BBC – Assistant Content Producer

Location: Salford

Closing date: October 10th

The Central Editorial Team sits at the heart of the BBC, online. Based at BBC North in Salford, we connect our audiences with the BBC’s content on desktop, mobile, tablet, Red Button and Connected TV services.

We manage the BBC Homepage, trusted by 8m people a week to guide them through the BBC’s online offering. We also produce imagery for the BBC’s award-winning iPlayer, oversee the pan-BBC search engine, and support Red Button services used by more than 17m people a week. Alongside that we also respond to issues which adversely affect users, or compromise BBC editorial standards.

Role Responsibility

You may be creating compelling headlines and copy for the homepage; sourcing, creating or editing images to illustrate on-demand iPlayer programmes or using Photoshop or other software on Red Button services.

You could find yourself working as a production journalist one minute and a picture editor the next.

You’ll work on a wide range of editorial production, monitoring and research tasks, reporting to the Duty Editor. This is a multi-skilled team, and members are expected to work across a range of tasks and services.

From monitoring breaking news to picking the very best image to illustrate an article or iPlayer programme – your editorial judgement needs to shine.

You’ll also ensure that all types of content (images, text, A/V, user contributions) are delivered to audiences accurately, as scheduled and to the correct standard. Importantly, you’ll also monitor and ensure the successful and editorially compliant delivery of central services – Search, Homepage, Red Button and iPlayer.
