Job Details

We are currently working with a leading, Europe based, digital broadcast organisation that is looking for a Commissioning Editor to join it on an initial 6-month fixed-term contract basis and be responsible for developing a wide range of programming from around the world, with a main focus across the Asia region.

As Commissioning Editor, your duties will involve developing original programming ideas for the channel’s video-on-demand, digital and linear outputs. You will research global stories and concepts, seek and engage third-party production parties, receive and organise pitches and ensure that all proposals are in line with the vision of the channel.

You will focus on the delivery of the channel’s strategies, including generating and developing bold, break-out ideas and working closely with in-house and independent production partners. You will also create and maintain production calendars, supervise production schedules, budgets, cost reports, contract administration and ensure all productions follow the channel’s production guidelines and safety protocols.

To be considered for this role, candidates must have proven experience in developing and/or producing unscripted content, along with a high level of experience in a variety of television production techniques and the ability to manage the creative, logistical, budgetary and contractual aspects of long and short form content.

It is important that you have an existing network of international contacts including production companies, agents and producers.

Strong editorial skills are also essential, along with an excellent understanding of digital and social media trends.

As this role will be focused on the commissioning of Asian content, fluency in any Asian languages such as Japanese, Cantonese or Mandarin would also be highly advantageous.

If you feel you have the right skills and experience to be successful in this role, and would like to find out more, then please apply now with a copy of your Word CV along with your showreel, credits and examples of any previous work.
