Job Introduction

The BBC SSR Group exists to help get programmes made for TV, Radio and On-Line: by finding safe and healthy ways to enable the creation of the distinctive and world-class content that our audiences demand; by ensuring that our people, productions and premises remain secure and on air.

Based in New Broadcasting House, London, you will work in a small team delivering specialist safety, security and risk management advice and recommendations to BBC divisional heads, senior managers, producers and staff across a number of departments.

Role Responsibility

As SSR Specialist High Risk, your key remit is to ensure that staff (and others for whom the BBC has a duty of care), buildings, assets and information in hostile environments are appropriately and reasonably protected from a wide range of threats including (but not exclusive to) terrorism, war, crime and natural disaster.

Please ensure that you read the full range of responsibilities and requirements outlined on the appendix section on the attached JD, prior to making an application.

Please note that this IS NOT a Close Protection (CP) role.

Are you the right candidate?

A current medical qualification of FREC3 or above, and a recognised security qualification such as CPP, PSP. CBCI, CSyP is desirable but not essential.
