ITV Job Vacancy: Runners wanted at Coronation Street

This just in from ITV.

We have an amazing opportunity to join our team of Runners at Coronation Street.

The role of Runner is an entry-level position within the TV industry but it’s an important role to fill. As our Runner you will be expected to support our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Assistant Directors, help artistes through the costume and make up process and communicate the progress with your team ensuring scripts, camera plans and call sheets are available. You will work on the studio floor and locations and ensure there is clear access and egress and areas are kept tidy.

The overall responsibility of Runners is to complete whatever task is assigned to them as quickly and as efficiently as possible.  As even small details may cause interruptions or delays to filming, all their duties must be carried out rapidly, so that the shoot can progress smoothly.

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. In this fast paced role, 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 and be able to work with talk back.

To join our team you will need experience and credits working as a Runner in Continuing Drama with a proven interest in and passion for TV. You must have a high level of accuracy, be organised with excellent attention to detail and have working knowledge of production schedules. You must have strong interpersonal skills and be 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.

If you have the skills that we need, then apply by the 12th Jan 2020.  If you are selected you must be available to attend an assessment day in Manchester the week commencing 20th January 2020.

Closing date for applications: Sunday 12th January 2020.
