Leading a selection of projects across TBI’s highly varied output, helping develop production talent, producing content to an exceptionally high standard and deputising for the Head of Audio when required. This role will manage the day-to-day production, staffing, and delivery of several shows from our slate of live and recorded music-based & entertainment programmes.

There will be some hands-on studio production. You will lead by example taking the helm of one of our flagship shows, and demonstrating to the team first-hand what great production looks like.

You’ll represent TBI in editorial meetings, client meetings, networking and pitches – ensuring TBI is connected to channels and platforms.

The EP will assist the Head of Audio in the development, writing and pitching of ideas to channels. In doing that the role will help win more commissions in line with our creative and strategic ambitions.

An important part of this role is developing the talented team of producers already making these shows. This will be through 1-to-1 sessions, assisting in studios and helping to expand TBI’s monthly training programme.



  • Demonstrable experience of creating amazing audio content.
  • Comfortable making both speech and music output.
  • Experience of running teams.
  • Great contacts within the BBC and commercial networks / channels.
  • A creative mindset – this role will include development responsibilities.
  • 10+ years of producer-level experience preferred.


In addition to the above we are also (ideally) looking for:

  • Excellent communication skills
  • A positive attitude
  • A natural ability to stay calm under pressure.
  • A love of audio
  • Strong talent management skills.
  • Ideas. Lots of them.
  • Already developed skills in editing using BBC VCS, and ideally proficient in Reaper
  • Meticulous attention to detail.
  • A good-level of technical skill and experience – both in audio recording, studio operation and IT.
  • An interest in the world outside your specialist area – whether it’s arts, current affairs, pop culture or politics.
  • Great contacts and the ability to network with commissioners and talent (and agents)
  • An understanding of the importance of health and safety practices
  • An good understanding of the Ofcom Broadcasting Code & BBC Editorial Guidelines.


The role is primarily based at our London (Charlotte Street) office, although currently we are all working to a hybrid pattern of circa three days remote, and two days in the office. There is likely to be some weekend working due to the nature of the programmes involved[1].


The Executive Producer - Radio will report to the Head of Audio.
