Unrivalled production, Unmissable programmes.
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.
The One Show is BBC One’s flagship early peak magazine programme that specialises in delivering high quality, high-impact journalism, reaching 3.5 million people every weeknight.
The One Show is part of BBC Studios Factual Topical & Live unit and is our daily Live magazine programme on BBC1 featuring topical stories and big studio guests.
We’re looking for an experienced Production Coordinator with a solid skillset to join a dynamic team who will deliver over 170 films to the One Show in the coming year. The busy Topical team produce a new VT every day of the week, with crews travelling to all points of the UK on a daily basis to hunt down the latest stories and film them for the One Show.
The PC will provide essential logistical and budgetary support to the Topical production team, co-ordinating production activities to ensure delivery is on time and within budget.
As a day-to-day focal point for the team, you’ll work closely with editorial staff setting up shoots and managing arrangements for the resources needed. Supporting the Production Manager, you’ll be clearing copyright quickly, sourcing resources and locations, retrieving quotes from suppliers, and negotiating deals. You’ll be working to tight deadlines, sometimes under pressure, while always producing work to a high standard
Are you the right candidate?
You’ll already have experience of working as a PC across a variety of content and will have a genuine interest in The One Show and BBC Studios Factual output. You’ll be an adaptable individual who is highly organised and can work well under pressure. You’ll need to have excellent problem solving skills, be a good communicator, have experience of working with budgets, hold good attention to detail when working in a fast-paced environment, and have a real ‘can-do’ attitude.
