Commissioning Editor, Popular Music TV
BBC is hiring a Commissioning Editor to lead the Pop Music TV Commissioning team.
The Pop Music TV Commissioning team will solely focus on pop music commissions, increasing its impact across all platforms to deliver a portfolio approach with BBC radio stations and increase habit with audiences.
The Pop Music team commissions a wide range of programmes including documentary films, acquisitions, live performance and returning titles like ‘Later with…Jools Holland’ and Glastonbury. The team is critical to delivering BBC’s strategy; responsible for both generating and developing bold ground-breaking ideas and working with independent production companies to commission content based on a deep understanding of audience needs and the genre.
As well as exploring opportunities and telling stories from the world’s most popular artists from the last 70 years, and broadcasting large scale event TV, the Pop Music team will shine a light on musicians who have enjoyed chart success in more recent years and explore subjects that will appeal to younger audiences.
To ensure success it is vital that you have experience in leading creative teams and you will be able to demonstrate your achievements in identifying excellence and driving quality in commissions.
