Senior Producer and co-founder of Amplify Pictures
"I would endorse job-sharing in Edit Producing, because in an Edit, you get very ‘wood for the trees’ you get lost in the detail and yet you really need to be able to take a step back and take a fresh look and think, “hmm is this story working? Should actually that character be in a different programme?” Those really Big Picture questions. They (the job-sharing Edit Producers) were able to do that because each one was able to step away for a day or two.
One of the biggest problems we have is that we lose a huge number of women when they become mothers. Really talented, extraordinary, editorial women and job-sharing seems to me to be the obvious solution because there are not many part-time roles."
