What it’s like working at CBC/Radio-Canada

At CBC/Radio-Canada, we create content that informs, entertains and connects Canadians on multiple platforms. Our successes and accomplishments are driven by embodying and upholding values, which include creativity, integrity, inclusiveness and relevance.

Do you think you have the ability and drive to keep up with this exciting, ever-changing industry? Whether it be in front of the camera, on air, online or behind the scenes, you would be joining a team that thrives on making connections and telling stories that are important to Canadians.

This is a full time temporary opportunity until September 2020. It involves shift work which includes evenings and weekends.

Your role

You love to check out the latest innovative interactive making the social media rounds (logging it, perhaps, as inspiration for future projects.) You devour the news. You’re excited about the possibilities that digital offers. You love the craft of writing and feel privileged to tell people’s stories. You’re tapped in to local communities and want to give them a voice. You listen and know that no detail is too small to get right. You ask why — a lot. You doggedly pursue stories and feel comfortable working on your own, but know that news is collaborative. You want to work as part of a team to provide the best content. You’re not happy with the bare minimum of effort, instead taking every story one step further. You may not know all of CBC’s online tools but you’re technically adept and willing to learn. Your true love is the written word, but you are keen to try radio and TV so you can understand their needs when gathering your own stories.

If this is you, we’d love for you to apply for our online reporter position.
