Equal Access Network

London is one of the world’s most diverse cities, as well as one of the best for film, TV and post-production.

We want to ensure the capital’s screen industries represent the city itself, and our Equal Access Network forms part of this plan.

From new entrants and trainees early in their careers to parents and caregivers returning to work, we’ve helped major film, TV and post-production companies widen the net when it comes to recruitment, working with a range of organisations and training providers who have links with under-represented communities across the capital.

Companies we helped find talented, ambitious workers in 2017 include the Ink Factory, Tiger Aspect, Molinare, Michelle Kass Associates and Twickenham Studios.

This year, we want to take our work to the next level and, whether you’re an employer or a would-be employee, we need you to help us do it.

We’re looking for:

  • Companies across London seeking the best and brightest below-the-line.
  • Parents/caregivers looking to return to the industry after a career break.
  • New entrants and those at an early stage in their careers.
  • Training providers working with under-represented communities across London.
