Former Media Studies learner James Radford is revelling in his first job with a creative agency. He has secured a role as a Production Assistant with Derby based Matchstick Design.
His main responsibility is to help ensure smooth work flow in the studio – taking briefs, dealing with suppliers and seeing jobs through to delivery. He’s also preparing images for use in wide ranging projects and assisting with research.
With further experience, he aims to take on a more senior role on the creative side of the business.
It’s my first job and I’m sure my time at Derby College helped me to get it. My studies gave me skills, confidence and knowledge of film, which helped a lot.
I would definitely recommend the Media Studies course to other people interested in a career in the creative industry. It was the right choice for me: the standard of teaching was good and we covered the subjects I’m most interested in.
