Gemma Burman – Media Officer



My name is Gemma, I attended Big Wood School in Nottingham before going to NCN Clarendon College where I studied A Levels in Psychology, Sociology and Communication Studies. I then went on to study Film and Television at Aberystwyth University in Wales. Whilst in my third year at Uni I started working at the BBC in London as a Runner, after graduating I started my first Full Time role as a Production Runner on Rogue Traders, followed by many more shows including Strictly Come Dancing it Takes Two and Series 1 of Miranda. I then became an Assistant Director in their Drama Department, working on programmes including EastEnders, Doctors in Birmingham and The Sarah Jane Adventures in Cardiff. I left the TV industry after 4 years due to health reasons and retrained as a Disability Support Worker, working with young people in Nottingham living with a range of physical restrictions, illnesses and SEN. Although sometimes challenging I really enjoyed this job and working with and seeing the young people develop. I miss them all. I joined the FITC team as their first Media Officer in June 2012, I am charged with generating press, producing marketing material, pictures and media content, administrating the charities website and social media networking sites, writing our community articles for the Clubs Mag, and co-ordinating Team Magpies, the Clubs Junior Supporters Club.
