First, find your strategy

You just can't keep up with BBC Director of Strategy and Digital, James Purnell - he's decided he needs someone to devise a Digital Strategy. Or more fully, a Digital, Distribution and Technology Strategy [their comma].

This Controller will be paid at SM2, the lower grade of the two management bands - though it might be reviewed, and "has the potential to be SM1." But just so you know your place in the the pecking order, the Controller (Digital Strategy) BBC Policy and Strategy reports to the Director of Strategy, who, in turn, reports to the Director of Strategy and Digital.

And to fill out your diary before you start devising anything, you will be a member of  the Online Leadership Group (OLG), the Future Media Group Board and the Strategy leadership team.

You will "act as a key interface between Future Media, Technology and Distribution and Divisional Directors, the Controllers and Heads of Strategy in other divisions, the Director, Strategy, Director, Policy and the wider Policy & Strategy team to ensure strategic alignment and a One BBC approach to driving forward and delivering on the BBC’s digital vision"

Hell knows where Engineering (last week's new name for Technology) fits in. Maybe Jimmy hasn't caught up with his holiday emails...

And one final word of warning - your application will be forwarded to an unnamed external recruitment company, who will be doing preliminary interviews to create a shortlist. You can't expect busy James and Gautam to do that sort of work, clearly.
