Location: Beijing, China
Position Type: Full Time
Contract Length: 12 Months

We’re recruiting foreigners to join us in our architecturally designed headquarters in Beijing. Beijing is one of the world’s greatest cities, full of rich culture and history, and friendly locals. It’s a great place to live and China is a great country to explore.

Here at CGTN we understand the importance of delivering high caliber news. From our headquarters in Beijing and production centers in Nairobi, Washington DC and London we are committed to covering the world, and our global reach enables us to resource news quickly.

With an international team of professionals from more than 70 countries and regions, CGTN is an investment in the future of news media.

Our Guest Bookers are highly organized multitaskers who thrive on the buzz of a fast-paced news environment. They are news savvy, have a deep interest in current domestic and foreign events, can deal with intense deadline pressure, and have the ability to react to breaking news with smart programming and creative storytelling.

Fundamentally, this role is responsible for coordinating and managing guest booking for daily coverage and breaking news. No two days will be the same, in this role you will find and pitch day-to-day story ideas, help manage logistics for guests, and manage future planning for big concept ideas. This is an exciting opportunity and will also involve coordination with shows and platforms across CGTN on network wide initiatives and planning.

To succeed in this role, you are someone who is tuned into the day's lead news stories and can work through breaking news situations. You have the ability to pivot to manage competing priorities throughout the day; you are an “ideas” person who possesses excellent communication skills, and a collaborative team player.

  • A bachelor’s degree and at least 2 years post graduate relevant work experience (required to obtain Visa)
  • Previous work experience in a media organization (preferably network or cable news)
  • Strong written and oral English communication skills
  • Significant contacts for researching and booking high profile guests
  • Strong editorial judgment
  • Expert knowledge of social media and the competitive digital news environment
  • Demonstrable experience with pitching timely, smart segments and execute an idea from start to finish
