Sunset + Vine a global sports media company with major international host broadcast production contracts and UK and international broadcast commissions. They produce more than 2,000 hours of original sports programming a year – a combination of live, highlights and feature programming, and are the production partner for BT Sport’s award-winning coverage of live Premiership rugby and Rugby Tonight. Based in Hammersmith and Stratford in London, with offices in Singapore, Glasgow and Cardiff.

They are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Junior Researcher to join their highly successful rugby team.  This is an entry level and part-time role and you would be required to work weekend through April and May. 

You’ll be working at their BT Sport’s studios in the Olympic Park in Stratford, where you will help with the production of their Sunday studio shows.  Saturday will always be a preparation day and Sunday a transmission day. 

It is a broad, fast-paced role that requires you to think on your feet and adapt quickly to certain situations. Tasks include:

  • idea generation and development; and
  • sourcing and compiling footage to go into the studio screens during the live show.


WHAT DO THEY NEED FROM YOU?

They’re looking for an enthusiastic, committed person who’s keen to gain valuable experience in a TV production environment – one which excels in sport coverage.  It’s not essential to know rugby, but it will certainly help, as will a passion for sports in general.  A strong understanding of social media is also a bonus. 

Before you apply, please be mindful of the following:

  • This is a two-month fixed term contract (April & May) with the possibility of extension.
  • It’s a part-time role i.e. 15 hours per week, on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • Pay is at the “London Living Wage” level (PAYE).
