What it’s like working at CBC/Radio-Canada
At CBC/Radio-Canada, we create content that informs, entertains and connects Canadians on multiple platforms. Our successes and accomplishments are driven by embodying and upholding values, which include creativity, integrity, inclusiveness and relevance. 
Do you think you have the ability and drive to keep up with this exciting, ever-changing industry? Whether it be in front of the camera, on air, online or behind the scenes, you would be joining a team that thrives on making connections and telling stories that are important to Canadians.
Your role
CBC Edmonton is looking for a Senior Producer to lead our visual storytelling efforts across platforms.
Reporting to the Executive Producer, News, the successful candidate will plan, conceive, organize, and/or develop the production and realization of compelling visual content to CBC’s digital, social and television platforms. An editorial leader in the newsroom, the Senior Producer is an advocate for the creative use of video and other visual storytelling techniques, and will be responsible for developing and implementing a comprehensive video engagement strategy.
We are looking for a dynamic individual with experience and knowledge of digital, broadcast and social media strategies, an understanding of how audiences consume content across platforms and a desire to experiment with new forms of storytelling. You will help reshape the role of video in the digital age, exploring ways to add context around major stories of the day, and extending our television brand to digital and social platforms.
In this role, you will collaborate with the assignment desk to direct video producers and video journalists to cover breaking news and enterprise stories, and coordinate the efforts of all employees engaged in video storytelling on behalf of CBC Edmonton. You will work closely with our journalists and producers assigned to our supper-hour, late night and weekend television news, as well as to our digital and social media platforms. You will help determine appropriate story treatments, follow up on the execution and provide mentorship and coaching, and you will play a key role in the rollout of editorial projects, investigations and events such as elections and provincial budgets. You will track our results, use them to refine our approach to video and share what you learn with your colleagues. 
You will play an integral role in the Local Services strategy with a focus on three priorities:
Content: In this role, you will ensure that all CBC journalistic standards are met and that our stories are fair, balanced, accurate, thoughtful, immediate and resonate with the communities we serve. You will further our original, enterprise and investigative storytelling and ensure we are talking about what matters most to people throughout Edmonton. You’re innovative and will champion new story treatments and new workflows, and will help create a diverse range of content on our TV, digital and social platforms. You’re not afraid to take creative risks, and you inspire others to do the same.
Community: As the industry shifts, local news and community storytelling is more important than ever. You will understand the diverse and changing population in Edmonton and the importance of reflecting all our communities in our content. 
Culture: You live and promote an inclusive and respectful work culture. You have a solid understanding of the diverse culture of Edmonton.


As Senior Producer of video content, you will bring the following skills and experience to the CBC:

  • University degree or equivalent.
  • Minimum seven years recent experience in a multi-platform news environment.
  • Strong journalistic skills.
  • Substantial experience vetting, editing, fact-checking and packaging digital and video content.
  • Superior leadership, coaching and mentoring skills, with the demonstrated ability to mentor and encourage creativity.
  • Ability to assign, manage staff, coordinate with other departments in a productive manner, and mediate disputes as they arise.
  • Highly developed video production skills, including strong ability to produce a variety of program formats and experience in field production.
  • High-level knowledge of legal and ethical issues related to journalism.
  • Extensive knowledge of the issues and diverse communities of the Edmonton area.
  • Experience and proven ability to package video content in compelling and innovative ways.
  • Ability to manage large volumes of fast-moving information and ensure material is directed appropriately.
  • Knowledge of user-generated content and social media techniques and policies.
  • Excellent news judgment and ability to work effectively under 24/7 online newsroom deadline pressure.
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Strong team player.
  • Advanced skills in iNews, Dalet, DTV, Avid MediaCentral and NewsCutter, Polopoly, Photoshop and MPX, as well as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat and Twitter.
  • Canadian Press style; knowledge of style an asset.
