We want BBC Sport’s output to reflect and understand the audiences we serve - for example, the different geographical regions of the UK and the experience of people from underrepresented groups (eg people from Black, Asian or minority ethnic backgrounds, people with lived experience of disability, individuals within the LGBTQ+ community and those from lower socio economic groups). We are therefore actively seeking individuals with skills or experience that can help contribute towards ensuring we maximise the diversity of our coverage and content.
From the World Cup to the Olympics, whether it’s Premier League football, 6 Nations Rugby, International Cricket or the top Tennis tournaments, BBC Sport is at the heart of the world’s major sporting events. Our Radio Sport team make sure that every day, throughout the year our audiences are served with world class coverage of the live sport events as well as providing all the stories surrounding every sport.
The Radio Sport department provides all the sports event and programme content for both Radio 5 Live and sister station 5live Sports Extra and Test Match Special for Radio 4 LW. We are also the production team that has created and delivers award winning podcasts, That Peter Crouch Podcast, Football Daily and Rugby Union Weekly.
We are looking to recruit 2 Production Coordinators to join the team and work with the Radio Football team to deliver the most comprehensive live radio football commentary in the UK. Whilst this would be your primary role, you may also be asked to work across the production of sport programmes for 5live Sport, live sport, podcasts and digital content.
