Job Details

We have an exciting and unique opportunity for an experienced Production Director to join our client based in the Middle East on an initial 12-month fixed-term contract, to write, develop, direct and produce a wide array of broadcast, commercial and corporate media production projects.

As the Production Director, you will collaborate closely with clients in this highly customer-facing role, and will direct and supervise non-scripted, multi-camera assignments (live events, campaigns, remote productions) throughout all production and post-production stages, from initial production planning and scheduling to final programme sign-off and delivery.

You will manage production staff, support the personal development of junior members of the team and communicate project goals clearly across the division to ensure both client expectations and delivery deadlines are met.

Candidates will have extensive experience of video production management, along with a proven track record of producing and directing high profile corporate communication and commercial productions and working successfully with a range of internal and external stakeholders.

You will be adept in writing scripts and treatments, recruiting, managing and developing single and multi-camera production teams, sourcing talent, conducting health & safety assessments and taking leadership in often difficult and remote conditions, in line with local customs and laws.

Applicants must be familiar with OB and mobile production equipment, the latest professional cameras, video file formats and production techniques. You will also possess a full understanding of post-production processes, workflows, non-linear editing systems and copyright clearance procedures.

Exceptional communication, organisation and team management skills will be key, along with the ability to accept constructive criticism and liaise with all levels of the business.

Any additional production experience within the GCC region would be highly advantageous.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a major player in the market, offering a very generous salary package including visa sponsorship, insurance card, holiday entitlement and annual return flight ticket.
