We’re looking for an experienced, on-demand audio expert, to innovate in audience-led podcast and web content strands for BFBS Radio. In this dual role, you’ll also pitch for and make content for commercial clients, as part of the BFBS Creative agency team.
This is a new role and an opportunity to shape BFBS’s future approaches to non-linear content, try new things and encourage others to do the same.
As our subject matter expert working alongside a team of multi-skilled, audio professionals, we’ll look to you for creative solutions as well as to train and mentor other content creators.
You’ll have at least 3-years’ experience in leading editorial decisions in an audio production environment and will be able to demonstrate success in devising and delivering a successful podcast strand. Strong, practical edit skills will be second nature and you’ll understand the intricacies of audience insight, SEO and audio publishing strategies. A wide knowledge of platform opportunities as well as the rights and compliances around third party content are also essential.
You’ll be passionate about on demand audio, audience/customer focussed and able to engage with internal and external stakeholders, helping them understand the exciting opportunity audio presents. You’ll have experience in commissioning & making content, as well as in supporting others’ work, shaping their skills.
This will be a busy job, with a variety of projects to juggle so you’ll be well organised and a self-starter with very high professional standards. Based at our HQ near Gerrard’s Cross in Buckinghamshire and at our London office, currently in Victoria, you’ll also be willing to travel more widely to gather material and work with remote teams.
BFBS is a military charity and media organisation with a mission to inform, entertain, connect and champion the UK serving military, their families and veterans.
We have been keeping the armed forces connected and in touch for over 75 years, building morale and offering those overseas a valuable connection to life back home. We help them feel happier, know what’s going on around the world, share experiences and build communities.
Today, our TV, radio and digital platforms offer entertainment, news, sport and information services to UK Forces (serving and retired), their families and anyone interested in the military.
In recent years, building on our in-depth knowledge of this community and our digital, media and technological innovation expertise, we have also developed value-for-money commercial services. These include digital and creative solutions, a training and development academy and pioneering technical media and communication systems that work even in the most extreme environments.
Why work for us?
BFBS is an exciting and rewarding place to work. We are committed to looking after our people, helping them to develop their skills and build successful careers.
So, whether your background is military, media, digital, broadcast – or perhaps something else – if you want to work with talented and passionate colleagues, to help us in our mission to entertain, inform, connect and champion the UK Armed Forces, please take a look at our current vacancies.
