Broadcast Manager

Are you an audio-visual whiz with a well-wired digital mind? We want your brain (and the rest of you, please).

The Broadcast Manager will oversee and coordinate the delivery of high-quality video for the 2020 Melbourne Fringe Festival. In response to COVID-19, we’ve created Digital Fringe, a customised web platform built to showcase Melbourne’s independent artists. More than just a series of YouTube links, Digital Fringe features a bespoke online video player, a digital foyer with chat and drink ordering, and a seamless “choose your price” payment function. Digital Fringe aims to adapt the Fringe experience for online, recreating the liveness of the Festival context.

The role includes the technical management of all independent and Fringe-produced digital content, overseeing the back end of the Digital Fringe platform and coordinating both pre-recorded and live-streamed video. The Broadcast Manager will liaise with Festival artists to provide technical advice, schedule technical tests and oversee the uploading of artist content to the Digital Fringe platform. They’ll work closely with the team at Trades Hall to ensure high quality broadcasts.

We value diversity and we are a welcoming place for everyone – we’d especially love to hear from culturally diverse applicants, First Nations peoples and LGBTIQ peoples. Do you have access needs? We’ve got you. Just let us know when you apply. Need to send in an application in a different format? Get in touch and we can help.
