Job Description Details
At QVC we know what we’re doing, we’ve been doing it really well for over twenty years. Our customers trust us and we get closer to them than other retailers. We understand them, we look after them.
We are looking for Freelance Directors to join our Production team in Chiswick, West London – it’s a fast-paced and diverse role and when we say that two days are never the same, we’re not kidding. Just take a look around our business and it’s easy to see why. You can find our channels on Freeview, Sky and Virgin Media and we’re online at qvcuk.com and via mobile and tablet apps. We sell big name brands for everything from Elemis to Bose, Ruth Langsford, Amanda Holden to Dyson. Our business isn’t like any other business and you’ll love our people – we’re a friendly bunch.
You will be responsible for preparing, directing and vision-mixing our live and pre-recorded shows with a focus on making them visually appealing, compelling to watch and effective at telling the story of the brand, in line with the QVC style. You will work on shift with a team of Producers and Directors, working closely with our Presenters, Guests and Co-ordinating Producers to make sure that each programme on the schedule is fully prepared and planned. There’s a lot to get excited about as the live broadcasting and the off-line content creation environments are ever-changing. With a wide variety of shows, products and people, the role can be both interesting and challenging.
We are looking for freelancers with a proven background in multi-camera directing and vision mixing. You will be an expert in the gallery, happy to give guidance to others whilst being proficient in using graphics and the playout server for stills and moving images.
Being such a unique business, we tend to have lots of bespoke systems. To be successful you will be confident on all standard computer packages and you will also be happy to learn all of our new ones (they aren’t too tricky, honest)
We are looking for a natural born communicator, someone who can give direction confidently. Ideally, we would be looking for someone with home shopping TV experience but we are open-minded and will consider a skilled Director / Vision Mixer from any background – as we know it’s a bit of a niche.
At QVC we see it like this, you spend a third of your life in work, so work happy* Live better
