10 Websites Presenters Should Know About

There are two questions that we get asked a lot from presenters; “Where do I get Presenter Jobs?” and “Where do I find presenter castings?”. This can be challenging especially if you’re a new presenter with limited or no experience, credits, or an agent. It’s a bit of a catch-22 situation, the more experience you have, the easier it tends to be to get more work. You will need some form of footage so a producer or casting professional can see what you look like on camera, either a presenter showreel or a YouTube channel to get an audition. The most successful presenters who get regular work know where to look for opportunities, they know how to build strong relationships and are always making new connections. They’re constantly absorbing themselves in the industry and know everything that’s going on.

So here is 10 websites that every presenter should know about.

1. Star Now

Star Now is a casting website that’s open to anyone interested in a career as ‘talent’ which includes singers, models, extras, influencers as well as actors and presenters. The platform now has its dedicated section for presenter work and is ideal if you’re just starting out, looking to gain experience, credits, and build a showreel. It’s free to join, set up your casting profile and view jobs, but there is a membership fee to pay to apply for any of the jobs.

2. Presenter Promotions

A solely presenter casting website that has been around since 1990. Job listings include TV Presenters, Radio Presenters, Broadcasters, Journalists, Voice Over Artists, and on-screen experts. A great casting website if you already have a presenter showreel and some presenting credits.

3. Mandy

Another casting website, at present, doesn’t have a dedicated section for presenters, but presenter jobs do come up often. Work tends to be more corporate, explainer, and educational videos but a great platform if you already have a presenter showreel or some experience. Casting websites are great source for “jobbing presenters“.

4. The Talent Manager 

Not only is this a great website for creating an online profile, but it also lists a lot of jobs within all areas of the TV industry. The Talent Manager is great for making connections and if you’re looking for a particular contact in the industry or to find out who’s works or a particular production eg: who is the producer for a show, this is a great place to start.

5. The Children’s Media Conference 

This annual event is a must for anyone who is looking to make any contact for children. This website provides a unique resource for the Children’s media industry. You can also be part of the event and volunteer. A great way to meet new industry people.

6. Media Production Show

A must-attend event for anyone working in TV or Broadcast. Plenty of exhibitors and talks held by industry experts. Always a fantastic opportunity to network and build connections at this annual event.

7. Channel 4 Skills Talent Scheme 

This website contains more details on 4Skills apprentices, Talent and Training Schemes which they run alongside their independent production companies that make their programmes.

8. BFI Young Audiences Content Fund. 

The fund backs the development and production of programmes for free-to-access, regulated television and online platforms that have public service broadcasting values in live-action and animation. The BFI is looking for content that entertains, informs, and reflects the experiences of children and young people growing up in the UK today. So, if you’re already creating content for young audiences or have an idea make sure you check this website out.

9. BBC Commissioning

Looking to get an idea or show commissioned by the BBC? Check the commissioning section on the BBC’s website where there is lots of information on how to pitch ideas, what they’re looking for along with who the correct person/department to get in touch with.


10. Wonder Woman TV 

Wonder Women TV is an inspirational digital talk show and Podcast that champions the phenomenal women who work in the Creative industries set up by TV Presenter Ria Hebden (ITV’s Lorraine, All Around Britain BBC Sunday Live). Ria was a guest on one of our live webinars last year. Look out for Wonder Woman Live which is the annual event that celebrates International Women’s Day. Another unmissable event.
