A day in the life of a Factual Department Coordinator in the United Kingdom
What I do
I help organise our department - from keeping track of what archive footage we use, to organising shoots. I also get the chance to be involved in research and development of TV programmes
Skills I use and how I developed them
I did a postgraduate diploma in Broadcast Journalism
I can manage my own time well, and am more capable of writing coherent reports and important letters.
I definitely improved my social skills and independence through living so far from home and being out of my comfort zone.
What I like most
Being able to come up with ideas for documentaries, and feeling that those ideas are valued.
What I like least
What would I change? I would like to have more hands-on experience on shoots.
Where I hope to be in 5 years
I would like to be a successful television producer, and make award winning documentaries.
My advice to students considering work
Make the most of your freedom while you have it - use your long holidays to travel or get valid work experience.
