What's your new role about?

Want to be part of the exciting live action on DAZN's 24/7 global sports streaming platform? Then join the Bangor MCR Team at DAZN!
 
As MCR Operator, you will work in a fast-paced live sports environment ensuring our live operations are uninterrupted and run smoothly. Our work is mission critical; we are on the front line of the company’s global content ingest, pulling in sporting content from across the globe for use on multiple platforms. Our schedules follow global sport calendars, so this position requires working days, nights, weekends and public holidays on a shift basis along with the sports calendar. 
 
You will be responsible for the day to day running of the MCR.  You will keep everything running smoothly and assist the more junior members of staff when needed.  You will train others in the team, so you will be expected to understand the workflows to a higher level than most.  Double checking routing and incident reports are par for the course and the ability to keep a cool head when incidents inevitably occur is a necessity. 
 
You will join a close-knit team that values the desire to learn over previous experience (though both are ideal).  We are also proud that despite the workload, we try and keep a relatively relaxed atmosphere in the MCR.  There’s always someone at the kettle, ensuring you’re kept well hydrated during a busy yet fun filled shift in the MCR! 
 
If the above seems like a good fit – we’d love to meet you for an interview. 
 
Benefits include access to DAZN, 25 days’ annual leave (increasing by 3 days after 3 years), private medical insurance, life assurance, pension contributions up to 5%, family friendly community, free access for you and one other to our workplace mental health platform app (Unmind), learning and development resources and access to our internal speaker series and events.

As our new (insert job title), you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Use the latest technology to acquire Satellite / IP content
  • Support events during a live broadcast environment
  • Tailor feeds to meet production requirements
  • Consider service uptime as high priority
  • Communicate issues to suppliers and internal teams

You'll have:

  • Attention to detail
  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Ability to work under pressure
  • Previous experience in a broadcast environment (preferred but not required)
