Reuters is looking for a talented Legal Video Producer with a flair for digital storytelling and an interest in legal news to join its Washington D.C. team. You will be an experienced videographer who can shoot, edit and write to tight deadlines in a fast-paced environment.

You should be excited about delving into the world of legal news, from the business of law to litigation in a number of practice areas. You will coordinate, shoot and produce interviews with lawyers and other legal experts. You will be equally comfortable writing and editing voiced packages about high-profile court filings and rulings on a daily basis.

You will be a self-starter with an unflappable temperament, who is ready to jump in front of the camera in an emergency. This is an opportunity to join a fast-growing team of passionate reporters and editors creating content for the online news platform of Thomson Reuters’ flagship legal product Westlaw.

This role is for an initial time period of six months.

In the role of Legal Video Producer you will:

• Work in a small team of multimedia journalists, to prepare, script and edit news packages and interviews for legal professionals

• Work with the legal text reporting team to create compelling videos for digital platforms

• Forward plan, pitch original stories, book guest interviews and respond to breaking news
