Technology underpins everything we do, like producing great content, distributing it to our viewers, and making it easier for our people to communicate and work together. Without great technology and plenty of talented tech specialists to make it work, none of what we do would be possible. That’s why technology is considered a key part of our business. We have several Technology teams across the UK in our Manchester, Leeds and two London offices. There’s never been a better time to join us, as we’re currently in the process of modernising and transforming our business to make sure we’re fit for the future, whatever it looks like.
Our Technology department is made up of our Business-Facing teams and Central Functions teams. The Business-Facing teams partner with our four key business areas: Studios, Broadcast & Distribution, Shared Services and Online & Interactive. They’re there to make sure our services are delivered to the highest standards, and are helping us modernise our systems to bring us to the cutting edge of our industry. Responsibilities across the team range from supporting our production teams on our famous shows, like Coronation Street, to improving ITV Hub, looking after our websites and apps, and bringing the business into the age of cloud computing. There’s a huge choice of career paths for you to explore within our Business-Facing Technology teams.
Our Central Functions teams support the business as a whole and keep everything running smoothly. They include our Infrastructure, Service Delivery, Workplace Technology, AV Support, Business Change and Technology Management Office teams. Our Central Functions teams look after our internet access, Wi-Fi, storage systems, hardware and software. They manage our Technology Service Desk, make sure our meetings run smoothly, help to introduce new technology and provide cyber security to the whole company. With a role in our Central Functions team, you’ll play an essential part in keeping our business running, enabling us to grow, adapt and evolve.
