The Department:
We eat, sleep and breathe pop culture, have a strong understanding of social media and a desire to make people swipe, share and laugh out loud.


The role:

Comedy Central UK is looking for a smart, funny, internet-obsessed Multiplatform Producer to help promote our shows across social media platforms.


The role would suit a digital native with experience in a fast-paced, creative environment, particularly those with a background in social media and entertainment.


We’re looking for someone with a unique voice that fits the Comedy Central brand, coupled with a passion for creating, dissecting and consuming all kinds of content.


Accountabilities and Responsibilities:
 Work closely with the Shows Editor and editorial team to create platform-specific content, making the most of shows like Friends, Rick & Morty, Takeshi’s Castle and Your Face Or Mine across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
 You’ll get stuck into a bit of everything - from planning to writing copy, video editing and reporting.
 You’ll be responsible for producing and posting social content across Comedy Central’s digital platforms, including creation of original video and multimedia assets.
 Using your strong editing and fact-checking skills you’ll ensure all content is on point and on brand.
 Deliver assets to international teams to ensure global promotion of Comedy Central’s shows.
 Your proven success in building and growing social audiences for digital brands will enable you to contribute to the growth of our audiences.

 A multi-tasker. Prepared to juggle multiple responsibilities, deadlines and personalities in a fast-paced environment focused on quality, adapting swiftly to a changing landscape.
 A team player. Able to communicate and collaborate with editors and writers across all platforms, video producers, designers, sales and marketing and business development.
 Super organised. A short-term and long-term planner who’s unlikely to panic when something inevitably goes wrong.
 Business aware. Comfortable coming up with creative solutions to tailor content to advertisers.
 A data geek. Comfortable compiling regular reports for the digital team, highlighting top performing posts and reminding the edit team of best practices.
 Funny. And a fan of Comedy Central.
