About Us

This Journalist role is for a content agency with a reputation for creating, producing and licensing incredible content to media outlets, commercial brands, and brand agencies around the world, as well as self-publishing across flagship owned and operated brands.

The diverse creative team of professional journalists, UGC video specialists and social media experts thrive on bringing amazing stories to life every day, filling the world's news feed with must-see content.

Additionally, as content producers and aggregators, they are dedicated to producing and sharing, original, engaging content for the millions of fans across their owned and operated channels.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the ever-growing editorial team, working with journalists on the fast-paced content desk, sourcing incredible of-the-moment video-based stories.

The Role

You are an outstanding Journalist who has the drive and determination to make sure you're the one to break the world's most-viewed stories.

As a crucial cog in the content team, you'll be sourcing the must-see stories of the moment before they've been seen by the world, providing leading media sites across the globe with their most-viewed content of the day.

The role is fast paced, and you'll need a careful balance of strong determination and charm to ensure you can secure the hottest stories from around the world.

You'll be working alongside a friendly team who pull together to get the work done - but you'll need to be able to also work semi-independently to source and secure your own content.

You'll also need to be able to demonstrate great attention to detail, and be able to write crisp, clear copy quickly, as well as ensure all copyright and licensing conditions are met.

About You

As a Journalist, you will have significant experience sourcing stories and will be able to produce stories to deadline independently. You'll need to have a solid understanding of the media landscape and a good commercial understanding of the industry - and be happy pitching stories to publications and negotiating fees.

It's vital you have a sparkling personality, able to talk story subjects whilst understanding the urgency of viral or breaking news. You'll be a real people person, who people instantly warm and open up to.

You will also have the skill to remain calm under pressure, and have a real desire for being the first to a story.

The desk you will be joining is dynamic and hardworking, and you must equally have a strong work ethic, willing to go the extra mile to get the job done.

As the industry is so multi-faceted, it is an advantage if you have interest and experience in sourcing and securing rights for user-generated video content, social media production or photo/video editing.
