Job at Red Bee Media

From Tim Nicholls:

I have enjoyed reading the alumni blog (I am not an LSM graduate but I did take some LSM modules as part of my course at the School of Computing). A runner position has just arisen at my company, Red Bee Media, that would probably suit recent School of Media graduates. It’s a runner’s job in the post production department that provides all manner of services for Channel 4. It should be a good ‘foot in the door’ here at Red Bee Media. We are industry leaders in a number of broadcast, video on demand and creative services. Its also a good opportunity to gain experience at Channel 4. The deadline is rather tight (17th March), and details are here:
