What's your new role about?

So, you’ve got an interest in working with broadcasting, perhaps already got some experience within Transmission under your belt but in an industry you struggle to get excited about.  Now you want a change, you want a new challenge in an industry you care about and somewhere you can sit and think ‘am I really getting paid to do this?!’
 
Here’s your chance to turn this into a reality! DAZN (pronounced Da-Zone) are a major sports broadcaster, with some of the most exciting streaming rights across the world! We’ve just won some major contracts, including the Serie A, Matchroom Boxing, extending our Bundesliga rights.  Not to mention that we’re changing the face of the Women’s Champions League by partnering with the giants that are YouTube to make it free to watch across the world!
 
This is a rare opportunity to work with something you genuinely count as a hobby.
 
Not to be biased, but the team we have built are probably one of the best in the world. They seamlessly transmit some of the most exciting events in the world of sport to our subscribers and they do it superbly.  As part of this team, you’ll be supported in your development by some amazing Senior Controllers and Team Leaders, you’ll be given all the tools to succeed, and you’ll be able to build your career the way that you want to – at your own pace.
 
Come and be involved in changing the way people consume sports! 

As our new Live Director, you’ll have to opportunity to:

  • Execute scheduled live events to ensure exact content is broadcast at the correct time
  • Monitor and quality control all signals in and out of transmission
  • Load, prepare and transmit playout schedules
  • Ensure all scheduled media is available for playout each day and communication with the relevant channels if anything is missing/incorrect (e.g. graphics or production)
  • Provide support of all Transmission services and equipment
  • Pre-empt all possible faults and a resolution plan ready to minimise ‘on-air’ impact

You’ll be set up for success if you have:

  • Solid experience working in transmission
  • Experience working in a live sports environment
  • Operational and technical experience with broadcast automation systems 

Even better if you have:

  • A genuine passion for sport! (This isn’t essential, just helps)
