Digital Producer, Reuters, London
Can you turn an 800-word text story into a 100-word video script? Are you able to pick the best 30-second soundbite from an hour-long news conference? Do you instinctively spot the one visual moment of the day that will be shared on social? If yes, then Reuters has the perfect opportunity for you.
We’re looking for freelance digital producers with excellent video editing skills and experience creating multimedia content for online and social platforms.

- Be able to write to pictures, choose the best soundbite and think creatively
- Ensure your work is accurate, timely and impartial
