Our technical set-up is second to none and we are very proud that our work has been recognised with multiple high profile awards including ‘Best Post Production Facility’ at the Broadcast Awards in 2017.


The role

We now have an opportunity for an Senior Online MCR Assistant to join our hardworking and dedicated machine room team.


Our online department operates across eight Avid Symphony suites all connected via shared storage and can work at resolutions from HD up to 4K HDR and beyond.


On a day to day basis you will be responsible for supporting our Online Avid Symphony and Baselight suites. 


You will get the chance to work with experienced teams on large-scale multi-episodic productions, as well as fast turnaround ‘day of transmission’ style projects, and get hands on experience working in our suites.


You will gain valuable working knowledge of the latest workflows in the industry and the chance to progress in a forward thinking and fast paced organisation.

 

What are we looking for?


You will need to have demonstrable experience in the following:

To succeed in the role you will need outstanding client-facing skills, the ability to be flexible and calm in pressurised situations, be highly motivated, enthusiastic, organised, and a great team player!

 

Looking for career progression?

This role perfectly suites someone who is driven to progress into an Online Editor or Colourist role as you will have regular contact with the suites during your shift pattern.

 

As a company we are very keen for our staff to progress and many assistants have been promoted over the years to creative roles.
