Providing picture research support to international content editors and liaising internally. While I am still providing picture research and general picture desk administrative support, my level of responsibility has increased and my skills developed. I frequently fill the role of picture editor in his absence and lead the picture desk on a regular basis. This also means I am versed in aspects of media law, including libel and copyright. Other responsibilities include managing and delegating tasks to the picture desk team, commissioning freelance and agency photographers as well as negotiating pricing and exclusivity for picture sets from agencies and freelance photographers to work within the picture desk budget. I regularly use social media to source images and seek the latest trend as well as constantly monitoring other newspapers, magazines and online publications for images relating to the latest news and entertainment stories. This position involves being accountable to multiple departments at once, including the publisher, as well as home, foreign, showbiz and lifestyle news editors. As a live news website deadlines are instant and working quickly and efficiently under pressure is a daily requirement.
