The New Statesman Media group is looking for a multi-skilled video producer to create industry-leading video content across our platforms and titles. You’ll be joining as a founding member of a new team, with an ambitious growth plan.


The successful candidate will be a producer, director and editor with demonstrable experience turning in-depth reporting into visually striking and emotionally-gripping short films. You have fine-tuned narrative sensibilities, a firm grasp of professional video production practices and experience in documentary journalism.


You’re experienced at taking ideas from development to delivery, including research & scripting, budgeting, pre-production, studio and location shooting, editing and publishing on digital platforms.


You’re equally comfortable shooting and directing solo, working with other journalists, and/or directing larger crews as required. Experience directing and creating motion graphics would be beneficial.


The ideal candidate also has experience solving commercial briefs for sponsored editorial content, and working with external production companies to deliver on proposals.


Collaboration will be key to the success of this role. We’re looking for candidates who have experience working with colleagues from a range of disciplines and are able to create successful video products that work within a network of multi-media content.


This role reports to the Executive Producer of Audiovisual Content.
