Video Editor


Video Editor

Apply for this role

We’re looking for a talented video editor with an eye for great design and an uncompromising desire to create and deliver outstanding videos. 

This is an exciting role working closely with our Motion Director at an established and talented agency motion team. A positive ‘can-do attitude’ is essential, plus the ability to work quickly and confidently under pressure, with constant attention to detail, whilst always striving to deliver the highest standard of creative output for our amazing clients.

Responsibilities & Duties 

  • Above all else we’re looking for somebody with the ability to tease out and tell a compelling story. Turning an hour interview into a 3 minute video won’t faze you – you’ll have a clear idea of the story that you want to tell, and be able to call on your skills, experience and attitude to create something that exceeds client expectations.
  • Work closely with our talented creative, digital and client services teams - and occasionally external specialists – to create high-end motion content to production ready standards for publication across multiple platforms i.e., web, social, display and broadcast.  
  • Be involved at all stages of the creative process - from interpreting the brief and contributing to script development, through to creating mood and storyboards and representing the motion team at project planning meetings and occasionally shoots.
  • Use your experience, specialist knowledge and passion to actively contribute to team creative ideation sessions and, when appropriate, share your ideas and creative knowledge to inspire our clients. 
  • Take ownership of multiple tasks, projects and priorities to ensure they are all delivered on time and to the highest possible standard. 

Skills & Experience

  • A genuine passion for all things video related, with a relentless desire to push the boundaries of video production.
  • Outstanding editing skills, including an appreciation of narrative, timing, pace, colour and composition, combined with an ability to meet fast turnaround deadlines. 
  • Excellent communication and time management skills, and the ability and people skills to plan, manage and produce multiple project edits with minimal direction.
  • Advanced Mac skills and technical knowledge in Premiere, Photoshop and Illustrator are essential. Working knowledge of other Adobe Creative Cloud applications like After Effects - and 3D applications like Cinema 4D, and Autodesk 3ds Max and Maya – would be a big advantage. 
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office applications – Teams, Word, Excel and Powerpoint. 
  • Previous agency experience, within a creative or digital environment, and proven experience of delivering multiple creative projects to tight timescales. 
  • Experience of working within the parameters of large corporate branding guidelines.  

Company Benefits

We like to look after our team and provide a lot of benefits. This is all the normal stuff we offer but, with the pandemic going on, some of these have been put on the back-burner for a while for safety reasons. We hope to bring it all back soon though – we’re missing our parties and the pick ‘n’ mix!
