Head of engineering

This video presents James, head of engineering for a radio company. James discusses how after finishing school he didn't know what to study at university. After discovering a passion for sound engineering he went on to study it further, and how he was offered the role of junior engineer. James also discusses his career journey and his aspirations, as well as his work on the Brit Awards, which included editing red carpet interviews during the ceremony.

This video can be a useful resource for teachers to help bring the career to life as part of a lesson. It can also be used by STEM Ambassadors running sessions in school and at STEM Clubs.
