Channel 4’s vision is to represent unheard voices: Channel 4 has a strong commitment to representing the whole of the UK. It means using their strong brand and wide reach to elevate unheard voices – from diverse communities, emerging writers and producers, to those with different viewpoints or experiences.

Challenge with purpose: Channel 4 are here to challenge groupthink and hold power to account. They don’t challenge for the sake of it. They’re here to test boundaries, challenge conventions and inspire reflection and critical thought.

Reinvent entertainment: Channel 4 has a long-established role as an innovator in the creative industries across ‘entertainment’ in the broadest sense: they challenge themselves to continuously refresh what they do creatively; to develop new and emerging talent; to find new ways of reaching audiences; and to find new ways of working with their partners.

The C4 ‘4Skills’ team seeks out talent and gives it somewhere to grow. It doesn’t matter how old you are or where you come from; it’s what you’re passionate about that interests them. Whatever that may be, they're here to help you find that first opportunity. So, where would you like to go?

“I wanted to get on-the-job experience within an industry I was really passionate about. I felt that it would be better for me to apply for an apprenticeship as it gives me the opportunity to network, form connections and experience real industry situations rather than simulated experiences created within university.” – Paula Oyemike – Channel 4 Commissioning Operations Apprentice.
