Extendee - Interactive Team Assistant, BBC Future Media
The Interactive Technical Advice and Contracts Unit (ITACU) was formally launched in 2008 with responsibility for managing the risks to the BBC offering certain interactive services and to ensure that the BBC meets mandatory regulations as defined by Ofcom and the BBC Trust. Initially, focusing on interactivity on TV or Radio, ITACU is now responsible for any votes, competitions, awards or charity donations run by the entire BBC.
As Interactive Team Assistant you'll support the Interactive Production Managers and the Office Co-Ordinator within ITACU, who help Production teams manage votes, competitions, awards and charity appeals (often referred to as “services”) across all platforms (e.g. Telephone, SMS Messaging, Red Button and Online). You will join the Interactive Team of five people. As well as liaising with various BBC departments and external parties to ensure that service requirements are delivered on time, you'll help organise our project work so that service support is handled as effectively as possible.
The Ideal Candidate
We need you to ideally have up to date knowledge of different interactive technologies and/or a keen interest in interactivity methods. You'll have experience of working in a team, overseeing many varied tasks and your interpersonal skills will enable you to establish and maintain credibility and effective working relationships with all seniorities of colleagues and clients. As well as technical knowledge of relevant interactive services or a keen interest to develop knowledge in these areas, you'll also have a proactive approach towards work with effective personal time-management skills.
