New podcast launched for young people wanting to work in media

Media Careers is a new podcast for young people interested in working in the media.

Launched today, the podcast intends to break down some of the barriers to a career in the media industry by providing inspiration and information for students across secondary schools and in higher education, with direct links to industry professionals and supporting organisations.

It will feature professionals from across the industry, including Sky, ITV, and Pinewood Studios, who talk about their education and career journey, how they landed their first job and insight into the specific role they’re doing now.

The podcast gives a glimpse behind the scenes and showcases a variety of different jobs in media, as well as the skills and personality traits best suited to them.

Media Careers aims to support young people as they enter the world of work and expand their understanding of what’s possible.

Carrie Wootten, Founder of Media Careers says: “I’m delighted to be launching this new initiative that continues to build on my previous work, ensuring that we break down barriers and provide opportunities for young people to enter our industry.

“I’m excited about the top tips and inspiration that my guests share on the podcast and the positive impact this could have on young talent. I am fully aware that young people do not have access to information to help support pathways into our industry. This podcast intends to change that.”

The podcast is available on most podcast platforms and you can find out more on the Media Careers website.
