Research and compile interview briefs, find talent and write punchy scripts
Execute tight audio edits which keep only the best bits of the story

Ambition, a positive attitude and be a personable team-player willing to get their hands dirty and dive into the detail when required
A track record in developing and coordinating production schedules so deliverables are met on time and on budget
