Diversity in TV and the media is a top priority for us at Channel 4. A key part of our remit is to appeal to people whatever their culture, nationality, religious persuasion, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, gender, race or age.

In 2015, Channel 4 set out a major commitment to leadership in diversity at every level of the organisation. The 360° Charter puts diversity at the heart of all decision making at Channel 4, across all activities on and off-screen, at every level and with all external partners and independent producers. It includes 30 significant activities worth £5m of investment and covers a wide definition of diversity including BAME, disability, LGBT, gender and social mobility.

At Channel 4, we believe that everyone should have the same chances to get ahead in the media industry. Currently there are not enough people with disabilities working in front of the camera, behind the camera and within broadcasters like Channel 4.  If you have a disability that prevents you from completing an online application process please email us at recruitment@channel4.co.uk or call on 0207 3068195 to discuss what support can be provided to you.
If you are invited to interview we’ll ask you about any adjustments you may need, and if you are offered a role with us we’ll will talk to you about any reasonable adjustments required to create a working environment where you’ll be supported to perform at your best.


What we do as a broadcaster is guided by our unique public service remit. So it makes sense that this also influences how we work as a business and behave as an employer. In short, we are who we are because of what we do and how we do it. This is the essence of our culture. But we’re also who we are because it makes sense.
We are inclusive; not simply because we exist to reflect the rich diversity in our country but because we celebrate individuality and understand that ideas can come from anywhere or anyone. So inviting people in gives us the endless supply of energy, ideas, passion and perspectives that drive us. This feeds our ability to be creative. And if we’re anything, we’re a powerhouse of originality, innovation and imagination.
For creativity to flourish, it needs to be nurtured. So we make sure new talent has every chance to realise its potential and existing talent has what it needs to thrive. It also requires us to be open-minded and open to new ideas; to embrace new ways of working and adopt new technologies.
It’s our purpose to educate and inspire change, so we have the curiosity to explore the possibilities. It’s our purpose to deliver quality, so we collaborate – because we also know that no-one knows it all. It’s our purpose to champion the alternative, so we stand apart from the mainstream and find value in the leftfield.
We’re unique because this is what our purpose dictates. So come as you are but be ready to be different. Because we’re all here to make a change for the better.
