My name is Megan Evans and I am an extremely rigorous and dedicated individual, with experience in casting, edit support and fact-checking, with work on small teams and big productions. Credits as a Junior Researcher, Runner and a Logger on factual, factual entertainment and documentary programmes including 'Dispatches' (Ch4), 'Hunted' (Ch4), 'Mary Berry Series 4' and more. Experience as an Office Runner for scripted drama company Red Production Company.

I have recently returned from Australia, where I spent a year working and travelling the beautiful country independently. This experience taught me many life skills. I graduated from Newcastle University with a first-class honours in Media, Communications and Cultural Studies, in 2015. Previous work experience at television production companies: True North, Shine TV, Sidney Street, Title Role Television Productions, TwoFour Broadcast, Red Production Company and Nine Lives Media. I made a great impression within these companies and can provide a testimonial from each. True North actually asked me back twice to act as a Junior Casting Researcher for the first series of Channel Four's 'A New Life in the Sun' and as a Junior Researcher for 'Dispatches'.

Along with my time spent at indie television production companies, previous work experience in customer service, sales, call centres, admin environments has helped me to work well under pressure, work to deadlines, exceed targets and communicate extremely effectively over the telephone, through email and face-to-face interactions.

I am available and able to work early mornings and late nights. I can start immediately and can drive.

I am extremely keen to gain more experience in the television industry, and when I am set a task (or a project) I will commit to this 100% and see it through to the end. I am not afraid to get stuck into a project which challenges me.

I am looking for jobs in London or the North (Manchester, Leeds, rest of Yorkshire). Read Less

It’s very unusual for True North to take someone for more than one work placement. But, after a successful first placement, Megan was very keen to come back and, in doing so, she proved herself to be both determined and diligent with a quiet confidence and conscientious approach to her work. Megan has taken a number of steps, through her own initiative, to progress a career in the media and I am sure she will be successful.
