Looking for a super-bright and highly ambitious Junior Development Producer responsible for developing new ideas and, specifically, writing them up into treatments and pitch decks. You will learn how to package shows for sale to our beloved broadcasters across Mzansi.
Based either in Cape Town or Johannesburg, this is an initial 10-week contract, with the potential to grow the business if you have that ‘special something’ we are looking for.
AA candidate position – a young, black female filmmaker who can write and speak in vernacular and English. PWDs are welcome to apply.
Must watch lots and lots of different types of television programmes – and must be able to think of new ideas on the spot.
A scripted drama background would be advantageous.
A degree in a relevant field [e.g. film, media, communications, etc.] Or, preferably, somebody with an English degree who lives to write.
Mandatory 2-years’ television experience as a production assistant, researcher or scriptwriter.
A passion for ideating new programming ideas and working behind the camera in the business of television.
Ability to work well in a team.
Organised, self-motivated and able to solve/troubleshoot problems and ‘visualise’ the programme.
Punctuality and clear written and oral communication skills are an absolute must.
A quick learner is advantageous.
Job to commence immediately.
To reiterate, this person must be able to write and converse beautifully. First-class creative writing is required without compromise or exception. Please note that your writing and presenting abilities will be tested should you be shortlisted for interview. It is a very, very specific position that requires a meticulous eye for detail and precision – and a masterful command of the English language in written and verbal forms. Please do not send your CV in if you do not possess the required skills, as it will be picked up immediately.
If you have not heard from us by 25th September, please presume your application has been unsuccessful this time. You should wait another 12-months before applying for another position.
