First of all, please be aware that we only take on interns and cover runners who have left full time education.   This is so that if people show potential we can carry them forward to the next stage in their career without them having to return to college or university.  All work is paid at the London Living Wage.  We do NOT take unpaid work experience at RDF; please see our short section on “Work Experience” which explains our policy in more detail.

RDF Internship and Cover Runners

We are currently revising out prestigious internship.

RDF has moved offices and to reflect now sharing a building with other major labels within the Banijay Group, we are rethinking how we can give opportunities to new entrants.

We are optimistic that by the autumn when staff will have returned to working in the office, we will be able to resume internships.

In the meantime, please do continue to send your CVs to the address below, as there may be ad hoc runners needed over the next few months (paid at London Living Wage) as production increases.

If you are a new entrant and wish to apply to RDF Television please send your details to

We do try and meet as many people as possible for an informal chat with a view to future employment.  After meeting you, we enter your details on the RDF Talent Database. There are new Data Protection laws which mean that Banijay have to follow certain guidelines regarding retaining any personal details.  PLEASE DO READ THE BELOW

We can no longer assume that anyone who sends their CV in is happy for us to retain it, so that the following simple declaration at the top of your CV would be very helpful to all parties!

 I consent to you keeping my details on file and distributing for employment purposes.

The RDF Talent Database has no external access.  We enter information about your availability and a record of when we met you, and with your permission, your current rate.  We can attach your CV and photograph to your page (which we take at an interview, with your permission).  Internally the Talent Database can only be viewed on a permission basis by members of the Talent Team and therefore all personal details are securely held.  

When you kindly send your CVs to RDF speculatively or for a specific position which we’ve advertised, we keep them on file and replace them if you send an updated CV.  Having said that, if you would like to withdraw your details, please email and we will remove you from our system straight away.
