The Wall Street Journal is seeking a coordinating producer to help oversee and produce coverage in our London video hub.

Top candidates for this position will demonstrate excellent editorial, production and team-management skills. While you will work with the international executive producer to oversee production on this team, this is a hands-on role. We are seeking a strong editor and journalist with a track record of producing timely business and markets news as well as political and industry analysis, who can work independently to create video that stands out in the 24/7 information cycle.

Primary responsibilities include:

  • Proposing new and original ideas for timely coverage on a daily basis;
  • Working with the executive producer and a team of video journalists to produce news and analysis and social news videos of interest to The Wall Street Journal audience;
  • Coaching beat reporters and news editors to appear on camera or in voiceover;
  • Working with video journalists to hone story angles and strengthen scripts;
  • Researching, writing and producing coverage on a regular basis;
  • Providing clear and productive notes on scripts and videos in edit;
  • Ensuring that all journalistic and legal standards are followed at all times;
  • Ability to work late hours and weekends as news developments and time zone considerations may warrant; and
  • Completing additional duties as assigned.

Key candidate requirements:

  • Six years of experience working in a daily video news environment would be advantageous;
  • Deep understanding of business and markets trends, regional news, culture and politics;
  • Demonstrated experience producing compelling business, tech and political coverage under tight deadline constraints;
  • Track record of translating complex business and economics stories into reporting that informs WSJ’s core subscriber base and appeals to broader audiences;
  • Clear communicator with exceptional written and collaboration skills; and
  • Unrestricted ability to work in the UK.
