At RELEVANT, we are committed to innovation, purpose and excellence. We are the leading platform reaching Christian twenty- and thirtysomethings, and our team is fueled by a creative spirit and spiritual mission that is reflected in every aspect of our business. And while we’re most known for our magazine and daily web content, we’ve been podcasting since 2005, and it’s a major part of our future.
Since this fall we’re launching several new podcasts in addition to our current show line-up, we are looking for an organized, motivated producer to oversee every aspect of our podcasts. The position will be responsible for every aspect of our podcasts — from planning to deployment. The position will provide planning and communications leadership, driving all day-to-day deliverables as primary internal and external manager for all of our audio products.
You'll work closely with internal teams and clients to ensure that projects are accomplished on time and on budget and that expectations are surpassed. You must be great at planning, communicating, following through and prioritizing on multiple overlapping deadlines.
Writing will also be a large part of the job, so editorial experience and the ability to quickly deliver compelling content that is written with RELEVANT's unique voice and worldview is a must.
The ideal candidate will be flexible, willing to lead, comfortable with change, and able to work with a high volume of projects. Duties will involve management of tasks, timelines, resource allocation and work trafficking. The ability to have an engaging presence on mic is a plus.
The ideal candidate is our target audience. They know what's happening in the Church, as well as culture. They have great taste in music, literature, film and design. They wrestle with hard questions, but aren't cynical. They're witty and creative. They're passionate about their faith, and about the potential of their generation to change the world. They love writing, but are equally comfortable conducting interviews and letting their personality shine on our multimedia platforms. They are passionate about RELEVANT, and get the unique combination of wit, smarts, vision, passion and taste that make it unique.
OUR IDEAL CANDIDATE
A college graduate with a communications or business degree is preferred, but someone with the right intelligence, drive, personality and aptitude is most important. Proficiency with Mac OS X, the Adobe software suite and project management software is a must. The ideal candidate is a fantastic communicator via email and in person. The ideal candidate personally reflects RELEVANT Media Group's mission and target audience.
This is a team-oriented, deadline-driven and fast-paced work environment. This is a position that will stretch you and never stops evolving. Every day, the RELEVANT team is trying to change the world for Christ, and this position is in the middle of it all.
We’re looking for someone that is loyal, smart and driven. Someone that can take on any challenge, big or small, care about it being done well and on time. Someone who wants to make an impact and grow with the company.
Serve as the primary point of contact in the successful coordination and end to end execution of all audio products.
Manage day-to-day team workflow, while recognizing potential challenges and risk factors early in the game.
Work with executive, advertising, creative, technical, strategy, and production teams to develop and maintain project schedules, provide project status, review feedback and satisfy deliverables.
