If you are looking for an opportunity to gain work experience and a qualification, then an apprenticeship at Channel 4 might be for you!

Department Description:
4Sales is the financial engine-room of Channel 4. This team of over 250 people secure investment from advertisers which then funds almost everything else their business does. That pre-roll ad for a supermarket on All 4 has [in part] funded British film-makers through Film4 and that brand which sponsors comedy on 4 has [in part] funded Channel 4 News’ award-winning journalism.

4Sales secures revenue from advertisers by offering a suite of advertising products to purchase across their entire TV and Digital portfolio – and some of the portfolios of UKTV and Discovery, whom they represent in the advertising market. Most of their team (including this role) are based in their London HQ, with further smaller teams in Manchester and Leeds. This role sits at the heart of 4Sales, as part of a small Commercial Marketing and Events team. It’s their job to make 4Sales famous [well, in advertising circles at least] and to make their products and services attractive to potential advertisers and media buying agencies.

By joining this team, you’ll be in the thick of the action, supporting the rest of the team on collaborative projects and being asked to work proactively on initiatives of your own. Creative minds are welcomed, but a penchant for the logistical and administrative tasks that make events happen is also a must.
