Job Description

Reuters Video News is looking for a talented and versatile Visuals Journalist to join the Asia Video team in Singapore.

It's a role that combines field work and desk work. You will travel on assignment - often at short notice - to major stories across the region, where you will shoot, deliver live coverage, edit, report and produce.

When not on assignment, you will be part of the production team in Singapore, scripting and editing stories.

The successful candidate must be competent in the full range of multimedia skills – filming, editing, scripting and taking photographs. A passion for visual storytelling is a must.

You must be able to work calmly under pressure and against tight deadlines to produce a top-notch file for our clients. Strong news judgment and the ability to help dig out a story when there appears to be none are essential. You must be a team player with excellent communication skills, an unflappable temperament and a demonstrable passion for news gathering and visual storytelling.

You will be a proven self-starter with the ability to build a strong rapport with colleagues in the bureaux and in different departments across editorial and sales.

You must have a global perspective to go with your intimate knowledge of the stories in the Asia region. You need to be flexible enough to deal with a fast-moving business which can involve long working hours and the need to travel at short notice.
