Audio Studio Manager/ Editor/ Sound Designer (freelance)

Tuesday, 20 October 2020, 5.00pm

BBC Studios is seeking experienced freelance audio studio managers, audio editors and audio sound designers to be part of a pool providing services for BBC Studios Audio.

We make all types of formats that include sitcom, sketch, panel, chat, drama and stand-up. Some shows have complex recording and editing requirements with large casts, sound effects and music, others are simpler and just require high quality recording of a single voice with or without an audience.

We are looking for talented technical operators who can demonstrate their level of competency and skill on audio and radio productions. We are interested in hearing from people at the start of their sound career with maybe 2 or 3 credits as well as highly experienced practitioners with many years of experience.

Please limit any audio examples to a maximum of three minutes in duration for each clip.

Role Responsibility:

The roles of freelance audio studio managers, audio editors and audio sound designers are integral to our output, as you will work with producers on the editing, recording and sound design of productions, helping us to deliver our shows to a high professional standard.

Duties will include the recording and/or editing of shows, and working with producers and production coordinators in a highly collaborative and creative way to capture audio both in studio, on location and remotely (ie you and the producers and cast will all be in different locations and you use a software such as Clean Feed).

The successful candidate must be able to coordinate and deliver quality audio working to deadlines and an audio spec, whilst being able to respond flexibly and constructively to feedback and changes.

Are you the right candidate?
Skills required:
– Flexibility and adaptability
– Technical competence
– Access to and ability to use Pro Tools for editing, with own kit
– Good working knowledge of audio and podcast production techniques
– Collaborative and open to feedback
– Understanding of the production process and your role within it (being organised, risk assessments, facilitating production)
– Passion and enthusiasm for radio and podcasts
– Knowledge of music/FX and creating pictures with sound.
