CBC Nunavut is looking for self-starters who love to tell stories... all kinds of stories. This is an excellent opportunity to find and tell the great stories of our region to a local and national audience.

This is an unparalleled opportunity to work on impact journalism, stories that make it almost daily to the national news... food security, climate change, the Northwest passage, tuberculosis. Nunavut is a place to build your career quickly.  There is nothing mundane about this job.

This is also an unparalleled opportunity to explore a cultural history and experience that is unique to Canada...the Far North, and the Inuit way of life. Many leaders within the CBC had their start in the North and would say it has shaped their vision of themselves, their community and their country.

Your role

As an Assignment Producer, your primary focus is to plan, conceive, organize, and develop the production and realization of news programming for on-line, radio and television at CBC in Nunavut. You are responsible for ensuring that work adheres to CBC journalistic and/or program policies, standards and practices. You will play a key role in the development and mentoring of new journalists.

You will play an integral role in the Local Services strategy with a focus on three priorities:

  • Content: In this role, you will ensure that all CBC journalistic standards are met and that our stories are fair, balanced, accurate, thoughtful, immediate and resonate with the communities we serve. You’re innovative and will champion new story treatments and new workflows, and will help create a diverse range of content on our radio, television, digital and social platforms. You’re not afraid to take creative risks, and you inspire others to do the same.
  • Community: As the industry shifts, local news and community storytelling is more important than ever. You will understand the diverse and changing population across Nunavut and the importance of reflecting all our communities in our content.  This is a place where you will question the very essence of what is news.  It will change your lens.
  • Culture: You live and promote an inclusive and respectful work culture. You have an understanding of the diverse culture of northern Canada.  You are open to having your world view turned upside down, from a square view to a circular one.

We are looking for a candidate with the following:

  • University degree in journalism or an equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • Relevant journalistic experience in on-line, radio and TV news.
  • Proficiency with on-line, radio and TV production and presentation technologies.
  • Knowledge of, and interest in, the culture and politics of Inuit and the north.
  • Computer skills.
  • Creative mind.
  • Ability to work well under pressure and to manage multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Proven, strong leadership, mentoring and coaching abilities.
  • Ability to establish and maintain excellent interpersonal relations.

Candidates may be subject to skills and knowledge testing.
