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 young team and we are keen to make our mark on the world of journalism.
Are you passionate about video content? Do you spend your time scrolling through TikTok, Twitter and Instagram looking for newsworthy videos? Can you spot amazing videos, from breaking news to unique life-hacks, before they go viral?
Triangle News is seeking a motivated candidate to join our expanding business. We are looking for a Video Reporter to report directly to the highly experienced editorial team. The Video Reporter 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 are published on sites like Mail Online, Sun Online, Ladbible and the New York Post. They will have knowledge 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 Video Reporter your primary role will be sourcing incredible visual content from around the UK and internationally, via social media and other sources, then contacting copyright holders and clearing rights agreements before producing news copy to send out on our news wire.
You must have expert knowledge of social media platforms. 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, life-hacks, property transformations, fashion fails, parenting exploits, wild weather, wacky relationships, weird bodies, 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.
