access Trainee Finder, you must have agreed to contribute to the film skills levy. For levy enquiries and payments, please contact Lauren Grace Bergin, Production Liaison Coordinator
