Creative Producer – For the Future

Applications are now open to join the production team for the Australian Youth Representative to the United Nations’ podcast – For the Future. The podcast is a platform for the Australian Youth Representative and UN Youth Australia to highlight the incredible stories of young people across the country.

The Producer will assist the core production team & the Youth Representative with day-to-day planning and organisation, alongside providing creative input and feedback. Initially, the Producer will assist with the regular production of podcast episodes, but ideally will take a longer-term focus for storytelling during the Youth Representative Listening Tour in 2021.

The Producer will be responsible for:

  • Initial editing for interviews with podcast guests;
  • Creative development of episode structures & narratives;
  • Assisting with detailed final episode edits;

  • Ability to work to deadlines;
  • Ability to communicate effectively and with clarity;
  • Ability to provide honest and constructive feedback.

Experience and interest in audio production, journalism, or creative writing are desirable, but not a requirement. 

The expected time commitment for the role is between 3-5 hours a week in the short term, with the potential for greater involvement should the role require it. The Producer will be expected to be involved weekly until the end of the first series, roughly scheduled to be early February, with the option to extend into the second series, running until mid-2021.

The Producer will be overseen by the Chief Youth Representative Officer and the Chief Communications Officer. The role will require regular meetings and consistent contact with the Youth Representative and the production team.

At UN Youth Australia, we educate over 15,000 young Australians each year about international issues and the role of the UN. Our activities are run for youth and by youth, and everything we do is aimed at empowering young people to be leaders on the world stage.

UN Youth Australia is run entirely by a team of over 1,000 extremely dedicated volunteers, all aged 17-25. We are one of the only organisations brave enough to empower young people with skills in education, in design, in leadership, in organisation, in diplomacy and in negotiation to execute their vision – and we could not be happier with the result!

We carried out a survey of our volunteers’ contributions to the organisation last year. It found that: we have over 1,000 volunteers who, if paid at minimum wage, donate over $2.7 million a year to educating young Australians through the work they do with our organisation.

If all of this excites you; if you are passionate about providing pathways for young people to achieve great things, and have a passion and commitment to lead positive change within the community, then we want you on our team.
