With a content portfolio like no other media organisation in the country, SBS occupies multiple channels and platforms, and provides a unique opportunity for employees to help make Australia a better place to live.

At SBS we believe that true entertainment isn’t only about reflecting the audience back at themselves - it’s a fantastic journey to somewhere different.

We are committed to ensuring the diversity of our organisation reflects the make-up of Australia.  Because bringing different people together doesn’t just make a better society - it makes better entertainment.

If this is what you believe, let's talk, because we are looking for an experienced and energetic Production Coordinator.

The SBS Production & Commercial team is an integrated team that works with the Australian production community to deliver outstanding local content to our audiences. The successful applicant will work as part of the team which commissions factual, documentary and drama programs from independent producers and produces some content in house.  

This role will liaise, in a confidential manner, with a range of internal and external clients to co-ordinate the successful delivery of commissioned programs to the network.

To be considered for the role you will be a- can do, creative problem solver and a natural organiser with an interest in all aspects of process essential for a busy and efficient production department. 

About the role

The main tasks/responsibilities include but are not limited to: 

  • Maintain up to date finance and workflow information within department software system including booking travel and general office administration. 
  • Provide accurate and timely information, advice and assistance to the production community regarding submissions, the commissioning process and delivery.
  • Provide support to Production Supervisors on all commissions and in house productions.
  • Co-ordinate a commissioned program’s progress through SBS’s administrative, monitoring, approval, payment and delivery processes and procedures up to the end of its license period.
  • Ensure accurate records are generated, updated and maintained for commissioned programs in SBS’s IBMS database software.
  • Co-Ordinate the submission of commissioned programs to Film Festivals, Screenings and Awards programs.
  • Accept and distribute all media assets. Co-ordinate the technical review of any delivered materials by SBS’s internal departments to ensure SBS’s contractual standards are met.
  • Full time, 12 month fixed term contract.

About you

Ideally, you would have a minimum of two years of experience in production and or post-production or the broadcast media environment and are familiar with the processes of production to delivery. You are energetic, pro-active and adept at learning new software, processes and systems.

Although you need to be a creative thinker and problem solver, this is not a creative role.

On offer is a fantastic culture, purposeful work and other perks such as free gym-membership and free onsite parking (depending on availability). If this sounds like the next career step for you, we would love to hear from you.
