Jobs at BiTC Media

Post Production Transcriber

We are looking to expand our freelance transcriber team with enthusiastic professionals that have an eye for detail and that are available throughout the working week, evenings and weekends.

The Role

This role is best suited to individuals looking to work remotely and that have the ability to manage their own time effectively.

You will be required to transcribe final programmes before they air on television and so the ability to transcribe multiple speakers and situations is a must. Also working to tight deadlines is very important.

You must have an eye for detail, enthusiasm to learn and you must be reliable!

You will be contracted as a freelancer and so should be registered as self-employed and responsible for your own tax and NI contributions.

We offer you the chance to be part of a rapidly growing team and the chance to work on some of the UK’s top TV shows.  You will have the flexibility to work from home.  We also offer highly competitive rates of pay.

Key Skills

We have a short list of key skills that will enable you to work effectively as part of our team.

  1. A typing speed of at least 70 wpm
  2. Facilities to work remotely – mainly a PC/Laptop and a Fast Reliable Broadband Connection
  3. MS Word
  4. Top notch spelling and grammar skills

Training and Mentoring

We produce high quality, uniformed transcriptions and post-production scripts to a variety of production companies and broadcasters.  To do this we invest a lot of time training and guiding each member of our team in order to produce the same level of work across the board.

Because of this, we ask that you commit to at least 21 hours a week to the role across a working week.

The Next Stage

If you meet the above criteria and wish to take your application further, please apply with your CV and cover letter explaining why you would like to work with us.

Once we have received your application we will be in touch to arrange a first round telephone interview.

After this, the next stage is an initial trial project that takes approx. 2 hours of your time to complete. This includes a transcription, spelling and a grammar test. Think of this as your interview – your time to impress us with your skills!
