You will help artistes through the costume and makeup process and communicate the progress with your team. You will also escort cast to and from set, and ensure scripts, camera plans and call sheets are available.

We will look to you to ensure the studio floor and locations have clear access and egress and are kept tidy. You will work on location and in studio keeping your team members informed of any problems and changes throughout the day. Other tasks will include charging radios, providing refreshments for cast and crew and general housekeeping duties.

Our Floor Runner will have a can do attitude and an appreciation and passion for programme making in keeping with Coronation Street’s high production values. Excellent communication skills are a prerequisite as is your ability to deal with people of all levels. Due to the nature of the role you must be able to accept flexible working hours and work with absolute discretion and confidentiality.

You will have experience working in Television as a runner in a studio and location environment, and a proven interest in and passion for TV. You must have a high level of accuracy, be organised with excellent attention to detail and strong interpersonal skills able to liaise with production and non production staff.

Due to the nature of the role absolute confidentiality is required. These roles require a very flexible approach to work and working hours as you will be required for some out of hours working including some evenings & weekends, Coronation Street is not 9-5.
