The company:

Time-Lapse-Systems (Hideaway Studios Group) are a leading provider of time-lapse and site monitoring solutions, as well as other specialist media. We provide services predominantly around the UK.

Although we work principally for the construction industries, we have camera systems operational for a broad portfolio of clients. From construction, demolition, residential, energy & utility building works to music, sports & leisure events, we relish working for hundreds of clients – big and small – from epic projects for global brands to smaller, one-off bespoke construction projects and special events.

Although every project is unique, our approach to every client is to always do the best we can and to deliver the best media possible, with considerable emphasis on quality and excellence.

We have a small but highly professional, specialist, dedicated and close-knit team.

The role:

We have a position for a reliable, committed and motivated person to join our ever expanding time-lapse team.

The role will consist of the build, installation, maintenance and de-commission of our Ultra HD time-lapse and site monitoring camera systems. You will have the fantastic opportunity to work on unique and fascinating projects, in some very interesting locations.

The job will be varied. You will be part office-based at our offices in Staffordshire, and you will be attending our clients’ sites around the UK and potentially Europe-wide.

Initially you will be working alongside senior technicians to receive specialist training. We are looking for someone who will learn quickly and grow rapidly within this role to be able to work collaboratively – as part of an effective team – as well as individually to manage their own time and work.

There will be plenty of opportunities for the correct person to develop and increase earning potential. Although qualifications, skills and experience matter – we are willing to train the correct candidate, and we put a great value on reliability, maturity, trustworthiness and the ability and eagerness to learn.

  • The position would suit someone who enjoys a varied and busy day
  • Some physical fitness is required as the work involves transporting equipment, installing fixing solutions and erecting our time lapse camera systems
  • Awareness of good health and safety practices, with the ability to interpret and follow Risk Assessments & Method Statements (RAMS)

Desirable but not essential attributes:

  • Experience in electrics and/ or networking.
  • A sound knowledge of DSLR cameras and photography equipment. This could be at a professional or keen amateur level
  • Have experience in the installation of IP/ CCTV camera systems
