Helen Jones

Team Assistant/Production Runner

About me

My name is Helen Jones and I graduated in 2016 from the University of the Arts, London, after studying the degree BA (HONS) Live Events and Television Production. I am extremely proud to say I graduated with a First Class Honours Degree. Currently I am working as a Team Assistant at ShootMedia. Prior to this I completed two weeks of work experience on Couples Come Dine with Me at ITV. Before this I was a freelance Studio Runner at London Live News. They offered me a part-time position after I completed a two-week Work-Ex programme. Unfortunately, they were unable to offer me a more full time position. I am a committed team member, hard working, dedicated and super enthusiastic! I take pride in my ability to work extremely well within a team and execute tasks individually during stressful situations. I am very punctual and have a bubbly personality that can adapt to all kinds of environments.
