Media Support Officers work in the Educational Media Services team. The roles support departments to create and publish high quality educational media in the institutional media channels. The key publishing channels to support include http://itunes.ox.ac.uk and http://podcasts.ox.ac.uk and the University livestreaming service and Replay Lecture Capture.
Oxford, like many UK universities, is witnessing a rise in the demand for media support and at the same time is exploring new projects and technologies in the areas of livestreaming, podcasting, digital video and digital creativity. The Officer will assist and advise senior academics, researchers, communication officers and senior administrators on planning and carrying out complex media projects and the role needs excellent communication skills and interpersonal skills, as well as technical experience. The post holder will deal with enquiries and manage the recording, cataloguing and editing of both live events and studio work. They will need to carry out regular training to acquire additional skills in media management technologies and will help set the direction of the publishing channels. Some early evening and weekend work will be required as many of the high profile events in the University take place at these times.
