Digital Content Producer
Job Title: Digital Content Producer
Department: Client Services and Studio
Reporting to: Head of Client Services and Studio
Type of Contract: Fixed term until March 2020
Working Pattern: Full time
Location: London, Camden: This is not a remote working position, and you must have the right to work in the UK.
FutureLearn is transforming access to education and is one of the world’s largest social learning platforms.
Based in London’s Camden Town, we offer online courses, programs and degrees run by over 100 leading universities from around the world including UCL, University of California Berkeley, University of Edinburgh, University of Melbourne, King’s College London, Purdue University and the University of Groningen. We also work offer online courses from specialist education providers including CIPD, UNESCO and the Raspberry PI foundation.
Since our launch in September 2013, we’ve run thousands of online courses that have attracted 9 million learners from all over the world and we have seen over 22 million enrolments. Our vision is a global community, where everyone learns together and enjoys access to the education they need to transform their lives. Our award-winning platform helps by provoking conversation around the course material so that learners and educators learn as much from each other as from the material itself.
We are continuing our expansion as we make this journey from offering short online courses, through micro credentials to full online degrees and working with employers and governments to reduce skills gaps. The pace of this change is reflected in the extremely rapid growth of our revenues.
ABOUT THE ROLE
We’re looking for an experienced multimedia Content Producer to join FutureLearn’s in-house Studio team. The FutureLearn Studio team provides creative services to FutureLearn partners and clients. This ranges from consultancy and individual elements of short courses, to end-to-end course/program design and production.
As a Digital Content Producer in the team, you’ll be responsible for driving the development of innovative and inspiring online courses. You’ll work with subject matter experts to obtain raw material and collaborate with our Learning Designers to create engaging student-centred social learning experiences. You’ll help devise production processes and workflows that allow the team to produce multiple courses in parallel. This role may require you to mentor and/or line manage junior team members, and you will need to help oversee the work of any freelancers.
The ideal candidate will have extensive hands-on production experience, strong digital storytelling acumen and the ability to craft a compelling narrative through text, graphics, audio or video. You’ll have an intrinsic understanding of content management systems (CMS) and a basic grounding in HTML and/or Markdown (though you’re unlikely to do any actual coding). If you also have technical skills in graphic design and/or video production and editing, that would be a big bonus.
You might currently be employed as a Content Producer, Learning Technologist or Educational Developer or but your title is less important to us than your mentality. We’re looking for someone who is passionate and knowledgeable about online learning, web design, user experience and accessibility principles. Ideally, you will have some knowledge of current pedagogical practices and debates about social learning and will be eager to apply these in the hands-on development of online distance learning qualifications.
We’re looking for a driven individual – someone who loves breaking down complex problems and who is committed to meeting project deadlines and establishing efficient ways of working.
Please apply with your CV and cover letter by midnight 16th July.
