Placements, Internships and Insights
SIGN has provided five Yorkshire and Humber-based SMEs funding to host a placement, internship or insight (work shadowing) opportunity, from July 2021. The successful businesses have been awarded up to £6,000 to pay an individual for up to three months. To be eligible, SMEs had to work in any of the screen sector industries (film, TV, gaming and other digital media) and be based in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
Funding was awarded to SMEs who could demonstrate that they will support individuals from diverse backgrounds who have been excluded from getting into or developing their career in the screen industries.
We are seeking to support people from ethnically underrepresented backgrounds. This includes those who identify as coming from lower socio-economic backgrounds, disabled people, women, LGBTQ+ people, and those who are aged over 35 joining or returning to the sector.
Applications for this scheme closed on Sunday 25th April 2021.
