Broadcast runs joint survey: How Much Do You Love Your Job?

  • News

Jay Blades Broadcast and the Edinburgh TV Festival are joining forces to discover how people feel about working in the TV industry and what it can do to help them thrive.

The ‘How Much Do You Love Your Job?’ survey, which opens today, aims to find out what people value about working in our sector, whether the pandemic has changed how they feel about it and whether they’ve ever considered an alternative profession.

Broadcast wants to hear from as many people across the industry as possible, at all stages of their career. To participate in the short survey, click here.

It will be open to complete until Friday 5 August, and its results will feed into a panel at the festival entitled Life Lessons from Beyond the TV Bubble.

In it, presenter Anna Richardson will invite people who have left the sector to discuss how the lessons they’ve learnt in their new roles could help the TV industry.

Panellists will include Julie Swanston, former commissioning executive at UKTV, and now senior creative director at theme park-company Merlin Entertainment, and Jasper Warry, founder of production company Hello Deer, who stepped away from TV 14 years ago to run a glamping site in the Brecon Beacons but has now returned to producing and directing documentaries.

Former Channel 4 commissioning editor-turned-psychotherapist Tamara Abood and the ex-controller of ITV digital studios Juliette Otterburn-Hall, who now runs her own business consultancy, will also be on the panel.

The panel session will run on Friday 26 August from 11.45am until 12.45pm in the Sidlaw auditorium. For more information about the festival, click here
