Audience Research Manager (BBC Audiences)
The BBCs Audiences team are looking for an Audience Research Manager for a twelve month fixed-term contract, based at Broadcast Centre, London.
This Audience Research Manager is part of the Audience Measurement team. The team is specialist in the measurement of audiences across all platforms, mostly based on panel and sample research. The team is responsible for the bespoke continuous research contracts which capture audience perceptions of quality and cross media consumption and manages the BBCs industry contracts (BARB/RAJAR/UKOM).
The position will focus on the BBC's role in the further development of the Dovetail project, initiated by TV industry currency BARB. A key element is to help manage the metadata that feeds into BARB and our other research tools. The role will also involve working on data integration projects between our cross media measurement tool, Compass, and additional data sources we want to link up (those are both bespoke data and 3rd party data sources).
All of the work is linked to complex data sources, advanced data integration models within a challenging metadata set-up at the BBC. So the person in the role will need to be comfortable in dealing with this complexity and create a simpler set-up where possible. The role will also involve frequent contact with outside (market research) agencies.
Are you the right candidate?
Experience in project management, managing complex data sets, managing research agencies and a high level of comfort with managing these projects are key skills for this role.
The role requires a good attention for detail and an eye for data (and possible issues in the data). In terms of the skills were after, ideally you’d have experience of:
- Project management, data analysis, processes.
- Problem solving & being able to manage complex data sources and metadata.
- BARB or other industry trackers.
- Building effective relationships with agencies and internal stakeholders.
