Operational knowledge of the NPWS and associated devices including broadcast transmitters, studio consoles, long form programming, emergency power generation systems and other related equipment is preferred. Applicant must have excellent communications skills (both oral and written), be a "self-starter" and have the ability to work within a team in a structured but unsupervised environment.
