http://www.mediaparents.co.uk/ is a jobs and social networking website for parents and others who want to work flexibly in TV. 5000 women and 750 men left TV over the last 3 years – Media Parents is hoping to stem this talent drain and keep talented people working in media.
Media Parents is currently organising a meeting : Can TV Work More Flexibly in the South West? which will take place on Tuesday November 23rd at 6:00pm at BBC Bristol. The simple aim of this meeting is to share information on best practice of flexible working as a partial and positive solution to some of the problems we are facing in TV, as outlined by Skillset’s recent data. We hope that the meeting will result in more media employers and freelancers being open to the idea of job sharing and flexible working, and seeing a way to make this happen.
Freelancers and employers representing the following companies and more will be attending the meeting in Bristol on the 23rd: 3 Days, Aardman, Aqua Vita Films, Available Light Television, BBC, Bristol Anchor Partnership, Quickfire Media, RDF Television West, Skillset, South West Screen, Touch Productions and Media Parents. To join us please email email@example.com We are currently in process of trying to set up a creche for the event so let us know if you would be bringing your children.
