ITV tunes into graduate programme
Mon, 30 Apr 2012
ITV launches its first-ever graduate recruitment campaign today. Ten graduate roles will be offered for two-year placements, according to Catherine Schlieben, ITV head of recruitment.
The broadcaster already offers 10 one-year news traineeships for entry-level journalists. That initiative will run alongside the new graduate recruitment programme.
Schlieben told Recruiter that placements in the graduate programme will be made in three areas: commercial, corporate (finance and human resources) and creative production.
The graduate recruitment programme is the latest step for ITV in a restructuring and refocusing of the company’s recruitment activities that began two years ago.
Schlieben outlined the changes made to date at a conference last week held by The Forum for In-House Recruitment Managers (The FIRM) in London.
