With a best-selling book, and daily media commitments a mile long, the time has come for Scott Pape, the Barefoot Investor to have his own dedicated full-time content producer.
Working directly with the Barefoot Investor himself, founder Scott Pape , weâre looking for an experienced, energetic, passionate producer, preferably with radio, television and social experience, who can work shoulder-to-shoulder with Scott, preparing him for the dozens of interviews, articles, podcasts, and social interactions he has daily.
You donât need to be a finance major -- thatâs Scottâs domain. However it is a non-negotiable that you have a passion for the Barefoot message, know it intimately, and be able to produce and turn around content at break-neck speed.
This position is fast paced â Scott is fast paced â And you need to stay one step ahead, so youâll need loads of energy, and a high attention to detail.
A typical morning could consist of:
- Three radio interviews (you liaise with the producer, research the content, brief Scott).
- Writing a Q&A column (you select the questions, edit them down, provide them to Scott to answer).
- A video for our own platform (you script out the content, brief Scott, edit the video, and then post the content).
- Then, youâll review the radio interviews from the morning, edit the best one, and post it to Facebook.
In fact, thereâs no such thing as a typical morning at Barefoot, our ideal candidate needs to be nimble and flexible, ready to adapt to changes on the fly and get things done.
Youâll be in the trenches, helping Scott develop amazing content (on our own platforms and in the mass media), every single day. We have a hugely passionate fan base, this is about leveraging Scottâs time so that we can get more content out to our audience.
You will be responsible for:
Leading the end-to-end production of Barefoot Investor content - ensuring, content is planned effectively, deadlines are met, and content is delivered to the highest level.
Conducting research - to be used in the development of Barefoot content
Video, audio and graphics editing - facilitating post-production requirements to get content ready for publication
Social media management - confidently (and speedily!) posting to social to leverage the content produced, daily
Script writing for TV, radio, podcasts - creation and direction as required

Weâre looking for someone with:
Minimum 3-5 years experience in TV/radio producer role.
An interest in financial education and familiarity with the Barefoot Investor principles and content
Excellent communication skills.
Flexible, nimble, and great at working under pressure.
Ability to work autonomously and plan workload effectively - highly organised with strong attention to detail.
Demonstrate persistence and tenacity in following through to achieve desired results
A performance-driven, collaborative style; someone who works hard but loves to have fun doing so - culture is critical to us, so personality needs to accompany skills
Competent with industry standard editing programs eg Final Cut Pro, audio editing.
Tertiary qualifications in finance or business journalism or a related discipline a plus.
