Associate Producer - Insight

Full time vacancy for Associate Producer – SBS TV – Insight

SBS is one of the most unique media organisations in the world today. A media network for all Australians, we have a strong mandate to support, celebrate and appreciate the diversity of Australia’s multicultural society. Our purpose is to inspire social cohesion. SBS is an increasingly important voice in mainstream media that helps blend universal Australian values and stories with those of the migrant, Indigenous and diverse communities.

Insight is Australia's leading forum for ideas and powerful first-person stories, offering a unique perspective on news and current affairs.  Each week, we examine a single topic bringing together, in one forum, people with personal experience on an issue as well as experts and those with strong opinions. We front the Tuesday night line-up current affairs line-up, alongside Dateline and The Feed.

Insight is known for challenging expectations by exploring topics that no one else does. It’s all underpinned by exhaustive research and a commitment to fair and balanced reporting. With that in mind, we are looking for an Associate Producer to join the Insight team. You will use your strong journalism skills and a broad knowledge of national, international affairs and popular culture to come up with fresh and imaginative ideas for the program. The primary responsibility of the role is to chase and secure talent to appear on the show and support producers.

You’ll be ready for your next big challenge and come equipped with:

  • Hands-on industry experience researching long-format programs
  • Enthusiasm to research and interview across a broad range of topics
  • Fantastic written, verbal and interpersonal skills
  • Exceptional organisational skills and ability to work under pressure
  • This is a deadline-driven role. You will be required to deliver to deadline
  • The nature of the work suits self-starters who can effectively manage their own time
  • Ability to generate fresh and imaginative ideas for program forums and a natural curiosity about everything is a plus.
  • An understanding of the importance of digital audiences and ideas on how to drive content online

At SBS, we embrace difference and we welcome applications from people of all backgrounds. We want your vibrancy, language, culture, energy experiences, and abilities to brighten our halls, light up our screens and strengthen our team. We strongly encourage people of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander backgrounds to apply.
