Series Producer - BBC Three
BBC Three makes a range of experimental and innovative content created aimed at 16-34 year olds. Since our launch as an online brand, BBC Three has been a multi award-winning pathfinder for the BBC and the wider industry, experimenting with new and unique ways of telling stories across different content forms and formats and with the means of distributing this content to young audiences in the places they are consuming content.
BBC Three content can be found on iPlayer and BBC One as well as across social platforms. The quality of the content has been recognised by audiences and the industry, winning awards such as RTS Channel of The Year, Broadcast Digital Channel of the Year and BAFTAs for shows like This Country, Killed By My Debt, Fleabag and People Just Do Nothing.
It is committed to developing new talent in front of and behind the camera and finding distinct, diverse new voices representative of the whole of the UK. The ambition is for BBC Three to be braver, more provocative and more of the moment than any other part of the BBC, producing content which is uniquely close to its young audience, honed to their passions, locality and life experiences.
We are looking for a talented Series Producer who is passionate about making content aimed at 16-34 years olds. You will lead a small dedicated team within BBC Three that develop and make fact/ent formats aimed at our target audience. Hot Property is the most recent series to come out of this highly talented team.
Are you the right candidate?
You will have an acute understanding of young audiences and be able to tap into what they care about.
You will have experience of working in a digital environment but will also have delivered series for TV with strong leadership skills and a highly imaginative individual with a proven track record of successfully producing exceptional factual entertainment content and turning ideas into reality. With a working knowledge of production and post-production processes, you will be able to effectively deliver content on time and within budget.
It is important that you can demonstrate strong editorial judgement.
You will have proven editorial skills and a thorough understanding and experience of managing content in terms of Editorial Policy, Commercial Policy, Producers Guidelines, Technical Standards and Health and Safety.
You will understand the ways in which we get content to our audiences and ways to optimise. You must have excellent written and verbal communication skills to ensure effective relationships with the BBC Three team and others inside and outside of the BBC. You must be adaptable and resilient to be able to cope with the pressure of managing the demands of a high volume of work, meeting tight deadlines and managing a team.
