Contract type: Fixed Term – Full Time

The successful candidate will be expected to think beyond words – including the best use of imagery, graphics and video. They will have knowledge of how we can maximise our impact natively on social media – from Moments, Stories and Lives to increasing engagement. They will be able to adopt the right tone of voice and be able to respond to situations and conversations for a younger audience.
The successful candidate will have a full understanding of what Body Positivity means as well as a passion for developing and distributing new and innovative content to the target audience. Knowledge and appreciation of the digital industry is essential. They will also have experience of planning and executing social media campaigns as well as experience of monitoring social media channels. It’s essential our Assistant Producer has substantial experience of writing copy – whether that’s for social, online radio or TV. This should be coupled with excellent editorial judgement and flair, and the ability to work creatively and accurately under pressurised conditions.
Demonstrable experience of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and a clear awareness of how they are currently used across the BBC is needed for this role, as is working knowledge of other social media platforms and how they engage our core audience and attract emerging audiences. Previous experience of social media community management is desirable. A strong interest and knowledge of health, wellbeing and social issues would also be desirable.
