Senior Programme Manager (Programme Support)
BBC Media Action is the BBC’s international charity. We support the independent media essential to democracy and development; and support people facing insecurity, inequality and poverty with information they can trust – to protect health, bridge divides and challenge prejudice. With our partners, we reach millions through creative communication and trusted media, helping people have their say, understand their rights, responsibilities and each other, and take action to transform their own lives.
We are now looking for an experienced senior programme manager to lead our programme support team.
The role leads a team providing support to our country offices in areas such as programme design, quality of delivery, donor compliance, logistics and business development. Working closely with our regional directors and country teams around the world, you and your team will also support the collection and sharing of good practice from projects across regions and facilitate knowledge sharing connections between countries. The role also plays a key role in identifying and helping to address organisational barriers to effective delivery of programmes and helps to connect country teams to expertise across BBC Media Action and the wider BBC.
You’ll have strong experience in international development in a project design or delivery role, preferably with direct experience of projects involving both media and international development. You will have excellent writing skills; be an experienced people manager; and be comfortable working with and supporting a wide range of colleagues, including remotely in different countries. Your communication skills will be strong, with the ability to quickly and effectively form relationships with a range of local and international partners.
