British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust is a young, successful charity with an ambitious agenda. Funded by commercial broadcasters, we commission television programmes made in British Sign Language and we support the companies and Deaf programme-makers who produce them.
We are looking for two people to join our Commissioning and Content team for 12 months to work as BSLBT Executive Producers, working alongside two Production Executives and reporting to the Head of Commissioning. You will be the BSLBT editorial lead on a range of external factual developments and commissions as well as being involved in planning activities for commissioning and content.
As we are aware that eligible candidates may not have previous experience/credits as Executive Producers, we will attach a bespoke training and development package to each successful candidate.

You also need a good knowledge of Ofcom broadcasting codes, and the ability to give balanced feedback and problem solve collaboratively so that a production team can make their best programme.
