Video Producer (Women's Professional Game)

🇬🇧 Wembley, UK
Full Time
3+ years exp.
£35,000 – £45,000 per year

There could not be a more exciting time to join the women's professional game in England. On the pitch, we continue to attract the best international talent and have the most competitive leagues in the world. Off the pitch, we've made history with over 60k watching Arsenal at The Emirates for the first time, and over a million attendances across the Barclays Women's Super League and Barclays Women's Championship combined this season. With the creation of Newco (new name pending), an independent company solely dedicated to running the top two tiers of women's football in England, we aim to transform women's football in this country and build the most distinctive, competitive, and entertaining women's football club competition in the world.

Our social media results have amazing momentum too as we recently hit the 3M cumulative follower mark, welcoming over 800k new followers to our channels this season alone. Over the next decade, as part of an accelerated league-wide growth strategy, there will be significant investment into content production and distribution and with the addition of TikTok last season and the introduction of a YouTube channel for next season, video content has never been more important.

This role is therefore a hugely important one within the Women's Pro Game (WPG) Marketing Team. Our Video Producer will be leading in executing the video strategy and owning what the future of video output looks like for the Barclays Women's Super League and Barclays Women's Championship-owned and operated channels.

The successful candidate will be part of a team tasked to elevate our content through brilliant storytelling. This means you will need a thorough understanding of what best practice means for video content across social and what makes video content engaging for our audience. You will be able to adapt quickly to our ever-growing audience and learn what content they want to be served. As well as being in the know with the latest social trends, you will also need excellent planning skills as you work within a team that operates around the women's football calendar so being able to execute content ideas to tight deadlines is a must. This position requires a creative thinker, with strong technical skills and impeccable organisational skills.

What will you be doing?

  • Overseeing both leagues' video strategy, ensuring that all video content is fit for purpose and platform.
  • Launching a new YouTube channel with agency support, ensuring that we have a strategy that sets us up for success. This may include filming, clipping, and editing videos specifically for this channel.

  • Interviewing players and scriptwriting for presenters when needed with the understanding that platforms might need different versions of scripts.
  • Analysing our content to see what resonates best with our audience and ensuring that we adapt as our audience grows.
  • Writing frequently detailed briefs to our agency design team or freelancers to ensure we have a consistent thread of video content.
  • Comply with all company policies and procedures to ensure the highest standards of health, safety and well-being can be maintained.
  • As part of The FA's commitment to ensuring a safe environment for everyone in football, every employee will be required to complete a DBS check. The level of the check required will be based on the activity of the specific job role and in line with legislation and government guidance.

What are we looking for?

  • Experienced handling Sony A7 (or similar) cameras.
  • Experienced overseeing all areas of pre-production inclusive of crewing, talent identification and PPM preparation.
  • Able to plan and manage multiple tasks with attention to detail in fast-paced situations.
  • Someone with a collaborative attitude to building relationships internally across different functions who all share a passion for transforming women's football.
