Job Vacancy: Desk Editor - NBC

Location: London, UK

NBCUniversal is looking for Desk Editors who are responsible journalists with several years experience for a full time role on the newsgathering team based in London. The desk editor will be at the core of NBC News’ international operation, working alongside the Senior Desk Editors in coordinating and supporting teams in the field and in the newsroom as they produce content for all platforms of NBC News, including TODAY, Nightly News, MSNBC, NBC News Digital, and a new international service.

They will provide a variety of editorial and production support to the senior desk editors, producers and executive producers, including organizing lives and pre-tapes, setting up interviews, deploying personnel - all while keeping the organization and field teams up-to-date with the latest developing news stories and video.

Candidates must understand the power of visual storytelling both on air and online and the importance of social media as an integral part of newsgathering and reporting. They will ideally be familiar with video transmissions from the field and will be comfortable editing short video clips to send to field teams or across the network.

The successful candidate is creative, curious, efficient, and a problem-solver. They thrive under the pressure of breaking news: able to confirm and deliver stories to all platforms rapidly without sacrificing journalistic integrity. They will need to be meticulous and have excellent attention-to-detail to keep across all the work that goes on for the International Desk daily.
