Graduate - Audio & Video Engineer
Canford, market leaders in professional audio and video products, particularly for broadcast, have opportunities for new or recent graduates to join their Technical team, based at the company’s main premises near Newcastle.
Preferably you have a degree that majored in subjects such as audio, video or broadcast engineering. Alternatively, you’ll have experience in theatre, ents/tech teams, local/student radio or similar. You’ll certainly know what Dante is, and what 4K/12G means.
The Canford tech team cover many aspects of our operations, including product management, product support, creation of material for the web catalogue, authoring of technical feature articles for the website and publication, creation of design briefs for our manufacturing department, and much more.
You’ll also be involved in the creation of business tools to enable customers to easily specify and price up custom products such as cables and connection panels, all of which are produced by our in-house manufacturing facilities.
As a responsible company, we have to be mindful of a wide range technical compliance issues, something the team also have responsibility for. There may also be opportunities to represent Canford on technical committees such as those of the IABM and PLASA.
There will be some travel to industry exhibitions that Canford attend, such as IBC, ISE, BVE, ABTT and Cabsat. You will also be supporting the key account sales team by handling product demos at customer premises from time to time.
In an industry with such dynamic technology development, it is expected that the company will support the need for continuing professional development through attendance at relevant training sessions when required.
A senior technical role within the company is a likely prospect in due course, as some of our original team take well-earned retirement!
Canford celebrates 41 years in business this year. Despite the market changing radically during this time, and technology underpinning many of the products changing so quickly, Canford has adapted so as to remain the leader in our specialist field, whilst retaining the highest levels of customer service on which our reputation is based.
