On trial

Some more news on James Purnell's Ideas service at the BBC. It's now being described as a mobile-first, online product trial. The project is looking for an Editor (Commissioning) at Band 10 (clearly not yet mapped to a new broad band job family), on a fixed term contract - no word on duration.

The ad introduction (at time of writing), in the online version, is repeated, and favours "surfacing" and ampersands....a sort of grammatical shedding of the tie.

"BBC Ideas will focus on surfacing ‘short-form’ factual content on mobile & digital platforms, in tune with busy users who are on the move, but who want to spend their time finding out more about the world and their place within it. BBC Ideas will make you stop, think & enjoy factual content and ideas, surfaced by a trusted & friendly BBC service."

The new Editor (Commissioning) will report to an Executive Editor, Bethan Jinkinson, who's been with the World Service since 1996, rising to Digital Editor.
