Job Description

Spend a year living in Beijing working for media startup CGTN.com. China Global Television Network (CGTN) is seeking native English Digital Editors in our Beijing headquarters. As a successful candidate, you will edit stories and headlines in real-time format and are expected to handle varied and complex story assignments.
Editors will be required to quickly read through stories to immediately transform material information into clear, concise and accurate headlines and short stories. The editor is comfortable working within a high-pressure team environment.


About CGTN
China Global Television Network, or CGTN, is China’s new international media organization. It was launched by the national broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) on December 31, 2016. 

By launching CGTN, we want to re-brand our product to the world, to cope with the global trend in media convergence. 

CGTN English is the flagship channel. The strategy, “Mobile first", aims to fulfill the demands of global viewers and users for easier access to content on different platforms. 
With an international team of professionals from more than 70 countries and regions, CGTN is an investment in the future of news media. 

CGTN is a multi-language, multi-platform media grouping. It consists of six TV channels – including a 24-hour English-language news channel – a video content provider and a digital media division. Our brand new official website is CGTN.com.

Headquartered at the landmark CCTV building in Beijing, CGTN brings together an international professional team, with production centers in Washington and Nairobi, and a European production center on the way. 

CGTN Television - The main English-language news channel CGTN has taken over from CCTVNEWS, while our other language channels are now CGTN Spanish, French, Arabic and Russian. CGTN Documentary replaced CCTV Documentary English and is China’s first state-level English-language documentary channel to broadcast globally.

Under our former name of CCTVNEWS, we had a long history of award-winning journalism. In 2016 we won an Emmy award – with “Jen Bricker: When ‘Can’t’ is a Four-Letter Word", an 18-minute segment for our weekly US-based magazine/talk show “Full Frame". The documentary “Heroin's hold on Myanmar", was the winner of a Silver World Medal at the 2016 New York Festival’s International TV & Film Awards. And CCTVNEWS has also been recognized by Europe’s Eutelsat TV Awards for outstanding news broadcasting.

CGTN Digital - We also deliver our content across a range of digital platforms. Not only are all television programs broadcast simultaneously online and on mobile, but the website and news app provide original stories from China and around the world, with the support of CGTN’s global team. You can also find us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Weibo and WeChat. With content on our social media platforms ranging from online live video streaming to breaking news and original features, join CGTN Digital in testing the latest technologies. 

CCTV Plus – Our video content provider offers news footage to thousands of TV stations and media organizations across the world. Let us help you find what you need.
