Producer, Current Affairs (Get Rea! and CNA Signatures)

Description
The team behind CNA documentary series like 'Inside Maximum Security', 'Undercover Asia’, and ‘Write of Passage’ is looking for a full-time Producer.
In our parlance, a Producer is overall in-charge of forming the beat sheet and writing the shoot script, directing the shoot, crafting the edit script and overseeing post-production.
If you are a good communicator, a problem solver, a stickler for facts, a team player with a healthy respect for deadlines, and carry a positive vibe to boot, we want you!

You should have at least some experience working on long-form FACTUAL programmes and observational documentaries - minimally productions that are 23 minutes or longer.
We won’t lie. It will be a challenging job that will squeeze the juices out of your left and right brain. On any given project and at any given stage, you will need to roll with the punches that come with our iterative process of crafting documentaries - creatively synergising inputs and criticisms from two Executive Producers and possibly a Series Lead, and harness the creative energies of your crew, video editor, assistant producer and other team members. Even if project members assigned to your project are nonchalant, you need to be their shiny beacon of enthusiasm and direction to drag everyone towards your end goal - to make your documentary sing in the intense competition for eyeballs, while following your true north as a journalist.

Our team produces mostly documentary mini-series, each episode about one-hour long on TV with commercial breaks. Our content go on Channel NewsAsia on TV and online, as well as on MeWatch and Youtube. Occasionally, they also get picked up by Netflix and other broadcasters. Below are some of our recent works for your reference:
