Drive Forward: Monika’s time with Channel 3

Channel 3 is proud to be partnered with the Drive Forward Foundation, who provide young adults leaving foster or residential care with work placements to broaden their skills, knowledge and experience. Throughout the year, we are joined by young adults looking to gain professional work experience. Monika, 19, was the first to join us.

Here is what she had to say about her time with Channel 3: 

“I was lucky enough to join Channel 3 as work experience through their partnership with Drive Forward. 

Initially I was excited to start my week at Channel 3, however also slightly terrified as I had never worked in any type of office setting before! I expected to have to make teas and help with some photocopying, which I was more than prepared to do; at this point I was just glad to come across a work experience opportunity that wasn’t in retail!

The passion of everyone working at Channel 3 is genuinely palpable and their career journeys to get where they are now, inspiring

Upon my arrival I was pleasantly surprised when I was handed a whole week’s schedule of learning activities with numerous departments within Channel 3. My fears melted away as I was greeted by Sarah and Naomi who were incredibly friendly and welcoming and as I later came to find out, so was everyone in their office. 

Having completed this week, I have gained invaluable information about how a business works, from accessing the market to all the teams required to support a successful project. My eyes have been opened to whole range of career paths I had never considered before or even knew existed. The passion of everyone working at Channel 3 is genuinely palpable and their career journeys to get where they are now, inspiring. I feel like I have come away with a new zest for working hard and a drive to achieve my own career goals.”
