BBC Studios, a global content company with British creativity at its heart, is a commercial subsidiary of the BBC Group. Formed in April 2018 by the merger of BBC Worldwide and BBC Studios, we span content financing, development, production, sales, branded services and ancillaries. We make over 2,500 hours of content a year and our award-winning British programmes are internationally recognised across a broad range of genres and specialisms. We’re a champion for British creativity around the world and a committed partner for the UK’s independent sector. BBC Studios has revenue of £1.4bn, and we return around £200m to the BBC Group annually, complementing the BBC’s licence fee and enhancing programmes for UK audiences.
We are now looking for a HR Specialist - Project to join our HR team in London.
As HR Specialist - Projects you'll play an integral role in our business change programmes, designed to make BBC Studios an even better place to work.

You’ll be working with a range of senior stakeholders, including the HR Director, Head of HR for Production and Director of Content. You’ll be able to collect and interpret information from across the business, and use this to help make business decisions that are the best option for the entire company.
