NBC News is looking for a Senior Producer to join the Engel Unit working on the team producing with NBC News’ Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel. While daily news is an essential part of our output, this role will also focus on the unit’s long form documentary efforts. So, experience in longform is a requirement.
The job will primarily be working on the multi-award winning On Assignment documentary series so the ability to shoot and edit is preferable.
A deep understanding and interest in current affairs is a requirement. And the person must show experience of working in difficult environments.
The senior producer will at times be required to work in some of the most remote and difficult places in the world and will also supervise and direct the work of producers, crews, editors, and associate producers along with local teams whilst in the field, ensuring the safety, integrity, and performance of everyone involved. Awareness of Covid protocols also needed.
Working with Richard Engel and the unit’s Executive Editor and Executive Producer you will create compelling and important stories for all platforms, primarily for broadcast.
