Yes! Before you fire off your application you might like to take a look at our helpful checklist below…
• Read the full job advert, job description and person specification thoroughly and carefully before applying.
• Make sure that you meet at the very least the minimum level of skills and experience we require for a role – if you don’t, we won’t be able to consider you as competition is fierce and the very highest standards are expected at TwentyThree Studios.
• Ensure that you send us what we ask for in the advert, e.g. if the advert asks you to submit a showreel in a specific format accompanied by a shot breakdown, please send it!
• Keep your information brief and to the point, think about using bullet points to help keep things concise – you’ll need to use real, demonstrable examples of your achievements.
• Check carefully the material you submit for spelling and grammar.
• Prove to us that you are motivated and know your subject – simply telling us you’re enthusiastic won’t be enough! Carry out research where necessary to expand and update your knowledge – use the internet, industry publications, watch TV and films, etc.
• Be honest about yourself and what you can bring to the company.
• Be patient please! We try to get back to every applicant in a timely manner, however, due to the huge numbers of applications we receive, and sometimes as a result of changing production schedules, it can take a while to complete the shortlisting process.
• Apply if you don’t meet our minimum required levels of skills and experience.
• Apply for the same job more than once.
• Apply for more than one job using the same CV Coversheet or Application Form – you need to show that your skills and experience match the specific requirements of each advertised role.
• Send a huge and elaborate CV with lots of waffle – instead keep it simple, concise, factual and think about clear but interesting presentation.
• Rely on the spell-checker alone – attention to detail is important.
• Make things up to impress us as you’ll need to be able to prove you can do what you say you can.
• Ask us for feedback on your application if you’re not invited for interview – due to the volume of applications we receive, sadly we just don’t have the time to be able to provide constructive feedback for every unsuccessful application.
• Apply if you are not already eligible to live and work in the UK, unless an advertisement specifically states otherwise, as we won’t be able to consider your application. It is only possible for us to apply for work permits if there are no suitable applicants in the UK or nationals of the EU, go to www.ind.homeoffice.gov.uk for further information and the latest on new member states and eligibility.
