Strong Internal Candidate
Your role
Are you someone who is versatile with first-rate technical skills? Are you comfortable contributing to multiple platforms – from digital to TV to radio?
If so, CBC Toronto has a terrific opportunity to tell you about: two Video Producer positions in our digital first, multi-platform local station.
If you’re one of the successful candidates, you will be someone who excels working as a collaborator, but also can work independently when needed.
You are a team player with A + communications skills who thrives in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment.

You know how to shoot high quality video and digital stills which will grab the attention of our online and broadcast audiences.
You will also have a proven proficiency working with editing systems like AVID Media Composer or Adobe Premiere Pro.
You will be as comfortable working on a stylishly produced video feature which can appear both online and on-air as you will be rushing to the scene of breaking news.
The successful candidates will need to have a deep understanding of the issues – and the diversity – of Canada’s largest city and the neighbouring region. They will also understand – from personal experience – what it’s like to deal with the challenges of being a journalist in a local Toronto newsroom.
