The UK Post Business offers a range of services through two specialist teams focused on the differing needs of the Feature and Broadcast markets. The total Production Budgets on Studio Feature projects range between £80M and £300M, therefore we are dealing with the elite end of the Feature Production Market. This assumes a highly political environment and sometimes altering opinions from those involved. More and more we are approaching projects using a ‘rolling conform’ approach, allowing a 'creative collaboration' such that changes continue to be made closer to the release date. Accepting the unpredictable nature of this work is important.
This role is responsible for working closely with the Production, Operations and Sales team, to optimise on the resources of the company and ensure that every job is scheduled with the appropriately skilled talent, in a timely manner. The scheduler must set up each resource booking so that there enough time to effectively complete all work as per the producers' notes and instruction.
Utilising their overall knowledge of the business, the scheduler is responsible for the correct allocation of kit, room and people resources as well as the resolving of any booking conflicts from a commercial aspect.
