About the Event

Throughout April WFTV will be hosting a special event series on upskilling, with talks, workshops and 1-2-1 clinics designed to develop your skillset. From focused insights on different fields and roles in the industry to how you can best collaborate with others and, get the most out of your project, there’s something for everyone whichever stage of your career you’re at.

We are joined by Jules Waring, who recruits freelancers for RDF Television as Head of Production Talent. Having worked her way up to Series Producer level in unscripted TV, Jules moved over to talent management nearly 20 years ago.

Both a CV and cover letter are the marketing tools which tell a company why you and your experience should be considered for a role on an upcoming production or within a company. In this practical session, Jules will give you some tips on how to refresh your CV and how to accompany it with a strong cover letter you feel really confident with.

Attendees are welcome to submit any CV and cover letter questions that they have before the event so that we can make sure they’re covered during the session. You can do this on your registration form when booking a ticket or sending them directly to amylouise@wftv.org.uk

Julia Waring, Head of Production Talent, RDF Television, part of the Banijay Group

Julia started working in television as a production secretary in drama in 1985, moving over to factual a couple of years later. Here, she began as a researcher, moving to AP and then Producer through freelance jobs at ITV, Mentorn and various other indies, until joining RDF Television in its infancy in May 1997. After running what was tantamount to a news desk for RDF International, and SPing various in-house productions, she sidestepped the mechanics of making television programmes and was given the post of recruiting other people to do that.
