BBC Studios Factual Entertainment are looking for an experienced VT Director to join The One Show team from asap until Friday 1st October for a role based in London.


The ideal candidate will be good with people, very experienced with interviewing contributors, have solid shooting credits for broadcast, and used to working across varied fast turn-around Topical VTs. The role often works alongside a small team which includes a shooting researcher and a sound recordist so we are very much looking for someone who is confident and experienced to lead them. Although subject-matter can be varied, please note that at times we may be covering topics of a sensitive nature so any experience of this would also be beneficial.


The role will involve; leading this small team, planning the shoots, self-shooting on C300 / FS7 cameras, and edit producing the content for broadcast. The role is London-based with a mixture of working from home, being on location, coming into the New Broadcasting House offices either to pick up kit or edit produce from our in-house edit on site so we are also interested in hearing from self-shooting PDs who have experience in working up fast turnaround or short-form VTs in the topical / factual / magazine-style / current affairs space.


If you have the skills and experience listed above and are available for the dates stated, please send your CV and details of your availability to with TOS VT in the subject box.

Please ensure you also include information on the following for consideration:

– The exact date you are available from

– Which cameras you are confident- using to self-shoot

– Your experience edit producing so far

– Clarify any experience you have in covering topical/consumer content


Please note that we cannot individually respond to everyone who gets in touch so you will only be contacted if you are shortlisted.


The deadline for applications is 4pm THIS WEDNESDAY 22nd September so please send your details ASAP if you would like to be considered.
