Avalon are looking for creative, news obsessed researchers to join our production team for the next series of The Russell Howard Hour.

The ideal candidate should enjoy working in a fast paced environment and have the ability to identify the comedic potential in news stories, interesting angles and clips to punctuate them, as well as suggesting potential spin off items in the studio or on VT.

A background in current affairs and/or comedy would be a bonus, an enthusiasm for both is essential.

The contract would be from early October through to the end of February.

The closing date is Tuesday September 11th. Please send a CV and covering note to jdawson@avalon-entertainment.com
