MG ALBA named as a Best Place to Work in TV

3 February 2020

MG ALBA is yet again one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ in television, according to one of the industry’s leading publications.

For a fifth consecutive year, Broadcast Magazine has named the key partner behind BBC ALBA as one of the top TV companies across the UK.

Committed to identifying and recognising the best employers in TV, Broadcast assesses companies on everything from leadership and planning to corporate culture, work environment, training and salaries.

MG ALBA has appeared on the list every year since inception in 2016, sharing that honour only with London-based production companies Shine TV and Dragonfly TV.

Firmly established as an industry leader, MG ALBA, the Gaelic broadcast service, employs almost 40 staff across sites in Stornoway, Glasgow and Inverness.

Primarily known as the partner organisation behind the Gaelic language service BBC ALBA, the organisation is also a key partner in LearnGaelic, a comprehensive online resource for the language, and FilmG, an annual Gaelic short film competition which this year attracted record entries.

The Broadcast magazine shortlist is compiled through independent research, with senior management and staff members at companies across the UK asked to give their views about their own organisation and its culture.

MG ALBA Chief Executive Donald Campbell says:

“MG ALBA is again recognised as an example of good practice in the media industry in both Scotland and the UK as a whole. Our commitment to staff wellbeing as well as to our audiences and communities creates great sense of togetherness and a culture that promotes creativity and talent.

“Gaelic media makes a big economic impact in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland in particular and creates hugely aspirational jobs. I’m so proud that MG ALBA has yet again been listed as one of the best places to work in TV and we will continue to work hard work to secure investment into Gaelic media and to serve our audiences.”
