Over time you’ll be helping with basic edit preparations, media transcoding and logging. We will also be working through the archive looking for stock shots and showreel material.

You will be based in the Post Production department but may from time to time be needed on set in the studios, or on location with a shoot. As such, though usually, you’ll be working regular office hours, there will be some flexibility needed to cater to specific shoots and projects.

  5. 1-hour DIT (Digital Image Technician)
  6. 1-hour Logging

Working hours are 9 am to 6 pm, Monday-Friday. Salary is £10,000-15,000 depending on experience.

Requirements and Prospects

Three A-Levels at grades A*-C (or 240 UCAS points) are preferred. You will also have good knowledge of IT, including all Microsoft packages, Google doc/sheets

  2. Accurate and calm under pressure with an eye for detail
  3. Ability to work to tight deadlines, and flexibility to cope with changing priorities
  4. Proven experience with computers, both Mac and PC
  5. A demonstrable passion for film

Personal Qualities

Dedicated, with the ability to use initiative and to work autonomously. Diligent, well-organised, a ‘can do’ attitude, excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
