You’ll be part of a bigger team reporting to the Broadcast Engineering Service Manager in London. You’ll need to be prepared to participate in the seven days a week operational rota as required. You’ll work as part of the team in resource planning to ensure that all work is carried out with maximum positive impact to the business.
What you will be doing
Every day will be different, from mending studios to training presenters, planning outside broadcasts and installing new equipment. You will be maintaining the broadcast studios and equipment as well as problem solving around the building
Using your Electronics or IT qualifications you will help to integrate new systems and maybe even develop solutions to problems we didn’t even know we had. You will be excellent at communicating with our people and logging problems & solutions in our helpdesk systems. You will be the go-to person when someone asks how-do-I?

What we expect of you
You’ll be crazy for a career in radio, you’ll love finding solutions to problems and you’ll have the drive and determination to get the job done.
To you a problem is a challenge and an opportunity. You’ll know when to play by the rules and when to think outside the box.
You’ll need to be a great team player and able to say it how it is. At times you will have to work without your manager or team right beside you so you’ll need to have the hunger to succeed on your own when required.
You’ll need to be flexible and able to do two things at once. You’ll be managing expectations to build trust and loyalty with those you work with, both inside and outside the business. You’ll have the courage to listen and heed the advice of those around you.
