Whether you are brand new to subtitling or an experienced subtitler, we are looking for great team players with exceptional attention to detail and great spelling and grammar who can perform well under pressure. 

The team works from early morning to late evening, seven days a week, 365 days a year, so you will have to be comfortable with working evenings and weekends as part of a 37.5 hours a week rota pattern.

  • Ability to proofread, review and correct own work as well as text and scripts created by others to ensure 100% accuracy
  • Able to edit text or audio into clear subtitles which retain the full sense and flavour of the programme
  • A clear and confident speaking voice (as speech recognition is a key technology)
  • An interest in TV and a strong awareness of news and current affairs
  • Must be proactive in tackling difficult issues and in identifying opportunities for improvement
