This is a full-time role based in our London offices but you’ll be expected to get out there and make full use of location video shoot opportunities. Opportunities that you will create!

A huge part of your role involves the ideation of highly shareable original video content. Therefore, a full understanding of the end to end video production process is desirable and candidates with hands on experience in this area will have a distinct advantage. Each day, before you even get to work, you will have scoured the news for trending stories that chime with our audience. Then, as part of a daily briefing, generate or re-purpose video content that delivers the brief. This will involve organising the production of video shoots within our live radio studio and on location, with writing and editorial skills a real bonus.

You’ll be expected to take the lead in daily meetings in conjunction with the radio production team in order to produce regular social initiatives, including polls, competitions and original video production ideas.


FUBAR Radio is an online media brand that engages millions of free thinking young adults. We create live, talk-based radio and short form social video content across a range of subjects. This includes comedy, sport, current affairs, sex education, LGBT issues, music, celebrity news and much more. Unlike other national talk-radio stations, we’re NOT regulated by the broadcast watchdog. So we can afford to be outrageous, mischievous and often post watershed. In fact, it’s the type of content that can’t be found anywhere else on national live UK radio.

As well as the FUBAR Radio social channels, we also feature the FUBAR FC social channels, which deliver daily football based video content.

We’ve worked with some of the biggest names and the best of emerging talent, but in 2019 we’re expanding our schedule and taking our content to the next level. This is where you come in…

As part of our rapid anticipated expansion, we’re looking for a dynamic and creative self-starter to head up our social media department.

You must be located within easy commutable distance of north London. (The role is based at our offices in Islington, London 2 mins walk from Caledonian Road Tube).
