Full Time

Reach plc has an opening for a Niche Video Content Producer. If you are someone who knows how to create fun, attention grabbing, and engaging video content with a splash of graphics and motion infographics - we want to hear from you!

If you're lovely to deal with, enthusiastic, great on detail and love to be creative then becoming part of Reach Plc's new niche content team is the perfect opportunity for you. Some experience of working in a video environment (commercial or editorial) is preferable to any particular formal qualification but we are also looking for people with bags of potential and enthusiasm.

This role will be home based, so the sucessful candidate can be based anywhere within the UK.

So, who are Reach - and most importantly what is 'TeamNiche'

You'll be joining an ambitious, experienced yet experimental line-up right at the start of the venture have launched two brand new social media sites already (TeamDogs and 2Chill) and now is the time to recruit the best people with the right skills and attitude to make them fly.

If you prefer to disrupt, rather than be disrupted, then this is for you. We have roles across editorial, customer, product, video - we will look to recruit on potential as much as experience, and attitude as much as academics.

We're TeamNiche and our niche is brilliant people.

We believe in offering you ways to work which give you a good work/life balance - and you'll never be on your own. Our new way of working keeps our people in the communities we serve, ensuring our coverage reflects real life, every day. You'll be part of a team where everyone wants to see their colleagues succeed, with regular in-person meet ups, and constant training and development opportunities. You can play a role in helping to shape the future of journalism.

What else should I know?

Whilst not predominantly a location filming role, you'll occasionally need to do product shoots (like unboxings and reviews) so you'll need strong camera skills and an eye for detail.

Combining that with making video from existing material and often sourcing it. This is about short, snappy video content rather than traditional corporate video.

We want to hear from you if you're confident talking to video participants, technically excellent in video production as well as commercially and legally aware.

The Ideal Candidate
  • You will know how to devise creative concepts that use video to drive audience engagement.
  • Create video clips to a high standard and deliver various versions tailored for relevant platforms.
  • Source social video, using legally or commercially available clips from a variety of sources.
  • Experience of working with Adobe Premiere Pro / After Effects or similar is essential.
  • You understand all kinds of video formats and delivery methods.
  • You're fabulous to work with and learn from.
  • You don't mind being in front of camera from time to time.
