Assistant Producer, Live Stories (Content Social Team)
You’re a digital storyteller. You live and breathe social. You’re on Snapchat, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter. You’re online more than you’re offline. You make videos that make people laugh, or think, or get involved, and you get a thrill every time someone likes, comments or shares your stuff. You’ve been creating videos on social to build your personal brand, and now you’re ready to reach a bigger audience.
We’re BBC Content. We make some of the world’s best TV programmes for 16-34 year olds, from Eastenders and Doctor Who to People Just Do Nothing and Fleabag.
We’re looking for a talented young content creator to join our new Content Social ‘Live Stories’ team, making Snapchat and Instagram stories, as well as live videos on Facebook and Twitter. The content you make will be published on some of the BBC’s biggest social accounts, including BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Comedy, and be seen by millions.
As an Assistant Content Producer in our Content Social team, you will plan and create social video content in support of some of the BBC’s biggest TV programmes. Sometimes you’ll be in front of the camera hosting the content, sometimes behind it, producing the story. You’ll get to work with our TV Commissioning, Production, Marketing and Creative teams, as well as other external creative talent.
As a storyteller you’ll be able to connect with our young audiences across multiple social and digital platforms, demonstrating your strength in script writing, creative ideas and presenting. We want you to be ahead of the game and always thinking creatively. You will have a strong understanding of what’s new when it comes to the production, formats and style of social assets.
So if you want to introduce the next Doctor on Instagram Live, or snap from the Strictly final, come and join the BBC Live Stories team.
