Screen NETS

Screen NETS (film & TV industry on the job training) is currently recruiting trainees for 6-8 weeks for a new 3 part HETV drama series, shooting in Glasgow in April and May.


Screen NETS is a long-established training programme supporting new entrants into the screen industries.  For this programme, we are primarily focusing on recruiting new entrants who live outside the main central belt production hubs of Glasgow and Edinburgh.


Trainees are paid the Real Living Wage and will have their travel and temporary accommodation in Glasgow paid for the duration of the placement.


This is a bespoke training programme funded through Screen Scotland and the BBC.


You must be based in Scotland and live out with the central belt cities to apply and meet specific skills criteria.  We will select 4 trainees, from the following departments, who will be training to be assistants. 


Our priority roles for this programme are:

  • Locations
  • Production Office
  • Assistant Directing/Floor Runner
  • Location Sound
  • Camera


Applications are strongly encouraged from people who are traditionally under represented in the industry or may have faced barriers to entry.


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


Please answer the following questions briefly in your email:

  1. What department are you applying for and what experience or transferable skills do you have to bring to the role. 
  2. What region of Scotland do you currently live in? (Or if you have moved to the central belt from elsewhere in Scotland in the last three months we are still keen to hear from you).


Please note:

You can only apply for one department; students in full time education are not eligible to apply. 

You should be available to start work:

  •  Production Office, Locations and Assistant Directing from start of April
  • Camera or Sound from week beginning 18th April
