Who we are:

Triangle News is an award-winning independent national news, features, pictures and video agency supplying high quality content to British and international media companies. We are a highly professional and young team and we are keen to make our mark on the world of journalism.

Opportunity Overview:

Are you passionate about video content? Do you spend your time scrolling through TikTok, Twitter and Instagram looking for newsworthy videos? Can you spot an amazing video before it goes viral?

Triangle News is seeking a motivated candidate for a brand new role within the business. We are looking for a Video Discovery Producer to report directly to the highly experienced editorial team. The Video Discovery Producer will be responsible for finding attention-grabbing videos that can be turned into compelling content for Triangle News’ clients in the UK and around the world.

The ideal candidate will already have an understanding of what type of videos do well on sites like Mail Online, The Sun Online, Ladbible and the New York Post. They will have an understanding of the media landscape in the UK and abroad. They will also understand the legalities of delivering video and be IPSO compliant. The role is flexible with a mixture of office-based and home-based working available. 

What you’ll be doing:

As a Video Discovery Producer your primary role will be sourcing incredible user-generated content around the UK and internationally, contacting copyright holders on social media platforms such as TikTok, Instagram and Facebook, for permission.

You must have expert knowledge of these social media platforms and more. You will have a keen eye for discovering the next trending visual story and know how to investigate where social media content originated from using appropriate vetting techniques.

You will be expected to find engaging, timely visual stories and social posts to highlight the best content discovered from social platforms. Videos will range from hilarious animals, shocking transformations, wild weather, breaking news, crime and anything in between. 

You will report directly to the editorial team, many of whom have decades of experience at national newspapers. As part of a new team within the business there is a fantastic opportunity to make the role your own, take on additional responsibility and grow within the team.

This role is perfect for a young up-and-coming star at a national news desk or local paper website who is looking for their next challenge. Passion for videos, news and the industry will go a long way.
