About You

You’re enthusiastic, eager to learn with a great work ethic.  You may currently be working within telecommunications or broadcasting and be interested in a new challenge!  

You have an aptitude to fault finding using optical, video and IP networking tools, and are happy to get stuck into commissioning and de-commissioning our technical infrastructure.

You’re excited about the prospect of travelling to around 15 races per season and not phased about working long days and race weekends. 

You have:

·       A basic knowledge of computer networks

·       Great communication skills – both verbal and written

·       Experience of installation, wiring, configuring and troubleshooting of Technical Systems.

·       Experience working within a manual role e.g. rigging or installation
