Closing Date: 23rd February 2020

Job Introduction

BBC Scotland is looking for a new editor for its news and current affairs programmes on the BBC Scotland Channel - The Nine, The Seven, The Edit, and Seven Days.

The BBC Scotland Channel launched in February 2019. At its heart is an hour-long news programme at 9pm each week-night, covering international, UK and Scottish news.

This has been a significant and exciting development in journalism in Scotland.

We are now looking for a successor to the launch editor, Hayley Valentine, who created a programme that reports the news around Scotland and the world through a Scottish lens, that reflects the diversity of modern Scotland, that is different from other TV news and current affairs programmes, and that showcases creative story-telling and original journalism.

The new Editor will be an experienced journalist with a passion for broadcast news and a clear vision of how to build on the successes of The Nine and its sister programmes, and take them forward into the coming years.

The successful candidate will have a track record as a dynamic creative editorial leader; an understanding of the changing needs of TV news audiences; ideas for maximising the impact of The Nine’s best journalism across other platforms; a determination to include a broad and diverse range of stories, views and contributors; an enthusiasm for collaboration with other editors; and a commitment to managing and developing a first rate team.
