Today we're happy to announce the launch of our new mobile app, which will allow you to complete your job hunting needs whilst on the move.

The app gives you access to our full list of jobs, which you can search through according to sector, salary and location.

You can also save your own specific parameters, and when a new role comes in which matches your requirements, you'll receive a push notification enabling you to be the first to see and apply for the role!

Unfortunately applying directly for roles is only possible on android at this time due to iOS restrictions, however those on iPhones have the option to email jobs to themselves in order to complete the application on desktop.

We know that life can be busy, and it's not always possible to dedicate time to job hunting, but we hope that this app will give you that extra level of convenience to make finding your dream media job that little bit easier!

To download the app just click on your app store link below!

The highly anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo was released in the US on Friday and took over £93.3m, which makes it the most successful animated film launch in US box office history. 


The film has also had the second most successful opening weekend of the year so far, with only Captain America: Civil War seeing greater success.

After a thirteen year wait, Ellen DeGeneres returned to provide the voicing for the titular character, along with director Andrew Stanton, and despite the long gap it appears interest in the story has remained high.

Finding Dory is set to be released in UK cinemas on July 29th.

As competitive computer game playing continues to grow in popularity, the UK is about to get its first 24-hour eSports channel.  

Ginx eSports TV is set to launch on Sky channel 470 on 23rd June, and will showcase the biggest eSports tournaments from around the world. Outside of the UK and Ireland, the channel will be distributed to 23 million households, meaning it will reach 37 million homes in total, making it the largest eSports channel in the world.

An indication of the rapid growth of the sport can be seen with a major upcoming event - the Counter-Strike Finals event is due to take place in Wembley Arena later this month. Elsewhere star players in the industry are today able to win salaries and prizes of up to £8.5 million.

Emma Lloyd, director of business development and strategic partnerships at Sky said of the arrangement:

“We look forward to working with Ginx and ITV on developing a channel which will capture the growing appetite for eSports.”

As the website HannaSeo suggests, despite its current status as more of 'an accessory to the traditional sports', eSports appears to be 'sitting on the edge of becoming recognized as true sport', and we're excited to see how this impacts the UK media in the near future.
