Emmerdale is one of ITV’s most successful long running drama series, regularly pulling in viewing figures of over 7 million. We are currently looking for a Technical Assistant to provide support to our sound department.
As one of our Technical Assistants, you will provide first line technical support for our Sound Department and Production in acquiring the best possible sound whilst filming on location and in the studio.
You will have gained experience working with a wide range of technology including (for example) cables, microphones, Fisher booms, fishpoles and radio microphones and have a strong credit list, which includes drama production, to demonstrate this.
We will look to you to be flexible, reliable, punctual and organised, you must also be passionate about development and extending your knowledge. You will thrive in a fast paced environment and will be confident in liaising with various individuals and departments in a professional manner. Due to the nature of the role, you will be required to be flexible with regards to working hours – production days are long and this is a manual handling role. Driving duties are also part of this role.
Emmerdale is recorded both in a studio, working with Fisher booms and fishpoles in a multi-camera environment and out on location where you will be required to operate fishpoles during the recording of scenes. In addition you will have to drive a van between Base and Locations; rig and derig specialised sound equipment both before and after the shoot begins.
This is very much an entry level position into the Sound Department and we are looking for self-motivated individuals eager and ready to learn and pursue a career in Sound.
Our people are our greatest asset and, as an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds to work both in front of and behind the cameras.
