BFBS – TV Sport Scheduler (Sports Planner)

BFBS TV is an unrivalled mix of current UK entertainment and top-flight sport specially compiled for British Forces communities posted overseas. We work with major broadcasters, platform operators and rights owners at national and global level to deliver a unique service across on land and at sea.

Reporting to the Rights and Acquisitions Manager, we are looking for an experienced TV Sports Scheduler (Sports Planner), to join our scheduling team, working across our multiplatform output of satellite and OTT.

You will have a strong interest and extensive knowledge of sport on TV, as well as an understanding of rights, to assist in our overall content strategy.
