VIKKI BARRON IS A TALENT MANAGER IN TALENT AND TRAINING AT ITV
The Media Parents CV Event is a great opportunity to get CV advice and network. If you’re coming back to work after a career break, thinking of moving from production to office-based TV, or if you are just think your CV could do with a revamp, then this is the event for you.
After taking a 6 month career break to travel, Vikki Barron returned to ITV earlier this year to work with Sally Saunders in ITV’s newly structured talent and training team.
Prior to joining ITV’s Talent Team Vikki spent 10 years working in TV production, mainly in Production Management, at Carlton TV and ITV. Vikki has worked on smaller documentaries, formatted series and larger reality shows including Airline, Come Dine with Me, Hells Kitchen and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
On the larger reality shows Vikki found herself drawn towards staffing and crew management which led to an opportunity to cover a maternity leave when she joined ITV Factual’s Unit Management team for 18 months before her last production managing stint on the US version of I’m A Celebrity in Costa Rica.
ITV’s Talent and Training Team has been actively supporting Media Parents from its research and development stage, and has advertised several jobs through us. Ex-ITV staffers also spoke at the Media Parents Flexible Working meeting detailing job share and flexibility within ITV.
