A full time Producer position
Fully remote: working with a UK-based team at Overcoat Media.

Salary range: £27,000 to £34,000 (yearly rate) - subject to experience

Overcoat Media are hiring! Come join our expanding team.

We are looking for a full time audio producer to start work in March 2023.

Base: near Cardiff, South Wales (remote working possible)

Overcoat Media is seeking to appoint an audio producer as it expands its production base in South Wales.

You will have experience of producing high quality audio and a keen interest in factual documentary storytelling and cultural and music programming. Our ideal candidate will be highly self-motivated and able to manage every aspect of the production and editorial from initial development through to delivery. You will also be ready to take an active part in seeking new commissioning opportunities and clients, and will work closely with Overcoat’s Creative Director, Steven Rajam.

Overcoat Media is a leading producer of audio documentary features for BBC Radio 3, 4 and World Service. We also produce classical music programming and have a growing slate of narrative podcast series in production – encompassing BBC Sounds and international and commercial clients. This is a key area of business that we are seeking to grow, and we would welcome candidates with clear ideas about how we might do this.

Diversity is important to Overcoat Media. As well as being one of a small number of BAME-led and owned audio companies, we were among the first signatories of the Equality In Audio Pact and fully support its aims. We are also supporters of the Multitrack Fellowship, and seek to support and nurture talent from non-traditional backgrounds.

Overcoat’s production HQ is in South Wales, and we strongly encourage a collaborative working atmosphere – but we will consider applications for remote working.

Part-time working may be considered, as will flexible hours. 6-month contract initially, with the intention of moving to a continuing contract subject to performance.

To apply

Please mention in your application.
