For background, this is a new team set up as the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has allocated GBP 57m over three years to the BFI for the Young Audiences Content Fund to address a decline in commissioning content for children and young audiences. It will be a major new opportunity for creative UK content makers and commissioners to partner on the production and development of projects that embrace the values of public service broadcast content.

The role will work alongside executives responsible for investment of funds into production and development, assisting in negotiations with third parties and assisting executives with production finance issues. You will be responsible for creating and monitoring production budgets and cash flows for commissions, and will be liaising with the BFI finance team, external partners, and production partners.

The successful candidate will have a thorough understanding of the Children's Production and Broadcast landscape in the UK and internationally and proven experience of production budgets and financial management within the broadcast sector.

Based in Leeds, with occasional visits to London, you will enjoy benefits such as our pension scheme, excellent family support including flexible working, 28-33 days annual leave, tickets to BFI festivals and events plus many others.
