Media Parents is the brainchild of Amy Walker, a Series Producer with more than 13 years international experience in television. Her work includes output for the major UK networks – BBC, Channel4, and ITV – across a variety of genres.
Since her first TV job as Peter Bazalgette’s PA, Amy has read a million CVs. Since setting up Media Parents she has read a hell of a lot more – generally really good ones.
Work on high volume, fast-turnaround series has made Amy adept at choosing excellent production talent with targeted skills for high pressure jobs. She is well-connected amongst freelancers and at senior management level within the UK TV industry.
Before working in TV Amy worked in theatre, and as a print journalist / editor, so she has first-hand experience of flexible working across media. She believes passionately in transferrable skills, flexible working, and that Media Parents can help to facilitate a happier work / life balance for many people in media.
Amy will be at the Media Parents CV Event on Thursday 7th October and would love to hear the pieces of CV advice that were your lightbulb moments so they can be posted here.
