Our Founder and Managing Director Edd Buckley offers career mentoring for those looking to enter the media production industry, or those who are already working in it and would like guidance for the long-term.

Drawing on over 10 years’ experience in the industry, he provides industry specific advice and support and shows you how to get your foot in the door and build your way up.  His emphasis is on improving employability and making media careers accessible to people from all backgrounds and walks of life.

When it comes to establishing a successful media career Edd speaks from first-hand experience.  He began working in television production at 16-years-old and by just 23 had become a producer.  He has worked on a wide range of programmes for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and MTV.

One-to-One Career Mentoring
With one-to-one career mentoring you have several meetings with Edd (either in person or via Skype), each with an individual focus on identifying, planning and developing your career.  Together you look at the specific steps you need to take and put together a plan of action.  Edd also covers CV writing, personal branding, interview techniques and networking skills.

Group Sessions
Edd travels around the UK, working with universities, colleges, schools and independent organisations, providing the skills, knowledge and guidance required to succeed in the media.  His group careers package includes a detailed lecture and presentation, a Q&A session and one-to-one career guidance meetings.

He shows you how to write a media CV, how to market yourself, where to search for jobs, how to standout in an interview, how to network successfully, how to climb the ladder and, very importantly, what not to do.  He explains the different roles and career paths available, and goes through the various areas and genres and how they differ from one another.

CV Writing
Our sister company CV Land provides a professional CV writing service for those working in or looking to work in the creative and media industries.
