Essential criteria are: previous experience in a broadcast engineering, support or broadcast IT role, a strong customer focus, a sound understanding of broadcast engineering fundamentals, great attention to detail, a basic understanding of electronics and of the administration of Windows and Linux operating systems and IP networking fundamentals.  Expertise in at least some areas of broadcast engineering or IT is necessary. Remaining calm and thinking clearly under pressure, logical and systematic approaches to problem solving, and clear communication and documentation skills are essential qualities.

Project management and install experience, mechanical ability, or advanced IT skills would also be viewed favourably.  It would be helpful to have production or TV operations experience.  Formal qualifications in electronics, engineering or IT would also be highly regarded.

This position involves rotational shiftwork, including night and weekend shifts according to operational requirements.  The work will involve manual handling of heavy or bulky equipment.
