Senior Project Manager (Television production systems)
Production systems are central to the television production process and the effective management of the resources, assets, data and information within TV teams. Production metadata too is an increasingly important part of modern television production as a source for the rich tagging data needed for distribution of personalised and tailored content expected by audiences in the 21st century.
This role plays a central role in the delivery and management of a range of systems used for television production, specifically, the role is responsible for:
- Understanding, assessing and delivering roadmaps for the existing large production management reporting systems – e.g. Silvermouse
- Understanding, assessing and delivering roadmaps for core local production management systems in TV as well as some in Radio – e.g. systems used by the Antiques Roadshow, Watchdog and Network Radio
- Script Management software across the BBC and understanding, assessing and delivering roadmaps for this area e.g. Movie Magic and Final Draft
- Working with a central Rights & Scheduling product team to understand, assess and agree roadmaps for the delivery of some systems on their behalf e.g. Autoclear, C3PO and Sports Rights
- Managing the vendor relationship and delivering solutions for non-media Asset Management across the BBC used for outside broadcasts and prop stores – e.g. SiSo and EZOfficeInventory.
Are you the right candidate?
- We’re looking for an experienced project manager who has delivered projects in a complex, multi-priority environment.
- The successful candidate will have delivered software to large numbers of users, have managed procurements of software, and managed the change that goes alongside the delivery of new software – as users’ working processes can alter as part of the implementation of a new system
- Experience of working in a pressured organisation is desirable, as often our users and stakeholders are in the middle of or just starting a camera shoot in studio and on location
- Television experience is not essential but would be useful.
