Careers

Senior Journalist (Shoot Edit Producer - TV Sport News), BBC Sport

Job Introduction

The BBC’s Sports News reaches hundreds of millions of people a week across the UK and the World through our output on TV, Radio and Digital platforms. It has a track record of leading the way on major stories; delivering agenda-setting original journalism; and bringing the biggest sporting events to audiences with insight and impact.

Never before has sport been as central to the news agenda as now. Increasingly it is the prism through which many of the UK and the world’s biggest concerns – over identity, culture and politics – are played out. At the same time it continues to deliver exceptional human stories and on-pitch drama that engages huge and passionate audiences and brings the nation together.

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.

Role Responsibility

The shoot edit producer for World TV Sport works across a range of output providing video, audio and text for TV, Radio and Online. The shoot edit producer will work on their own or with colleagues to maximise our global sportsgathering operation on a daily basis, or with short-term or long-term planning work.

They will be a self-starter who is willing to travel, sometimes at short notice.

They will understand the pictorial and editorial requirement of a story and understand how content will work across digital platforms in addition to TV output.

The ideal candidate will be able to produce and direct VT reports to a high broadcast standard.

This is not an entry level role, we're looking for candidates with experience within the area, please review the criteria for the role before applying.
