Your role

We are looking for an Executive Producer for CBC’s French Services in Sudbury. The selected candidate will be in charge of managing employees as well as the daily assignments for the news team.

Under the overall authority of  management there is a regular and ongoing requirement for Executive Producers to plan, direct, and co-ordinate the work of others, effectively communicate the strategic objectives, and oversee the development of the team and its performance.

As the position is utilized where there is sufficient scale and scope of responsibility to imagine and create processes to deliver against the organization’s strategic priorities, the Executive Producer is expected to have strong and proven leadership abilities and a high level of competence in the field or activity in which they work.

The job requires the highest level of creative thinking and an ability to originate and develop innovative program or production concepts as well as techniques and procedures consistent with an integrated content company, and to work strategically with internal and external partners.

While the job requires the ability to think strategically, the Executive Producer must also be able to make immediate decisions in complex and stressful environments, and has ultimate accountability for programming and platform results.

Work must adhere to CBC Journalistic and/or program policies, standards and practices, and the Executive Producer must lead their staff or units to ensure that this occurs.

Key Tasks:

  • The Executive Producer is in charge of assigning daily tasks to the French news team in Sudbury and Northern Ontario.
  • The Executive Producer is responsible for resource allocation and is accountable for business outcomes.
  • Responsible for team development by providing mentorship and opportunities to personnel, or as assigned by Management, including program and production personnel, and freelance contributors. This includes ongoing feedback and the utilization of the PMSD process.
