Channel 4’s Managing Director, Nations and Regions, Sinead Rocks, said: “These are really exciting times for Channel 4 as we start to lay the foundations for our new operation in Leeds.
“Many people might never have considered a career in broadcasting but our National HQ in the heart of the city centre means there are lots of fantastic opportunities for people to come and work for Channel 4 across a range of disciplines such as data science, finance, legal and technology.
“We’ve already been busy recruiting and there’ll be lots more jobs coming up over the next few months so I’d urge anyone interested in working for Channel 4 to sign up to our careers website to be notified of all future opportunities.”
