As a Junior Broadcast Engineer, you will be based in the Middle East and provide technology support across a variety of locations in the UAE, so the ability to travel for short notice trips is essential. Working in a varied role, you will provide technical routine maintenance and support to radio studios, transmission systems and IP/Streaming services as well as setting up satellite dishes on location. You will also be responsible for creating technical documentation to track repairs and provide suppliers with instructions and asset registers, so excellent administrative skills are essential.
This role would suit candidates who have recently completed a HND / Degree / or equivalent in a video or audio related technical engineering subject and gained some commercial experience either working as a Technician or Engineer for a radio station or in a broadcast studio environment.

This is a standalone position, therefore candidates must be willing to relocate to the Middle East alone and undergo full UK security clearance.
This is a fantastic opportunity to kick-start your career within the broadcast industry and earn a tax-free salary for 18 months. Accommodation and food will be provided along with two flights home a year.
