Pioneer is one of Britain’s leading producers of factual programming for the UK and US markets.  We are recruiting for the following position:
HEAD OF DEVELOPMENT - £competitive.

This is a senior role for an experienced development executive who can demonstrate an ability to generate original ideas and take them right through to commission. Must have experience of working in the US market as well as the UK, and ideally possess a good contacts book in both.  The job entails working across a really wide range of different genres including popular science, lifestyle, history and factual formats: channels we supply on both sides of the Atlantic include National Geographic, Discovery, C4, BBC, HGTV, Science Channel, SKY, PBS, HGTV and several others,  so we’re looking for someone with real enthusiasm for creating popular and entertaining TV across the board.  The ideal candidate will be someone who is flexible enough to search for big characters in the Louisiana swamps, pitch an idea for a returnable science format or devise a property show.  You'll be leading a team of APs and researchers so good management skills are important too.  

Please send CVs and covering letter to sofia.brandt@pioneertv.com
