THE COMPANY:

CGTN – the China Global Television Network, its six TV channels – English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Russian and Documentary, and its digital media platforms were launched on December 31, 2016.

                

CGTN Europe is a fresh multimedia news channel from a modern, purpose-built newsroom in London’s Chiswick Business Park. It will join the other regional CGTN hubs in Beijing, Nairobi and Washington DC in helping the network to set the news agenda across the UK and Europe, by broadcasting and publishing award-winning news and current affairs content that will provide a fresh take on European political, economic, social and cultural affairs.

 

THE ROLE:

We are now seeking a Digital Product Manager to join the new digital team in London.

  • Work closely with digital production teams in a multi-platform environment to meet daily deadlines and creative expectations.
  • Regular liaison with CGTN Beijing’s product team.

You will also:

  • Possess strong knowledge of the latest trends in the digital media landscape, production techniques and engineering requirements to produce technically acceptable and innovative digital products.
  • Demonstrate a willingness to embrace design and technological development in software and hardware as applied in digital production.
  • Exhibit a proven portfolio that demonstrates first-class creative talent.
  • Thrive under pressure, especially in a “start-up” broadcast centre environment.
  • Excel at work within a culturally and ethnically diverse office.
  • Chinese speaking would be a bonus.
