We’d like to invite you to the Media Parents networking evening in Bristol on Tuesday 28th June, it’s going to be a great opportunity for top end editorial TV production talent to network with Execs. The date has been changed so that Nick Shearman, Knowledge Commissioning Exec, Network, can join us.
What is Media Parents?
www.mediaparents.co.uk is a new jobs and social networking website for experienced media people. The Media Parents site showcases experienced talent, lists flexible and standard TV and film contracts, it has a blog, a chat forum and a thriving network, like a mini LinkedIn for media.
What happens at the event?
The networking event will take place from 6:30pm till 9pm on Tuesday 28th of June at BBC Broadcasting House on Whiteladies Road. Execs will introduce their companies and then station themselves at tables to chat with freelancers for approx ten minute slots. Freelancers bring a CV to discuss, and without the direct pressure of a job interview it’s a great opportunity to put a face to a name in a relatively informal setting. There will also be breaks, and more informal networking towards the end of the evening.
If you would like to come please send a CV and covering letter titled with your full name, job title and genre to firstname.lastname@example.org On the night you’ll be given the name of someone to head for at a particular time. This is what we posted in advance of our last networking event so that everyone could find each other:
