ABOUT CROWD NETWORK

We are an ambitious podcast network based in Manchester that specialises in unforgettable stories and personalities. Using the best presenters, producers and writers, we create conversations you have to share.

Podcasts become communities when listeners feel they belong. We make ground-breaking audio that makes people feel part of something bigger than themselves.

We created Murder in House Two, American Vigilante, dot com, We Didn’t Start the Fire and The Secret History of Flight 149. We’ve had 10 million downloads and have recently launched a Crowd Stories channel on Apple to showcase our trailblazing documentary titles.

We’re now looking for another brilliant producer to bring unique and exceptional ideas to continue this trajectory.

At Crowd, we are welcoming, inclusive and collaborative. Therefore, we are particularly keen to hear from applicants that are underrepresented in the podcast and media industry, such as those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds or those with disabilities.

ABOUT THE ROLE

This is a brilliant opportunity for a highly skilled and experienced audio producer who wants to join an exciting high-growth company in a full-time role.

You will play a key part in the next phase of Crowd. You will be producing Crowd Stories titles, making unforgettable documentaries about the stories of our lifetime. You will come up with brilliant, new concepts to drive Crowd forward.

The Stories Producer will embody the Crowd values of excellence, trailblazing and inclusivity in everything they do. Above all else, you have to show us you have the right attitude. You will have to leave your ego at the door. No problem is too small and no project is too big.

At Crowd Network there is no typical day. You have to be prepared for anything but the role will include:

People: Producing podcasts with high-profile presenters.

Arranging interviews with people who have incredible stories to tell. You will have to build trust, manage sensitive information and create the right environment for stories to be shared.

Liaising with the Crowd team to plan the marketing, social media and PR campaign for podcasts.

Audio: Recording, editing and mixing the highest-quality audio

Ideas: Writing scripts and story arcs for an eight-part series, or structuring a new show that can re-imagine the genre altogether.

 

THE JOB MIGHT BE RIGHT FOR YOU IF….

You’re a storyteller.

You have experience working as a journalist or documentary maker.

You are an experienced content creator who can work independently and manage time effectively. You can prioritise your workload and you get stuff done.

You are a people person. You can communicate effectively and are patient, level-headed and cool under pressure.

You are motivated and driven. You’re going to take ownership of your podcasts from concept through to publication.

You have a good knowledge of the podcast industry and work well in creative environments. You understand this is a thriving industry and want to be at the forefront of it.

 

PACKAGE

Our podcasts are recorded in Manchester and London. With remote working now the norm, location is less important than it once was and we encourage applications from all over.

However, we are a Manchester-based company so we are particularly keen to hear from people in the North West, or those willing to relocate.

The salary for the role is £35k – £45k, dependent on experience.

HOW TO APPLY:

Email careers@crowdnetwork.co.uk quoting CNSP2022 in the subject line with the following:

Your CV, cover letter and 250 words on the best documentary-style podcast you’ve listened to in the last 12 months. We want to know what you liked about it, and what you’d change to make it even better.

Applications close on Friday 8th April.
