Here's what our indies say about the scheme...
 

“As indies we all know we need to be doing more to ensure our staff reflect the population actually watching our content. This scheme is brilliant and one way of addressing that issue – it’s really well run, the candidates are diverse and whilst the trainees get lots of experience on our productions they also get loads of additional training and support to help ensure they make it in our industry.
 
Kate Wilson – Director of Operations, Hat Trick
 

 
The Pact Indie Diversity Scheme is where some of the most successful and creative Production companies collaboratively share best practice and offer a platform of bespoke training both on and off the job. Endemol Shine is proud to be able to participate and drive diversity and inclusion with its other indie partners and Pact.
