Job Introduction

BBC Children's is committed to offering the best cross-platform and on-demand service for UK children, providing a trusted environment which is enriching, enabling and relevant to under 16s.  


Our content seeks to entertain, inform and empower children, adding real value to their lives.


Working within BBC Children’s, Stay Safe aims to be a child-focused multi-platform brand that positively engages young people – primarily 9-12s – with issues around competency, confidence, and resilience in the digital space.


For stage 2 of this important project, we are about to re-launch with a new name, a new website, and new branding.  We’ll have a much greater focus on creating bespoke content, and building strong partnerships with well-known, well-loved CBBC brands to help deliver our message.

Top candidates will have brilliant ideas about how to drive our target audience to engaging, authentic multi-platform content.  They will also have a track record of delivering content across a range of genres.


You’ll live and breathe all things digital, and have an understanding of GIFs, memes, short form video and online digital formats. You’ll actively use and understand platforms such as YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook and will have an interest in consuming content on these platforms, as well as a track record of making it yourself.

Technical knowledge and experience of digital publishing will also form part of the role.

You’ll have some experience with self-shooting and self-editing skills and/or be great at putting together visual packages using Photoshop or After Effects, similar to the kinds of content you might see on Snapchat Discover or PopJam. You’ll also have an understanding of the BBC Children’s audience, a passion for developing new and innovative content, and the ability to translate that passion into your day-to-day work. 

The production team for this strand will be based in Glasgow, however there will be travel to Salford and other areas depending on filming schedules/workload.
