Timeshift: Skillset

The deadline for TimeShift applications has now been extended to Friday 3rd February.

Calling all female film professionals…

Backed by the European Social Fund Equal Programme, Skillset has partnered with the UK Film Council to deliver TimeShift a unique scheme which is set to break the mould in film production.

The scheme will provide 16 female film professionals (8 teams of 2) with job share roles on film productions. Each woman will receive £100 per working week towards childcare costs, which is in addition to the salary paid to the team by the production.

In addition, each production that recruits a team will receive £180 per working week per team (for example, a production hosting 2 teams over a 20 week period would be awarded £7,200).

Candidates should have a minimum of 3 years working experience.

Applications are now being accepted. You can apply to the scheme in teams of two in the following grades:

Production Accountants;
Assistant Production Accountants;
Production Coordinators;
Boom Operators;
Production Design Assistants;
Costume Assistants;
Art Department Assistants;
Prop Buyers;
Locations Assistants;
3rd AD's;
Assistant Editors.

Extended Deadline for application is 3rd February 2006. Those selected will be invited to take part in an interview on 14 th February 2006, so please keep this date free.
