Researcher vacancy for BBC Springwatch


As part of the Watches brand, Springwatch has come to represent the home of UK wildlife output on BBC 2, with a reputation for topicality, story telling and rigorous scientific reporting, and we are looking for an experienced and highly motivated researcher to join the Springwatch team.

This is a chance to help shape the wildlife editorial on this highly successful live natural history series, delivering a live television event complete with web content and audience contributions.

The successful applicant will need to demonstrate strong editorial skills; coming up with and developing new ideas, setting up and going on shoots, working closely with talent and contributors collecting and collating new scientific research by building links with well-established academic projects.

Knowledge of UK wildlife is essential, but more importantly we are looking for candidates who want to share that passion; who want to engage our existing audience in new and challenging ways, while also reaching out and bringing new audiences to the Watches brand and a love of British wildlife.

Start date is March through to end June 2018. Location: Bristol. Closing date 29 January 2018.
