The successful candidate will formally report to the Executive Director of Programming – DAZN while also working closely with the General Manager Canada.
On a day to day basis the candidate will oversee all output within for the Canadian market both programming. The output will be primarily be produced in Leeds (UK) therefore the candidate will need to be based here. The output will be produced in English language and French Canadian. This will be focused on approximately 5000 Live events per calendar year. The live events will require varying levels of production, ranging from local commentary only to bespoke match production. Furthermore, the candidate will oversee additional content for the product that includes match highlights, sports documentary and weekly magazine style programming.

They must be a proven team leader, strong manager of people, and should consider their communication skills as one of their most valuable assets. Their ability to establish and maintain relationships across a spectrum of collaborators, from other rights partners to suppliers is of key importance. The team will be lead by the Head of Production’s example of how to create world-class production output consistently in a well-organised professional team environment.
Due to the nature of the global sports calendar the production output will often run across a 24-hour period. It is imperative that a core production team is combined with a strong freelance roster in order to maintain the quality of output.
As we continue to rollout the product in other key international markets the collaboration between each market and the central production unit is key.
