Some of the 80-strong crowd at the Media Parents networking event in Bristol in 2013. To join us at our Cardiff Event on April 29th please send a CV marked with your name, job title and genre to events@mediaparents.co.uk NOW

Media Parents’ latest networking event is on Tuesday 29th April in Cardiff, kindly sponsored by Boom Pictures and Dragonfly Film & TV. If you are an experienced freelancer working in factual or drama we’d love you to join us. We introduce freelancers to employers in a relaxed environment, without the pressure of an interview. Our networking events combine timed “speed networking” sessions, and informal networking. You don’t have to be a parent, you just need to be experienced, as our events are open to people with three or more years’ TV experience. The jobs we advertise are sometimes flexible, sometimes standard TV mayhem. To join us in Cardiff you must be on the guestlist so please email your CV, with your name, job title and genre in the title bar, to the email address below. Meanwhile enjoy some photos of last year’s networking event in Bristol which was attended by more than 80 freelancers and employers. A good time was had by all.

Thanks to Chris Hutchins and his team at the BBC for hosting and sponsoring the event.

Huge thanks to RDF West who also sponsored the event and employed through it soon afterwards.

Producer Harriet Talley came along to the event, after a break from the industry. She has since been sponsored and mentored through the Media Parents Back to Work Scheme by the BBC.

Indus' Jamie Balment meets a freelancer. We're delighted to say that Boom Pictures, which includes Indus Films, will be sponsoring the Cardiff event.

These events are a lot of work to organise, but a lot of fun when you get to meet people. Media Parents Director Amy Walker, pictured right of frame.

Helen Hagelthorn works part time at the BBC, and worked very hard with us to make the event happen. Thank you!

A big thank you to Dick Colthurst from Tigress Productions for attending.
