Video Editor

Job Introduction

BBC Three makes a range of experimental and innovative content 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 the Broadcast Digital Channel of the Year Award 2020 and numerous awards for shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, This Country, The Rap Game UK, Fleabag and Man Like Mobeen.

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.

The BBC is committed to redeploying employees seeking suitable alternative employment within the BBC for different reasons and they will be given priority consideration ahead of other applicants. Priority consideration means for those employees seeking redeployment their application will be considered alongside anyone else at risk of redundancy, prior to any individuals being considered who are not at risk.
