Your chance to make the club’s video content even better!

Do you have interest in online video and an interest in football? (If not, why are you here and reading this?) Do you have minimum two (2) years of relevant experience, including content management and video production, as well as strong skills in Adobe Premiere and the like?

If so, here’s your chance to make Chelsea TV even better! The club’s in-house video production team is looking for a new “Channel Manager”, a full-time (35 hours) position at Stamford Bridge responsible for “publication and management of daily video content”, including most crucially on matchdays.

Chelsea’s video production and content has evolved greatly in the last few years, and generally all for the better, except for that interminable emphasis on the 5th Stand App. But that’s probably just my age talking. (Fortunately, the job posting also mentions YouTube a few times, in addition to the app and website-based videos.)

Given Chelsea’s global fanbase, in-house video has been and will increasingly continue to be the primary means of the club engaging with those fans. That’s especially true in a pandemic, when literally no one can actually go to the games.

In any case, if this is something you’re interested in, qualified for, and suits your needs logistically as well (I’m assuming you’d have to be able to get to the Bridge), I’d urge you to apply. It can only help if the channel manager is also a fan!
