If you are searching for a new challenge in the special effects space but none of the above vacancies are quite in line with what you are looking for, please do send us your CV and a cover letter. We are always eager to connect with individuals who possess skills in engineering and carpentry—especially if they have got a flair for special effects.

You can email your CV to recruitment@realsfx.com and if a role comes up that we think may be of interest, our HR team will be in touch. We will keep your details on file for 12 months.

Real SFX is a great place to work, and no two days are the same. We have worked hard to develop a culture of inclusivity, creativity and innovation, which is evident by the wonderful work we create. Please note that we offer some wonderful trainee programmes and play a key role in introducing fresh talent into the special effects industry.

Training

At Real SFX, we are lucky enough to welcome new talent through our doors on a regular basis, providing a variety of training programmes and resources to help our team gain knowledge and grow with us as we do.

This passion for training is fed by the critical technician skills shortage the special effects sector faces, as well as our drive to constantly innovate and inspire the next generation of special effects professionals.

We are also passionate about getting out in the community and educating young people on routes into the industry. This involves working with local schools and colleges, attending careers events and much more.

We are proud to sponsor SAW (Screen Alliance Wales). Via this partnership, we have provided live demonstrations to thousands of schools, showing the next generation the wonders of visual effects and the fascinating industry we work in.

Apprenticeships

We have enjoyed great success through our various Apprenticeship programmes. Apprentices have been part of RealSFX from the start. Our wonderful Apprentices have been central to us building the business and the workforce in Wales.

We are very proud of the fact that we hire an Apprentice every year, with 90% staying with us and remaining part of the Real SFX team.

In 2023, our Technician, Will, was recognised as one of the 100 “Technicians: We Make a Difference”, being awarded The Royal Hauksbee Award for his invaluable contribution to the industry. This was an initiative formed by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation.
