Work With Us

Off Road Video Creator

Play Sports Network is looking for a Video Creator to join our growing team based in Bath. This vacancy is for our off-road channels – currently the Global Mountain Bike Network (GMBN), GMBN Tech and EMBN. Further growth is planned.

As Video Creator, you will be contributing to the filming and editing of Play Sports Network video output. Whilst based from our offices in Bath, the role often involves the opportunity to work on location, both in the UK and abroad. You must have a passion for creative filmmaking and a solid base of experience behind you, either working for a studio or as a freelancer.

Creators are responsible for assembling recorded raw material into a finished product that’s suitable for broadcasting. The material may include camera footage, images, dialogue, sound effects, graphics and special effects. This is a key role in the production process and your skills can determine the quality and delivery of the final product. Creators can work independently or closely with a presenter to achieve the desired end result.

Although this vacancy is targeted to our off-road output, you may be required to work as Creator on any of Play Sports Channels, including GCN, GCN Tech and GTN.

We have grown our foreign-language output recently and language skills would be a plus.

  • Experienced in location and studio filming

  • Comfortable shooting video, and operating lights and audio equipment
  • Able to prioritise projects and complete them with efficiency and accuracy
  • Able to learn quickly and adapt to changes in organisational priorities
  • You’ll also need imagination, creativity, patience, analytical skills as well as the ability to work well within a team, collaborate and communicate effectively.
