Producer job title

A great job title typically includes a general term, level of experience and any special requirements. The general term will optimize your job title to show up in a general search for jobs of the same nature. The level of experience will help you attract the most qualified applicants by outlining the amount of responsibility and prior knowledge required. And if your position is specialized, consider including the specialization in the job title as well. But avoid using internal titles, abbreviations or acronyms to make sure people understand what your job posting is before clicking.

Examples of Producer job titles

    Video Producer
    Digital Producer
    Video Producer/Editor
    Writer/Producer
    Podcast Producer

Producer job summary

A great job description starts with a compelling summary of the position and its role within your company. Your summary should provide an overview of your company and expectations for the position. Outline the types of activities and responsibilities required for the job so job seekers can determine if they are qualified, or if the job is a good fit.

Example of a Producer job summary

A new era has dawned in real estate, and we are at the forefront, providing high-quality video projects for our real estate clients. We are looking for a video producer to join our marketing team to create attractive and compelling digital videos and similar types of interactive online content that show real estate properties in a new light. The ideal candidate has an innate curiosity as well as a passion for real estate. This person is able to make seemingly humdrum features shine and to present everyday sights in ways that make people want to be part of them. Candidates must have excellent editorial sensibilities and at least two years of experience creating video content. Flexibility and occasional travel within four hours of our office are required.

Producer responsibilities and duties

The responsibilities and duties section is the most important part of the job description. Here you should outline the functions this position will perform on a regular basis, how the job functions within the organization and who the job reports to.

Examples of Producer responsibilities

    Collaborate with team to meet with real estate clients and determine/clarify their needs
    Create a wide variety of digital content, including tutorials, how-tos, humorous videos, short and long documentaries, home histories, home tours, listing videos and homeowner and buyer and agent interviews
    Infuse fresh life into content that could otherwise be seen as boring (for example, part of a garden tour could be done from a dog’s perspective)
    Research and storyboard video projects; prepare scripts
    Set up lighting and equipment for shoots
    Collaborate on video editing, marketing and other team functions as necessary

Producer qualifications and skills

Next, outline the required and preferred skills for your position. This may include education, previous job experience, certifications and technical skills. You may also include soft skills and personality traits that you envision for a successful hire. While it may be tempting to include a long list of skills and requirements, including too many could dissuade qualified candidates from applying. Keep your list of qualifications concise, but provide enough detail with relevant keywords and terms.

Examples of Producer skills

    A minimum of two years of video production and editing experience
    Well-versed in Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop and After Effects
    Ability to develop compelling narratives and visuals
    Good knowledge of what types of content do well on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and other social media platforms
    Excellent organizational and communication skills
    Initiative to work well alone and on teams
