Talented, investigative and strategic content Producer or content leader looking for an exciting new opportunity? Could this be a match? I’m looking for someone who can keep this dynamic and successful business content leader ahead of the game in terms of both topicality, content, engagement, speakers, and the leading-edge and creative use of event/broadcast/digital formats… someone journalistic in their approach, commercial in their understanding.
Organisation and context
Our client is a young but established, dynamic and rapidly growing media, broadcast and events company. Their offering is a top-level business online community (supply chain/digital transformation), supported by content focussed live/virtual events - and more recently have taken their digital content to a whole new level via a multi-format TV style offering … exciting times indeed. Following a very successful 2021 which saw them adapt rapidly and successfully to utilising the content and delivery opportunities presented, they are now looking to build on this further, and have created an exciting new role of Head of Content.
Last year was met with vigour and creativity by this company – who modified and extended their content offering for their senior level audience (of over 50,000 international business leader members) beyond live events by embracing online and broadcast channels, and more creative and engaging ways of presenting business ‘stories’. Events, podcasts, interviews, on-demand platforms – creatively using full range of engagement channels. At the heart of their content is ‘a great and relevant story’ – alongside a great way of telling it – their specialist sector is within supply chain/smart manufacturing/digital transformation – their audience ever more critically aware of the necessity for innovation, forward thinking, shared information and inspiration – and this company look to be ahead of the game providing it.
Your role will be strategic and hands-on - you’ll enhance the content generation processes, liaise with key clients and work closely with the Chairman to ensure content and channels are leading edge, engaging and relevant, as well as developing and launching new products. The role requires a journalistic approach, backed up with a commercial eye … able to research and design agendas – both big and small – engaging with and recruiting top speakers and contributors – working closely with sponsors on their messaging and content … You’ll be able to find and develop great stories around great people and businesses. You’ll report directly into the Chairman, and be responsible for the management of a Producer and a Commissioning editor.
As will be clear from the above, we’re looking for someone pretty talented and dynamic in their approach and thinking. A real content champion. A creative and intelligent thinker, commercially aware, engaging and a naturally respected leader. Specifically we are looking for:
- Proven track record within commercial conference production
- Supply chain, digital transformation, smart manufacturing sector experience all beneficial
- Track record of innovation in content development, and strong vision and proven leadership qualities
- Strong experience in topic (and event) validation
- Ideally track record of taking events to the next level of development to larger scale – and experience of varied content formats for delivery
- Highly organised, clear, concise communicator, stives for excellence in everything you do
- Ideally (but not essential) experience of training and managing successful Producers
- Independent, accountable and self-motivated
This is a great opportunity – and would suit someone who is a true content leader – either just looking to step up into their rightful role, or already there and looking for a new and innovative home for their talents - bright, capable and ambitious … if this is you please let us know about you by clicking APPLY now…
