We have a fantastic opportunity for a Live Ingest Operator to join a major sports broadcast organisation based in London on a permanent basis.

As a Live Ingest Operator, you will be responsible for successfully ingesting and delivering file-based content whilst adhering to specific guidelines.

Your duties will include QC'ing files prior to transmission and ingesting live content, whilst ensuring that it has been captured correctly on time and all metadata is accurate. You will also be responsible for archiving content within the MAM system and ensuring any issues that arise are escalated to the relevant technical teams efficiently.

To be considered for this role, applicants must have experience of ingesting or quality checking video content, with a good understanding of media management, transcoding or encoding technologies.

A good knowledge of video and audio file formats and codecs is essential. It would also be highly advantageous if you have worked within a live broadcast environment with experience of working with EVS IP Director, however training will be provided.

You must have a flexible work approach as this role will be working in a 24/7 broadcast environment, therefore you must be willing to work 12-hour shifts, covering weekends, evenings and nights.

This is an excellent opportunity to work in a very fast-paced environment for a leading sports broadcast organisation, with the opportunity to grow your skill set and career.

Please note, only applicants who are already fully eligible to live and work in the UK without the need for visa sponsorship can be considered.
