Seeking Encoding Assistant / all-rounder type with the desire to progress to become an online editor. ASAP start x 12 month contract.
You will be thrown all sorts to begin with, starting in the machine room dealing with tape decks, dvd duplicators, encoding procedures, edit assisting, offline suite prep (hardware and avid licensing). There is also camera equipment management, rentals and invoicing so some Excel experience is very handy. You will even be involved in building security and purchasing of new equipment.
Our current junior online assist started in this role also and moved fairly quickly out of the machine room and in to his own suite. He is almost fully onlining programs by himself.
This role requires someone who is very calm under pressure, very good people skills (you will be in contact with every person in-house at some stage) and has some knowledge of computers, especially codecs.
