The Wall Street Journal is seeking a senior video journalist to produce timely international news videos as part of its global news operation in London.
Top candidates for this position will have a professional background in video journalism, demonstrate exceptional shooting and Adobe Premiere editing skills, and have extensive experience with graphics in AfterEffects and Illustrator. We are looking for someone who can add depth and context to a story and bring challenging topics to life visually on deadline.
In this role, you will cover the day's news events across a variety of subjects and juggle many tasks. Deadline pressure is a constant in our newsroom, so an ability to react quickly is essential, as is the ability to bring challenging topics to life visually.
Please note, this is not an entry-level position, and it is not a position producing documentaries. Because this is a role focused on producing timely news coverage, candidates need to show successful executions of projects that have been done in just a few hours and stand out in the 24/7 information cycle.
You will be based out of our London office. You will report to the London-based Weekend Supervising Producer.
All interested candidates should submit a cover letter clearly outlining how their skills and experience meet or exceed the key candidate requirements, along with links to five videos that
represent the type of work described. Candidates who do not submit cover letters will not be considered.
