Podcast Producer & Editor

Auction Podpost Closed!

A full time position at Dublin 2 Dublin, Ireland

Full Job Description

The Podcast Studios is a full-service podcast production company located in Dublin City Centre. We make audio and video podcasts for brands, organisations, and individuals, as well as running training courses and consultations. As HeadStuff we run the award-winning arts and culture website, HeadStuff.org, and the HeadStuff Podcast Network, an independent collective of top Irish podcasts.

We are a close-knit team of 10, working on all aspects of podcasting: audio and video production, editing, digital, sales and marketing. We are currently looking for a podcast (audio) editor to work as part of our production team. You’ll be part of the full process, from helping clients to set up and design their shows, to working with hosts and guests as a producer in the booth, to editing the final show. It’s a multifaceted role that will suit someone who loves to jump in, work as part of a team, and be a part of creating something new. We work with a huge range of brands and individuals; there aren't many workplaces where you might meet a world famous actor, a TD, a scientist, and a renowned author...in a single day! Alongside podcasts we also work on VO, audiobooks, webinars, remote and on-location recordings so there are opportunities to work on a variety of creative and challenging areas.

This is initially a fixed-term contract to cover maternity leave (6-9 months), however we would hope to make the role permanent.

Essential Requirements

Editing experience - you will need at least 2 years’ experience editing audio and working with a DAW. We use Cubase, but if you’ve worked with Audition, ProTools, Reaper, etc you’ll be fine. We’ll get you up to speed! Production experience - you don’t necessarily need to have worked in a studio before, but familiarity with recording techniques is a must. We record in studio, online, and on location so a basic understanding of mics, mixing desks, portable recorders, etc is essential. Again, we’ll provide training to fill in any gaps! Podcast fan - we listen to a lot of podcasts here! We’re looking for someone who is passionate about the podcast world, who listens widely, knows what they like and don’t, and is always keeping an ear out for new shows and ideas, and new ways to creatively tell stories. Attention to detail - we need someone who can work carefully to client specs, editing meticulously to ensure the highest quality final mixdown. People person - we work with a huge number of clients, many of whom have not recorded in a studio before, and so the ideal candidate will be friendly, outgoing, and able to put people at ease. Confidence - we need a producer who’s not afraid to jump in during a recording and keep everyone on track, on time, and on mic. Multi-tasker - the ideal candidate will be comfortable working on multiple tasks and calm under pressure. On any given day you might be emailing clients, running to a nearby office for a location recording, helping to set up a studio recording, editing a show, and liaising with a colleague on artwork or marketing for a podcast launch. This is a busy studio!

Non-Essential Requirements

We record video with lots of our podcasts so an understanding of video setups, lighting, video editing, etc is a definite plus but by no means essential.We do lots of training, workshops, and consultation. Any experience teaching, presenting, or speaking in front of large groups would be a plus. Any experience in voiceover direction or acting would be great, but not essential. Key Responsibilities include:
