Monocle Radio is growing. We have an exciting opportunity for Tokyo-based producers.

About Monocle

Monocle is an independent media brand that has built a global reputation for its coverage of international affairs, design, travel, fashion and much more besides. Launched in London in 2007, the business has grown to include our magazine, daily newsletters, a round-the-clock radio station and international events, as well as thriving retail stores, e-commerce and cafés. With HQs, bureaux and shops in cities including Zürich, Tokyo, Merano and Hong Kong, we are an international team that is proud to be a vital source of inspiration, analysis and ideas for our discerning global audience.

About the role

Monocle Radio brings our listeners current affairs, insightful interviews and a Monocle take on global affairs. As we continue to grow, we are seeking a razor-sharp producer based in Tokyo to work across the station’s award-winning news and global affairs output.

The role involves planning, booking and outputting daily weekday news and weekly magazine shows covering everything from business, culture and design to hospitality, media and urbanism. You will be expected to help the senior editorial team set the tone and direction of the full roster of Monocle Radio programmes.

The position is based in Tokyo but there will be opportunities for travel to report and produce segments and programmes in the field.

The successful applicant will ideally have extensive broadcast experience in a busy, globally-minded newsroom. However, we will consider exceptional candidates from a non-audio background if they can prove their aptitude for the role.

The position requires a cool head under pressure, an abundance of great ideas, a list of contacts across global markets and the ability to handle breaking news and tight deadlines. You must be capable of demonstrating that you can rapidly identify the right angles and bring fresh perspectives to Monocle Radio’s coverage.

While additional languages are an advantage, you must be able to write and edit scripts, sells and promos in flawless English, particularly when working against the clock. Hours are varied and might require early starts, late evenings and weekend work. This is a great opportunity to join a dynamic news operation and make your mark across the station’s award-winning programming.

Please send a CV to with a covering letter explaining why you are the best candidate for this role. We encourage you to include examples of your previous work and relevant experience that clearly support your application.

Please note that all applicants must have the right to work in Japan.
