Social Media Producer – Asia

Thomson Reuters News & Editorial 2/1/2018 11:20:58 PM Singapore, Singapore
Job Description

Reuters is recruiting a social media producer to help source, verify and clear user-generated content (UGC) for distribution to Reuters clients. 

This is a position will allow you to work across both Video and Pictures , and presents an opportunity to work on global breaking and trending stories.

In this role you will be responsible for:

  • Social media newsgathering. The successful candidate will be an expert at navigating social networks and will have a curious, proactive and determined approach. 
  • Identifying newsworthy material posted online, taking steps to authenticate it and seeking copyright clearance. Your daytime shift pattern will also involve weekends  
  • Coordinating and working closely with a global team of social media producers. In your work you will report to the head of TV operations in Asia, under the direction of the head of UGC newsgathering.
  • Communicating clearly with other team members and working accurately under pressure. Prior experience in UGC newsgathering would be a clear advantage, as would evidence of an ability to identify breaking news and emerging trends on social media. However, as full training will be given, a willingness to learn quickly is at least as important.

Required Skills and Experience:

  • Interest in current affairs and sound news judgment
  • Familiarity with latest features of all leading social networks
  • Strong writing capabilities
  • Video editing experience
  • Track record in identifying trending content
  • Education to first degree level
