Work With Us

Video Creator – Mountain Biking Specific

As a Video Creator you will be contributing to the filming and editing of Play Sports Network video output across our mountain biking channel (GMBN). 

You will need to have excellent organisational and communication skills to manage your workload and communicate with the team to produce excellent quality videos. You’ll also have a passion for working in a fast paced, dynamic environment.

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

Video Creators work independently or with a Presenter as part of a small team when filming on location, both in the UK and abroad. On a large project you may work with a sound effects editor, music editor and assistant editors.

This role is for our mountain biking channel (GMBN), but you may be required to work across any of our channels where required (road cycling or triathlon). You will need to  have a general level of fitness to attend shoots where a lot of physical activity is required.
