BBC Writersroom’s driving principle is to expand the range and reach of the BBC’s Drama, Comedy and Children’s output, working across radio, television, and online platforms for all networks, and championing new writing talent and diversity.

Together with our cultural partners inside and outside the BBC, the Writersroom sets up and implements development projects for writers and Production departments across the UK. 

The Development Co-ordinator provides comprehensive talent development and administrative support to the Writersroom Development Producer in Wales.

You will act as the first point of contact, liaising with writers, producers, script readers and talent scouts.  In addition you will organise events, talent searches and development schemes, and work with the wider Writersroom team across the UK.

We are looking for an individual who has a passion for, and an interest in, Drama and Comedy output across TV, Radio, Film and Online. You will have previous experience of providing support in an environment of comparable complexity. Experience of event management would be an advantageous, as would script reading experience and the ability to demonstrate sound editorial judgement.  You will have excellent communication skills and be able to put your own opinions across in a tactful and effective manner, both verbally and on paper.  You should be able to juggle a wide variety and large number of different responsibilities and projects, while still maintaining a high standard of performance and an attention to detail.  You will be a confident user of Microsoft Office packages including Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Welsh language would be an advantage.

We don't focus simply on what we do we also care how we do it. Our values and the way we behave are important to us. Please make sure you've read about our values and behaviours in the document attached below. You'll be asked questions relating to them as part of your application for this role.

The BBC is committed to building a culturally diverse workforce and therefore strongly encourages applications from underrepresented groups. We are committed to equality of opportunity and welcome applications from individuals, regardless of their background.

The BBC is currently implementing a Career Path Framework which will result in employees being aligned to generic job titles and job descriptions. Consequently, successful applicants may be realigned to a slightly different job title shortly after joining the BBC.

The BBC is committed to redeploying employees seeking suitable alternative employment within the BBC for different reasons and they will be given priority consideration ahead of other applicants. Priority consideration means for those employees seeking redeployment their application will be considered alongside anyone else at risk of redundancy, prior to any individuals being considered who are not at risk.
