TV Runner CV Course

It’s tough getting your foot in the door.

How do you get a job in Film or Television, when you haven't had a job in Film or Television?

Getting rejected - or worse, not even hearing back - is demoralising, especially when you're trying to make a good impression but don't have much experience.

The TV Runner CV Course gives new entrants to the creative industries the tools to get their CV right for entry level positions.

    It gave me confidence that the CVs and covering letters I send out were at least on the right track and I wasn't wasting my time.

    This is a very valuable tool for freelancers in the creative industry, and for sure it will be of help for anyone else who wants to write his own CV regardless the job he/she is applying for.

    My CV is now good looking, well organised, and I feel more confident in applying for jobs. Thank you Gavin!


    Workshop Attendee

    This course offers practical tips and advice on how to write a CV for the media industry.

    Gavin provides the point of view of employers on reading CVs. Thanks to this course, I have re-written my CV from scratch, in a more effective and stylish way.



    This course made me view my CV and how I sold my skills in a completely different light.

    My previous CV was awful in comparison to my current one, following Clearly Creative CVs I wrote a new one from scratch.

    J Watkinson

    Workshop Attendee

     This course helped me to completely re-write my CV into an organised creative format.

    It's mostly focused around jobs in the television industry, but I found it also applied to freelance writing.

     It was however a massive help, and I'd recommend it to any beginner or established professional.



    Very insightful with lots of useful information, some major and some subtle (I really liked the psychology behind how you name the CV file).

    As someone who has never had to write this type of CV before this was incredibly helpful and, hopefully, has saved me from a lot of unnecessary rejections. Thanks!
