Working with the Executive Producer of BBC Studios Factual Entertainment, you’ll be responsible for the One Big Thank You films for The One Show, a popular surprise strand which our team in Cardiff and Belfast deliver on a weekly basis.
You will drive the scripting and edit process as well as coming up with creative treatments for the films and be responsible for the celebrity casting involved in the strand. You’ll help oversee the forward planning and development for the films with a small team, including tasking researchers, directors and editors, with filming happening all over the UK.
The Ideal Candidate
You will have experience working in short-form filmmaking and across multiple genres.
You will be used to bringing a creative approach to programme-making, with strong evidence of using treatments to create engaging content.
With experience as a Series Producer or Series Editor, you will have a proven track record of managing teams from ideas generation through to overseeing and delivering final edits.
You’ll have evidence of sound editorial judgement and the ability to lead a team and inspire creativity through others, and demonstrable experience of organising and keeping on top of changing schedules in a fast-moving environment with sometimes sensitive stories.
You’ll be thoroughly familiar with editorial policy issues and have experience with secret filming and legal situations. You will have the authority to build positive collaborative relationships with suppliers and stakeholders, including filmmakers and producers, whilst talking them through often complex issues.
You’ll combine a deep understanding of our output and BBC Studios editorial values with the creative skill and ideas to produce first class content and engage our diverse audience in new and exciting ways.
