Middleweight Content Producer (Social Media)


Creative, Project Management
Malmesbury - United Kingdom


The Social Media Content team is a growing team in the creative department and we’re looking for a Content Producer to join our relatively new but experienced group of talented makers of engaging content for social platforms. 
A Content Producer’s responsibility is to support in the day to day running of Dyson’s global Social Media Content projects, from initial brief through to final delivery of global Master assets. It is their responsibility to ensure the team is clear on what deliverables are required and the parameters within which they must be delivered. Producers must ensure we deliver on time and to budget. This role is primarily responsible for the delivery of assets for use in Paid, Earned and Owned channels, which are optimised for the context (platforms and audience) in which they are intended to be viewed. 
Whilst there is not a film-making function to the role, you will need to work closely with film production teams to ensure that both the moving image and static assets being produced for use in social are fit for purpose and available when needed. As a Producer, you will work closely with more senior Producer colleagues, who will be there to support you and your development in the role.
