HERE’S WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR IN AN ASSISTANT PRODUCER:

Fully Remote and Full Time.

Hashtag Our Stories is looking for an Assistant Producer to work across our various daily shows and projects, researching and helping tell amazing stories that you feel need to be shared in short, dynamic documentary-style videos and that appeal to a younger, 13-to-24-year-old audience. As an Assistant Producer, you’ll have lots of space to grow as you learn new skills and better storytelling, and take on bigger responsibilities.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

Working closely with a team of talented producers / journalists and excellent editors on every step of the process of finding, researching and telling great stories. Every day you’ll be pitching new, unique story ideas, reaching out to organise and conduct interviews with subjects, researching with great attention to detail and getting the facts straight with thorough fact checking. 

You’ll join a specific team with a focus on one of our shows: Our Stories, Our Money, Our Minds, Our Survivors, Our India, Our Health or First Person. Check out the brief descriptions above and make sure to check out each show on Snapchat to see where your interests lie.

ESSENTIAL SKILLS

Crucially, you should be fully immersed in current trends and global news, and have a real passion for stories about people positively changing the world. A person who would really excel at this job would be great at on-time delivery, working in a team, organisation and having a passion for telling the kind of stories they’d like to watch. 

A journalism or media degree is preferred but not required as long as you can show that you have the skills and passion with a good portfolio of work.
