Screen NETS develops and delivers paid on the job training and career support programmes for new and recently entered practitioners to the industry. Our ethos is to widen access to industry for all.    

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to Covid-19 and the current restrictions and protocols put in place to keep crew safe during the pandemic, a driving licence is required for all trainee positions this year.   We know that this will disappoint many who would wish to apply but we must follow the guidelines of the TV and film productions that we are working with for the safety of all.  If you can’t drive for medical reasons, please call our helpline to discuss how we may still be able to support you.  

Block 2 – The Rig.  We are working with the Amazon Original series, The Rig, which will launch globally on Prime Video, and the 4 trainees, will be based at First Stage Studios in Leith, Edinburgh.  This will be for the duration of the series from late March until early August 2021.   There may then be opportunities for further placements on other film and High End TV productions across Scotland.  

Block 3 – Screen NETS Main Programme.  This is a comprehensive 9 month contract aiming from mid-April 2021 and trainees will have placement opportunities on various film and high-end TV drama productions filming in Scotland.  

We aim to select individuals who are keen to specialise in the specific departments we are recruiting for and may have some limited entry-level experience or transferrable skills that will meet the criteria for these specific departments.  You must be based in Scotland to apply. 

Applications are strongly encouraged from people who are traditionally under-represented in the industry and may have faced barriers to entry due to their ethnicity, disability, social class, sexual orientation, sex or gender.  We are also keen to hear from those with transferable skills, rurally excluded, and the first in family to enter the industry.  

There is a separate Application Form and Guideline pack for each programme. Please select and read carefully.
