International Production Coordinator

Play Sports Network is looking for an experienced Production Coordinator for our international channels to join our growing team based in Bath.

At Play Sports Network we create over 30 videos every week for the world’s largest YouTube channels in cycling. We have ambitious plans for international expansion, and the International Production Coordinator role is a key part of this.

You will be responsible for ensuring that all content is delivered on time, you’ll support the development and implementation of key projects and processes, and take responsibility for the organisational and logistical aspects of all production on our growing portfolio of non-English language channels.

The position will require work on location in the UK and overseas, sometimes at short notice. All communication is in English, but the ideal candidate will speak a major European and/or Asian language in addition to English either natively or fluently and idiomatically.  You may be required to work flexible working hours due to time zone differences.

Experience in online video is desirable, a full driving licence and the ability to work in the UK and EU is required. You’ll also need a passion for bikes, be it road or mountain; it’s important to us and our viewers, so be prepared to join the rest of the team on rides during the year!
