Screen NETS Changing Lanes Recruiting


Screen NETS (film & TV industry on the job training) is currently recruiting trainees for Changing Lanes - a programme designed to recruit and support those from industries identified as having been adversely affected by the pandemic. 


We are primarily focusing on recruiting practitioners who have recently been working in Theatre, Live Events, Retail or Hairdressing to work on a feature film starting this winter.   


This is a bespoke programme funded through Screen Scotland by the Scottish Government’s National Transition Training Fund.  


You must be based in Scotland and have a clean UK driving licence (unless you can’t drive for medical reasons) to apply and meet specific skills criteria.  


Our priority roles for the Changing Lanes programme are 

  • Costume
  • Make Up
  • Camera
  • Location Sound
  • Digital Image Technician ( DIT) 

We are also keen, however, to hear from those from the same sectors who are interested in other film and TV departments and have transferable skills so please do get in touch if this is you.  We are also open to other sectors that have been impacted.


In the first instance, please send your CV and a covering email to Catherine Aitken at  

Please answer the following questions in your email

  1. What department are you applying for and what transferable skills do you have to bring to the role.  Max 75 words 
  2. What sector had you been working in from those identified above and how was your work affected by the pandemic. 
  3. If you are interested in working in a different department from those we are prioritising please let us know which department and answer the above Qs for your chosen department 

Please note:

You can only apply for one department

You should be available to start work 

  •  Mid November for Costume or Make Up
