Coronation Street job vacancy: Sound Assistants

Sound Assistants, Coronation Street - 12 Months Fixed Term

ITV is the biggest commercial television network in the UK. Behind every famous ITV face, there are hundreds of others, all doing their bit to make things happen. Coronation Street is the world's longest-running TV Serial Drama currently in production, and our sound team is a big part of that!

We are looking for Sound Assistants to join our fast paced environment here at ITV Studios, to work alongside the Sound Crew to ensure the smooth acquisition of quality sound both in studio and on location.

Our Sound Assistants will be reactive, adaptable and organised, with a hands on approach, they will be strong team players and always prepared to go the extra mile. Previous background and experience of working in film and or television drama sound would be advantageous but not essential. A keen interest in Sound is key.

This role will involve relationship building with relevant departments to ensure the smooth running of all shoots. You will need to work within the budgetary and timescale limitations imposed by the production. In addition to this you will be responsible for assisting with rigging and de-rigging of sound equipment both in studio and on location.

You will report technical problems and ensure the appropriate use, storage and transportation of equipment. You will also assist in frontline maintenance and microphone allocation and placement, including radio microphones in collaboration with the Costume department.

Here on Coronation Street, we are a tight knit, established team and we are now looking for ideal candidates who work well in a collaborative and open working environment. So if you’ve got the skills and experience we’re looking for and you and thrive in a fast paced environment where no two days are the same, we’d love to hear from you.

This role is based in Manchester but travel will be required due to the location element of the role.

ITV is committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce and we strongly encourage applications from candidates from all backgrounds and as a Disability Confident employer we have committed to interview all candidates with a disability whose application meets the minimum criteria for the role.

Closing date: 11th October 2017
