Fantastic news for mentee Ajai Singh, who has started as a junior journalist apprentice at ITV Granada. Ajai had been working as a teaching assistant as he looked for his big break into the industry.
He writes, ‘This is my first professional role in journalism and I am very excited about being in the midst of Granada’s formidable legacy of journalism.
‘The John Schofield Trust supported me in gaining this opportunity by connecting me with former mentees who have worked for ITV Granada. My brilliant mentor Richard Vadon also helped me refine my answers for my interview.
‘The Trust’s support has been incredibly invaluable in me gaining this wonderful opportunity.’
