Ofcom is the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries. We regulate the TV, radio, fixed-line telecoms, mobile telecoms and postal sectors, plus the radio spectrum which enables wireless devices to operate.
The Standards and Audience Protection team are within Ofcom’s Content Standards, Licensing and Enforcement Department and are responsible for defining and enforcing content policy and standards to ensure that audiences are protected. Ofcom currently licenses around 2,000 television and radio broadcasters and has statutory duties to set and enforce standards for the content broadcast on those services. Ofcom also has duties to ensure that on demand programme services are regulated to the required standards. Our key role in this area is to ensure that appropriate protections are offered to audiences in an effective and timely way.
We are looking for a fluent English speaker to watch and listen to TV and radio programmes broadcast in Urdu and translate the content into English. The role will also involve assessing content against the Broadcasting Code and assisting on case and policy work.
