Job Introduction

Are you great at gathering, analysing and presenting information (using tools like Excel and PowerPoint) and working as part of a high-performing team?  Do you have a passion for helping teams think differently about how they work? Do you have an interest in continuous improvement and/or Lean?

If the answers to these questions are yes, we'd love to hear from you. You may not have done formal change projects before, but a lot of the skills we’re looking for are transferable. You’ll be excellent at data analysis, highly organised, a great team-player, and very eager to learn. Come join our team and help to make a real difference.

Role Responsibility

You will be working on a variety of improvement projects across the BBC, from smaller initiatives to larger scale transformations, both with Spark Improvement Managers and other BBC teams. You will be helping colleagues get to the root cause of their business challenges and, using different tools and techniques, help them to develop solutions.

A crucial part of your role will be to accurately interpret and present data in interesting, innovative, visual ways, appropriate to the audience (using Excel, PowerPoint, Visio etc).

You will be organising and facilitating workshops, making sure all attendees are able to contribute constructively and making sure outputs are captured.
