Job Details

We are currently working with a leading outside broadcast company that is looking to recruit a Head of Sound to join its dynamic team, based in the North of England, on a permanent basis.

As the Head of Sound you will take ultimate responsibility for the sound department and its staff whilst both at base and on-site at outside broadcasts. You will oversee the sound department and act as Sound Supervisor on outside broadcast events as and when required.

Applicants must show good knowledge of sound operations and be able to perform tasks of Sound Guarantee on OBs, understanding various sound and talkback systems, following-up on faults and repairs across all sound equipment. You will work closely with all OB departments to ensure high standards are met, consulting with Unit Managers to ensure technical specifications are correct ahead of events.

To be considered for this role, applicants must be educated to HND level or equivalent in a relevant technical discipline and have a strong background working as a Sound Engineer in an outside broadcast environment.

If you feel this is the right role for you and if you are fully eligible to live and work in the UK without restrictions, then please apply now for immediate consideration.
