  • As a Senior Planner with DAZN you will be responsible for the management of the content powering our next-generation streaming video product and our commercial and residential linear channels; setting the bar for what consumers expect across web, TV and mobile platforms from around the world.
  • You will be talented and diligent with a an eye for detail and strong organisational skills. You will have experience of scheduling for broadcast in either a linear or non-linear environment.

  • You also should be able to deal with performance data and work with the teams to prepare analysis and performance reporting.
  • You will communicate with and help to manage which events we schedule onto our platform, working with Marketing, Commercial, Production and Operational teams to ensure that all factors relating to our broadcast output are considered and play a pivotal role in determining what content is played out to our subscriber base.

  • Cool under pressure and able to handle multiple tasks quickly and accurately
  • Capable of interpreting programme and event data and understanding viewing trends
  • Ability to work both as part of a team as well as take individual responsibility and work remotely                                                     

NOT ESSENTIAL BUT GREAT IF YOU ALSO HAVE
