Presentation – Trainee Finder

Trainee Finder is a service that matches trainees with companies across the UK’s animation, games, film, high-end TV and VFX industries. The scheme is supported by Creative Skillset’s Skills Investment Fund (SIF) which encourages co-investment in skills and training to ensure a continued supply of a new generation of talent, capable of world-class creative content. The talk will discuss the benefits of the scheme from the Trainee’s perspective and the Studio; making it more affordable to bring fresh talent on to a project through longer, more meaningful placements, giving both the studio and trainee time to develop skills and relationships.
