About this shot

Endemol Shine UK is one of Britain’s largest independent production companies behind some of TV’s biggest hits.

We are looking for people who LOVE television and are capable of coming up with a broad range of new and exciting TV shows. We’re running BRIGHTBULB, a creative intern scheme designed to give some of the brightest and best a chance to get into non-scripted TV ideas development. Your job will be to come up with brilliant new format ideas for TV.


Our interns work in a fun, creative and diverse environment with excellent, experienced support to guide them through their first role in the TV industry... And NO specific qualifications or previous TV experience is necessary! You just need bags of enthusiasm, a LOVE of TV and lots of innovative, original ideas.

We have a huge catalogue of TV output including...

‘The Million Pound Drop’, ‘Pointless’, ‘Black Mirror’, ‘Would I Lie to You’, ‘Hunted’, ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’, ‘Idris vs Block’, ‘The Island’, ‘Soccer Aid’ and ‘MasterChef’... and more.

We believe great ideas can come from anywhere so we welcome applications from people of all ages, experience and social backgrounds.

About the internship...

  • This internship is a full-time, PAID, 12-week contract - The rate is £403 a week.
  • Successful candidates must have permission to work in the UK by the start of their employment, and be ready and willing to join our team at our offices in West London.
  • If you live outside the M25 and need to relocate to commute for the position there is a one off relocation bursary of up to £750 available to help you move.

Previous Brightbulb Alumni have said...

"I was genuinely surprised at how much responsibility we were given, and that after only a few months, our ideas were being pitched to major channel execs!"
"As a person with a disability I received all the support I needed to achieve my full potential, and they were incredibly proactive in doing so."
"Even if you never thought a career in TV was possible, if you have creative ideas, work hard, and love TV, you are exactly what they are looking for."


You don't need to have any specific qualifications, media training or any previous TV experience to do this job - but you do need bags of enthusiasm, a good brain and innovative, original ideas.

We want people who LOVE TV and are capable of coming up with a broad range of new and exciting ideas.

So, if you are passionate about TV, watch LOADS of it – and think you could come up with the next hit non-scripted TV format, then we would love to hear from you.
