Technical Operator Pool (Inverness)

Job Introduction

We are looking to add to our freelance pool of technical operators in Inverness. The Technical Operators are core to supporting our production and newsgathering teams for BBC Naidheachdan.  We have now moved our TV news gallery from Glasgow to Inverness and expanded our output to include a weekend news service. We need to enhance the freelance pool to help support our existing team at peak periods.

Our flagship TV programme, An Là covers local, national and international news for BBC ALBA. As well as regular bulletins throughout the day on Radio nan Gaidheal, we produce a morning and evening drive-time show, Aithris na Maidne and Aithris an Fheasgair.

Main Responsibilities

Your remit may include, but no be limited to: straightforward lighting, technical operation, camera operations, radio, online and general newsgathering support. You will support your colleagues when required, particularly the more senior members of the technical operations team.

Are you the right candidate?

We don’t expect the successful candidates to necessarily have experience of working as a technical operator in a live broadcast environment. However you will have an aptitude for technical operations – be confident in operating and reacting to problems with kit, software and equipment.

This role involves a large degree of flexibility and resilience which will come as second nature to you. As you will be working closely with the news production team, you will be able to communicate clearly and assertively and respect demands of working in a fast-moving environment. Ideally you will be a fluent Gaelic speaker although we will consider candidates without the language skills.
