Broadcast and media systems technical operator

Support the delivery of broadcast and communication services

A broadcast and media systems technical operator supports the delivery of broadcast and communication services, which could be television or radio programmes, podcasts, internet streaming services, pay-per-view or downloadable content. You’ll work within a team providing support to both production crew and broadcast and media systems technicians and engineers, to ensure studio and web broadcast services and transmissions are consistently maintained without impact to live broadcasts. Your workplace could be located in a broadcast or operations centre, as part of TV or radio studio operations, or on an outside broadcast operation, at customer premises, or outdoors on transmission sites. You’ll need to ensure that working environments and areas are safe from hazards and that specific risks are identified and reported, and that the required equipment is safe to use both onsite and offsite.
