Main Purpose of the Role

Ffilm Cymru is seeking a freelance Project Co-ordinator to manage the logistics and administration for a training course offering mental health awareness and follow up support that producers and Heads of Departments (HoDs) working in the film and television industries undertake with a mental health expert.

The course is co-financed by ScreenSkills and Ffilm Cymru through their BFI NETWORK Wales initiative. The Project Co-Ordinator will report to the BFI NETWORK Wales Manager in co-ordinating the promotion, delivery and data-gathering relating to the course.

The course will take place in Cardiff, delivered in English with Welsh translation available on request and will be marketed to targeted participants across Wales through Ffilm Cymru and relevant stakeholders and partners. An initial free introductory event themed around Wellbeing, Resilience & Anti-Bullying and Harassment within the screen industries is scheduled in partnership with BAFTA towards the end of November.

The core training programme of two days will host 20 participants and is anticipated for early December 2019. Potential participants will be asked to submit an expression of interest to attend, which will be assessed by the Project Coordinator based on need. There will be a cost to attend, with bursary support available to those who face demonstrable need for financial assistance towards travel, childcare or course fees.

Following the core training, participants will have the opportunity to follow up with the designated course leader via a one-to-one session.
