Job Vacancy: Senior Producer - Reuters

Location: Nairobi, Kenya

Role Summary

Reuters is looking for a talented editorial leader to manage our video operations in East Africa, based in our regional hub, Nairobi. Managing and producing regional Africa Daily content, our flagship Africa lifestyle service, is a significant part of the role. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of leading teams across multiple locations, including hostile environments. We want someone who is creative, with plenty of initiative, and is passionate about winning the big stories for a global client base that includes more than 1,100 broadcast and digital media outlets.

You will need to have a deep understanding of the East Africa region. Fluent English language skills are a must for this role. This is a leadership role which will be expected to drive the story forward on a daily basis and making a substantial contribution to the debate about how we cover our stories, what elements are needed and how they perform.

We want someone who is confident handling breaking news as well as pitching stories that go beyond the headlines and help explain to a global audience the political, socio-economic, generational, and cultural changes that are taking place in East Africa and why they matter.

A background in video newsgathering is a must, as is the ability to write clean copy under pressure of time. Video editing is also a core skill, and field experience is a definite advantage. Experience leading teams both in the field and on the desk is required. The ability to shoot video will also confer a clear advantage.

The video news industry is going through a period of significant change, largely driven by technology and the rapidly changing habits of news consumers. You will be very customer focused and an excellent communicator who is able to guide your teams to produce visually compelling content for Reuters’ clients in the growing digital sector as well as our existing broadcast news customers.
