Job Description

We are looking for someone with a picture / multimedia editing or production background to join an international news publisher for a one year contract role.

Based in the London office, you will be responsible for sourcing and editing visual content to accompany news stories, and overseeing the production process. This is a great opportunity to join an instantly recognisable global brand, and play a key role in the continual delivery of first class visual content.

The core focus of this position will be to manage the delivery of picture content to accompany news stories. This will mean filtering and selecting content from multiple sources, as well as proactively sourcing content when required. You will need strong picture editing skills, as you will need to work quickly and accurately to deliver work in short time frames. You will also have the opportunity to work on video editing tasks, as well as to hone your writing and copy-editing skills.

This is a fast paced, ever changing environment, so you will need to be able to manage your workload and juggle a constantly evolving list of tasks. This will require excellent communication and organisational skills, and the ability to build strong working relationships with both colleagues and third parties.

To be considered for the role, you must have proven experience of editing and/or producing visual content in a fast paced, high volume environment. You will need a broad knowledge of and curiosity about news, and a keen eye for spotting interesting and newsworthy content. Experience with industry standard tools and processes is required, and any experience of photography/shooting, or video content production would be beneficial. A passion for visual storytelling and multimedia production and/or editing is a must.

This is a brilliant opportunity for an enthusiastic, proactive person to join a successful international news publisher and play a key role in helping them to deliver first class content. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please contact Will Fraser at Handle Recruitment for more information.
