Production Manager

Shortly after completing my honours degree at the University of Plymouth, I began working for Silverstream TV as the Production Manager. Silverstream has clients all over the UK and Europe, and it is my job to coordinate all the logistical aspects of our operations. In office, I work alongside the company directors to formulate weekly plans of action for our team to go out and provide the high quality service that Silverstream offers. This entails me to be in direct contact with a number of logistical services, such as hotels, car hire companies and event organisers. Due to the nature of the industry, plans and locations can change in an instant. It's part of my role to provide detailed digital call sheets for the staff, in order for them to be kept constantly up to date with Silverstream's production schedule. I also enjoy going on location with the rest of the team, and help to provide potential clients all the information they need on our services.
