MediaCityUK Round-Up: New CTO, new Jobs, videos and a big cake

It’s been a while since we did a news round-up, so lets get going:

    • MediaCityUK have appointed Red Bee’s Paul Clennell (pictured) as chief technology officer. He is due to take up his new role at MediaCityUK in the autumn. You can see more details at Broadcast.


    • MediaCityUK have begun searching for a ‘Head of Studios’ to maintain what will be the UK’s largest high definition TV facility. If you fancy the six-figure salary (plus benefits) you can apply here.


    • A number of other MediaCity-related jobs have come up recently including: An assistant for BBC Future Media & Technology (link); A Leader for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra (link); and a Receptionist and a Training Manager for NorthWest Vision & Media (link – soon to be based at MediaCity).


    • A couple of interesting videos surfaced this week – each embedded below for your enjoyment. The first is a news report from media trainee Natasha Carter, covering the progress of MediaCity and featuring interviews with David Carr (who recently resigned as Director of Operations), Jason Legget (Head of Business Development) and Lynne McCadden (Managing Director, NWV&M).

  • Finally, has a nice article about MediaCityUK’s 2nd birthday, with a picture of the massive cake that was shared out amongst the 1,500 building contractors. Yum!
