We’re looking for a talented video-storyteller with a passion for global news to join the international digital video team in London.
CNN’s Digital Video News team creates digital-first content for all CNN platforms, spanning everything from short and arresting breaking news pieces to in-depth features, explainers, interactives, and enterprise reporting. Our aim is to bring the international news agenda to a digital audience with visual content that reflects CNN’s mission, to be the world’s most essential, reliable and engaging global destination for what’s happening in our world today. Whether it’s natural disasters and elections, inequality, the climate crisis or news-making cultural events, we tell human-centered stories across the full gamut of CNN’s editorial verticals, with the aim of informing, inspiring and engaging the largest global digital audience in news today.
The Producer will be a key member of the CNN video organization, developing and producing video content that will resonate across all CNN’s digital platforms. This role will primarily be responsible for international news coverage, including breaking news and topical features. This producer will work closely with the Senior Producer of News and CNN International’s digital and newsgathering teams to bring our world’s most important issues to a digital audience. An interest in the bigger picture, strategy and commissioning as well as video production is required for someone in this role.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Producing digital videos end-to-end – including pitching, writing, shooting and editing.
  • Supporting the Senior Producer of News in daily assignments and supervision.
  • Monitoring breaking news, live events and search/social trends.
  • Working collaboratively across the global organization to cover breaking news and important topical issues.
  • Experimenting with new video formats on multiple platforms to push the envelope and reach new audiences.
  • Shooting video in-house and in the field for breaking news and news features.
  • Collaborating with newsgathering and international correspondents to produce digital content remotely.
  • Coordinating with CNN’s global network of digital writers, producers and designers to develop new forms of visually dynamic and interactive storytelling.

What we’re looking for:

  • Talented video-storyteller with a passion for international news.
  • Previous experience of working in an international or major media market.
  • Understanding of news values and a love for journalism.
  • Experience reporting and fact-checking stories and characters.
  • Passion for pushing the envelope with new formats and styles.
  • Strong writing, communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Strong knowledge of current industry-standard video equipment (Example: FS7).
  • Expertise in post-production software such as Adobe Premiere or similar.
  • Must be able to work holidays, weekends, overnights and extended hours as the news cycle and deadlines require.

Desirable:

  • An additional language will be beneficial but not essential
