What's your new role about?

We are looking for an experienced individual to join our MCR team based in Bangor, Northern Ireland.  You will need to be able to work in a challenging environment ensuring our live operations are uninterrupted and run smoothly in line with the terms of our SLA’s. 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 the candidate to work days, nights, weekends and public holidays on a shift basis.  The ideal candidate will need to prove their ability to work in a busy broadcast environment.

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.

  • Complete routing and switching of events based on internal booking system 
  • Providing first line support for any issues that arise, following up with Suppliers to establish a RC 
  • Provide training and mentorship to junior team members

DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS?

  • Ability to work nights and weekends on a semi-regular basis. 
  • Considerable experience working in a Broadcast MCR
  • Ability to work as a member of a close-knit team. 
  • Knowledge of satellite delivery, decrypting and decoding
