We're Recruiting - Senior Audio Producer


We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved so far but we’re not stopping there, as we’re now looking for a new Senior Audio Producer to join the Studios team.

 

 

 

SENIOR AUDIO PRODUCER, SNK STUDIOS - JOB DESCRIPTION 

June 2021

 

SNK Studios is one of London’s leading Audio Post Production houses. We occupy 6 floors on Tottenham Court Road. We create sound design and record voice overs for commercials, TV shows and feature films. The building houses stereo, 5.1 and Dolby Atmos suites with three ADR spaces. We also have a separate foreign language Dubbing team and an Audiobooks team with four dedicated audiobook suites. These teams all have their own producers and co-ordinators, but everyone works (and celebrates!) together in a spirit of collaboration and support, which we love.

We believe that the people in our company are our strongest asset and we’re proud to have a brilliant team who amaze us every day.

We’re part of the SNK Publishing Group, based in London and New York, which includes Red Apple Creative - a specialist audio creative agency. Clients include major brands like Aston Martin, Hasbro, Paddy Power, Spotify, Disney and Amblin.

Diversity and inclusion matter to us. They’re not just words. We are committed to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity, physical ability, neurodiversity and experience. We welcome your uniqueness.

 We’re continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible and we always celebrate our success along the way.

We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved so far but we’re not stopping there, as we’re now looking for a new Senior Audio Producer to join the Studios team.

 

OUR CULTURE (DEFINED BY OUR TEAM)

We're honest and open. A swear jar would bankrupt us all. We're all equal and we laugh at ourselves...and each other. 

We're unconventional, productive and we do whatever it takes to get the job done. We like burgers (meat, veggie and vegan).

We always make time for each other and our clients. We live and breathe audio. We're people pleasers. We're all very different and we love that about our team. 

We praise each other and recognise achievements. We like going to the pub. We don't quit, we fix. We're kind and caring. We make a difference. We stick together and pick each other up when it's needed.

Some of us like to dance! We say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. We're passionate and motivated. We always leave our clients feeling good.
