Post Production Runner
Post-production is the last stage of the television process and involves creating a finished programme using the footage from production, refining elements such as sound, editing and grading.
A post production runner will be on hand to help out in the edit suites and around the building. If you have no experience in TV this is a great place to get your foot in the door as employers will often look for customer service experience for the role. This is also a role where you can learn about the industry and how a television show is made.
