We have a fantastic permanent opportunity for multiple Senior MCR Operators to join a market-leading digital sports content provider based in Northern Ireland.

In this role, you will be responsible for providing support in the master control room and ensuring the smooth delivery of all content transmitted worldwide. Your duties will include the management of IP contribution circuits, carrying out configurations according to booking information, quality controlling incoming and outgoing broadcasts and completing line-up checks and procedures with production teams.

As a Senior MCR Operator, you will also be responsible for troubleshooting and investigating issues within other teams and providing accurate reports on key deliverables. Your role will also involve the day-to-day running of the MCR and training and assisting junior members of staff. 

To be considered for this role, you must have strong experience of working in an MCR environment with knowledge of IP protocols and networking. It is also important that you have exceptional attention to detail, are self-motivated and have good ability to multi-task and work calmly under pressure, within a busy fast-paced environment.

Any additional knowledge of satellite delivery, decoding, decrypting and use of IRDs and AV/RF routers would be highly advantageous, as would any experience of working in sports broadcasting.  

This position will be working as part of a shift rota within a 24/7 broadcast environment, which will include nights, weekends and public holidays.

If you feel you have the right skills and experience to be considered for this opportunity and want to be part of this exciting project, then please apply now.
