Are you an experienced Business Analyst looking for a new and exciting challenge? Do you have an interest in improving the BBC’s environmental performance?
The BBC’s emerging environmental strategy focuses on our operations, industry and our audiences. It also sets targets for greenhouse gas emissions (carbon), energy use, travel, waste, water, staff training, sustainable productions and procurement, all to be met by 2022. Each BBC Division will have bespoke goals to help deliver the strategy.
The BBC’s Design and Engineering division (D&E) provides the technology for broadcasting. That means everything from transmission for TV and radio to BBC iPlayer and our online innovations to email and business systems for the BBC’s world-class programme makers and staff.
D&E is responsible for a significant share of energy and resource use in the BBC. Technology can also be an enabler that helps meet the targets e.g. video conferencing as an alternative to travel. Meeting environmental goals related to energy use reduction, travel reduction and staff training will be key for D&E. There is also the possibility of additional targets that are specific to D&E e.g. carbon reduction in the supply chain.
You will be joining BBC R&D, part of D&E, to work in the R&D Sustainability team, which is focused on the environmental impact of media technology. R&D’s Controller is the divisional lead for sustainability and has tasked the R&D sustainability team to make this assessment of D&E’s current activities and plans, given the BBC’s emerging strategy.
You will be helping to shape D&E’s sustainability plan by auditing D&E’s activities, both business-as-usual and development projects that have significant environmental impact; estimating the current environmental impact of D&E, identifying any knowledge gaps that exist and identifying any interventions required.
You will make recommendations for environmental targets for the division, and create a roadmap of how to achieve them including any organisational, cultural and process changes required.
