Non-Executive Board members
Ofcom is appointing four new non-executive Board members for the Channel 4 Television Corporation (C4C).
The Channel 4 Board provides strategic direction and ensures the broadcaster’s statutory requirements and public service remit – the provision of a broad range of high-quality and diverse programming – are fulfilled.
C4C is a publicly owned, commercially funded broadcaster transmitting across the whole of the UK and available on all digital platforms (terrestrial, satellite and cable). C4C also operates a number of other services, including the free-to-air TV channels E4, More4, Film4 and 4seven, and All 4, the free advertising-funded video-on-demand service. Film4 co-produces feature films for the UK and global markets. The Corporation operates in a dynamic, fast-moving, competitive, technology-driven market. The future ownership and governance of C4C is under review. The outcome of this review may not be known during this recruitment process.
The C4C Board currently comprises the Chair, seven non-executive members and four executive members.
For these four Board positions, we are looking for candidates with one of the following backgrounds:
- As a current CEO of a Plc or other organisation at least the size of C4C;
- As a current or former Finance Director of an organisation of at least the size of C4C – this individual will take up the role of Chair of the Risk and Audit committee;
- As a digital media professional; with experience of the development and exploitation of digital technology and its use by consumers;
- As a senior marketing executive, ideally from within an organisation or agency, with a knowledge of television advertising.
A strong interest in broadcast media and some experience of the broadcasting industry would be helpful, as would experience of working with Government and Regulators. Candidates should be able to demonstrate how they will contribute to C4C's remit to appeal to the tastes and interests of a culturally diverse society.
