Ideal World is an award-winning shopping TV channel devoted to lifestyle brands, homewares, and luxury shopping. Our channel is live for up to 19 hours each day broadcasting onto Freeview, Freesat, Sky, and Virgin TV platforms, as well as being broadcast on our website.

Our fun and interactive live shows feature limited-time deals, client partnerships, and a broad variety of product strands and categories. The channel has been on the air for over 20 years from our studios based in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.


You will report to the Head of Technical Operations, working as a member of the Broadcast Engineering team. This role requires the Engineer to be an active problem solver and to follow due maintenance procedures, whilst completing first-line equipment repairs and new studio installs and setups. You can expect a varied day’s work.


Applicants should have a strong technical background and be adaptable. Live broadcast studio experience is desirable as is a familiarity with shopping TV.

We are willing to consider any applicant with relevant experience in a trainee position on a six-month probationary basis.

We are seeking someone with strong verbal and written communication skills, a positive attitude, and a person who thrives under pressure. The successful applicant should be able to demonstrate problem-solving abilities and possess quick decision-making skills.


The TV teams work a 12.5-hour day on a rotating 7 days per fortnight shift pattern. There will also be occasional opportunities to work on our overnight maintenance sessions.

Salary will be offered depending on experience.

Ideal World Limited is committed to promoting diversity and providing equal opportunities in all areas of our business from recruitment, employment, and career progression to learning and development, and aims to establish an inclusive culture free from discrimination and based on the values of fairness, dignity, and respect.

We aim to ensure that all applicants, employees, workers, contractors, and visitors (including suppliers) will receive equal treatment regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy and maternity, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
