BBC Scotland is aiming to forge closer links with external organisations
following the appointment of Alex Gaffney as Partnerships and External Relations
Alex, who was previously Sales and Marketing Manager for Resource Operations,
will play a key role in establishing partnerships.
The appointment underlines BBC Scotland's commitment to developing partnerships
with a wide range of organisations, from independent production companies to
schools and colleges.
The role will also encompass building relationships with BBC Scotland's
neighbours at the broadcaster's new centre, Pacific Quay in Glasgow.
Alex said: "The role is about providing a line of communication between BBC
Scotland and independent production companies, fellow broadcasters and public
bodies seeking to partner with us - from colleges that may have ideas for
educational projects through to independents working on major productions.
"Partnering with bodies in the industry and in the wider community is an
increasingly important priority for BBC Scotland."
