Do you have superb organisational and communication skills, an interest in social media, and a desire to join the team behind Channel 4's digital acceleration strategy? 

Channel 4 is a world class entertainment brand. The Social team within 4Studio is responsible for further building our world class social media presence. 

We are looking for a stellar Content ID Assistant who can assist us in ensuring all our content published across social media is tracked, monetised, optimised, and reported correctly.You’ll have superb organisational and communication skills, with exceptional attention to detail, able to track and understand a myriad of rights positions per show, channel and platform. 

As a relatively new capability within the industry, we encourage anyone with a YouTube Rights, Video Operations, or Digital Content Management background to apply, as well as recent music/media/production tech/media graduates, or junior paralegals.

Utilisation of Content ID tools on YouTube and Facebook will be key, enabling you to police, track, block and monetise duplicate content uploaded by others, proactively identifying and communicating accounts infringing copyright on Channel 4 content on other platforms (TikTok, Instagram etc), and being reactive to counter-claims against our own published content. 

Working closely with our teams in Social, Rights, Operations and Platform Partnerships, you’ll understand the whole process, from the uploading of long-form episodic content for ‘fingerprinting’ for social, all the way through to tracking monetisation of its performance – and you’ll understand and be able to swiftly articulate problems that may arise along the way.

Responsibilities

Digital rights and content management

  • You will assist with all Content ID queries and operations for the social channels we manage
  • You’ll be reactive to claims and counter-claims we have to issue across multiple social platforms
  • You will ensure the correct rights policies are applied to each programme, on multiple social channels
  • You will work closely with the Social, Rights, Operations and Platform Partnerships teams to identify potential blockers or issues, and communicate back to all swiftly and efficiently
  • You’ll help manage and streamline the workflow of content through Channel 4 for Content ID and Digital Rights Management purposes
  • You’ll be a pivotal part of helping us report on monetisation and performance of content, aligning with Analysts to identify successes and communicate learning
  • You’ll help build close relationships with Production Company partners to allow for swift and efficient blocking (and unblocking) of content on both sides

Autonomy & Judgement

  • You will be based in Leeds, but connected closely to our other teams across our Nations & Regions offices, and eager to feedback learning across the geographical divide
  • You will need to be able to use data to feedback insights into key stakeholders

People Skills

  • You will be required to manage the sometimes competing demands of key stakeholders. Cool under pressure and excellent powers of persuasion are required.
  • You will need to be able to explain both problems and solutions in layman’s terms. This will be important when “managing upwards”

Measurement & Reporting

  • You will be required to work with Social Analysts and Social Media Managers to produce regular updates that will be shared with senior management and the executive team
  • You will work closely with Social Analysts and Social Media Managers to use data and historical performance to inform all new insights-driven strategies, and provide comprehensive wrap-up reporting on a show-by-show or channel basis
  • Whether something has gone well or badly, you will be required to learn lessons from what has been done and be able to apply those lessons, so we keep on improving
