CBBC Alba is looking for a Gaelic speaking puppeteer

But the creators of CBBC Alba only want to hire someone who is fluent in Scottish, even though the successful candidate has never been heard on TV.

Producer Sarah MacKinnon said, “It’s very specialized and we can have our work cut out for somebody.

“There aren’t many Gaelic puppeteers out there.

Applicants must be able to bring Moo, a giant Highland cow to life.

“But the idea of ​​developing someone’s skills is an important part of the program.

“We want to give people with Gaelic the opportunity to further their careers and work with well-known puppeteers. “

The new Meaban’s Moo series features a puffin and his cow buddy who live in a fisherman’s shed.

It was imagined by Warrick Brownlow-Pike, who performs on Sesame Street and operates CBBC’s favorite Dodge T Dog.

The new recruit will be hired as an assistant.

Applicants are encouraged to submit a video of themselves, including a one-minute clip of a puppet, or their hand, lip syncing with a rhyme or song.

They should also add a short text about their experiences or interest in puppetry.

Filming for the show begins in Glasgow in September.

Sarah added, “It sounds simple enough, but it’s hard work. You have to work well with someone else and do the exact same thing as them at the same time.
