Social Media Producer
BBC Radio 1 searching for an experienced producer to grow and develop R1’s short video channels and create world class short video formats. You will be just as comfortable working on developing content for specialist music, a breakfast show that entertains millions or a global music festival.
You will be quick-witted, calm in a crisis and love nothing more than spending your days talking about music, memes, and pop culture, involving our audience in large scale campaigns and communicating your ideas successfully to a team of producers, high profile presenters and senior leaders.
This role is Radio 1 focused but also will mean responsibilities across Radio 1Xtra and BBC Sounds. The primary focus of the role will be increasing engagement to raise the profile of our presenters and our output and support more and frequent listening to Radio 1 and BBC Sounds.
Are you the right candidate?
You will have a passion for and be able to demonstrate that you’re a fan of Radio 1’s music, culture and output. You will ideally have a track record in using audio and social video to engage with under-35 users and putting brands, artists or publications at the heart of conversations. You will be expected to have a good awareness of PR and marketing and understand how to integrate your social output into wider BBC campaigns and activity. You will be aware of how music rights, strategy and policy need to be considered when working on third party platforms.
Community management – an experience in developing fan-bases, tone of voice and building either a Tik Tok channel, Snap or Instagram account for a high profile brand – from scratch - in the past is essential. But most importantly you will be highly experienced at creating short video formats, memes and visual stories that have the potential to engage millions of young fans.
The role requires some flexible working and travel to ensure delivery of key initiatives such as campaigns and events. The social media team in Radio HQ thrives on collaboration and all staff may be asked to work across different networks in order to deliver the overall strategic and editorial aims of BBC Radio and BBC Sounds.
