UK pay TV channel provider UKTV is expanding its technology and operations team by recruiting for three new senior roles.

The channel provider is hiring a director of technology and operations, and head of operations and a VoD architect to further its digital development.

The director of technology will report to Jan Gooze-Zijl, UKTV’s chief financial and operations Officer, who was handed an expanded remit last month.

“UKTV’s unparalleled growth in a declining broadcast market has been led by innovation and creativity. I want to create a gold standard operating model for operations and technology that will allow UKTV to realise its strategic objectives as it continues its trajectory of strong growth, said Gooze-Zijl.

“The expansion of the technology and operations teams will help us to outpace the market on innovative technology to drive viewing and revenue, increase efficiency within our linear channels business and enact a dynamic step change for our digital services.”
