Trainee Finder Alumni

I have been working in the Costume Department of the Film, Television and Theatre industry for past 4 years since leaving univeristy. I have had support from Screenskills throughout my career after being accepted onto the 'Trainee Finder' and 'Make a Move' programme. I have progressed from Trainee to Assistant and my most current roles have been as 'Assistant Costume Designer' and 'Costume Standby'.

The great thing about working in costume is that every job is different and every day on a job is different. Working with great costume teams and great talent feels like a wonderful priviledge and I enjoy the challenges that each job brings.
