The expanded team will be based predominantly in the BBC’s Moscow bureau as well as in the BBC’s headquarters in London, working closely and collaboratively (including with colleagues in BBC News) to deliver the best service for BBC audiences. We are also looking for reporting teams to work in locations across the FSU, Russia, and other locations.

BBC Russian aims to deliver international news relevant to Russian-speaking audience and to put the events in Russia and the wider region in a global perspective.

We are looking for a talented and experienced Journalist to develop and produce multimedia content.

You will understand the needs and profile of our target audience and will have the ability to translate these into imaginative and compelling visual ideas.
