Live Content and Programming Director

Why are we here?

We’re building a different type of newsroom, for a slower, wiser news. Now more than ever it’s important to have calm, clear journalism you can trust. We’re not chasing breaking news, but revealing what’s driving it. Built to cover stories not as they happen, but when they’re ready. Where everyone has a seat at the table. Tortoise sets out to bring people together to try and make sense of the world. We’re here to build journalism that lasts. 

At Tortoise, we work with partners to build bespoke products and communications solutions built on Tortoise’s code of journalistic values of organised listening, independence and openness.

We are building membership-driven content, events and market intelligence business for C-suite executives and industry professionals. Our Responsible Business Forums attract some of the highest profile CEOs who run the world’s most influential organisations. Supported by world-class industry research, our members pay to access peer-to-peer discussion forums, networking dinners, roundtables and newsletters. We are quickly building a reputation for providing distinctive and influential events and content that attract extremely high calibre members. In addition, our B2C offering drives a scale through our audio content and a smaller but highly desirable audience through our newsletter content.

What’s my personal contribution?

The Live Content and Programming Director will have editorial and operational responsibility for all Tortoise Live events output, across both B2B and B2C. You will lead a newly centralised team of talented event professionals, including programming / talent booking, editing and tech direction, operations and customer experience. You will work closely with the editorial and commercial teams to develop and deliver differentiated, intelligent, purposeful and entertaining live events that deliver Tortoise editorial strategy and meet commercial targets for attendance and sponsorship revenue.

They will represent the team editorially to internal and external stakeholders and support business development efforts where required. 

What are my responsibilities & accountabilities?

What do I know? Useful knowledge, skills and experience.

What do I show? Essential behaviours.
