Project Manager for Pilot Show
The Big Talk provides a platform that brings together urban youth culture to discuss youth development, impact, and provides empowerment. Over the years, Ros Griffiths (Founder, Big Talk), has successfully organised events, throughout London, which allow young people aged 16 to 34 years old to debate important issues such as; policing, jobs, housing and enterprise etc., on their terms, in their space.
Total project duration: 6-month placement (timings to be discussed in initial meeting)
After successfully securing the backing of a leading television production company, The Big Talk are looking for a dynamic Project Manager to support with planning and the successful delivery of a pilot show – a new late-night live topical show, inspired by the ‘Big Talk’ concept, utilising all platforms, not just within the live linear show.
The project itself, is a partnership between The Big Talk and the production company, with the production company handling the creative side and the organisation handling the community and young person engagement. The Big Talk needs support in pulling off the creation of the TV pilot in planning, coordination, relationship building and outreach. The project will include fundraising as well, so any experience in this is hugely valuable.
For this role we are looking for an experienced project manager and doer who understands the power of young people’s voices and productive dialogue in a time of misinformation and ‘business-as-usual’ politics. Any experience working in the media industry is also very useful.
