As part of our busy in-house creative agency we require a strong, confident, fully rounded and fun in-house editor. Key skills are the ability to edit and manipulate motion and stills content to create simple, characterful on-brand and witty content for our social media platforms from gif’s to cinema graphs to short form films and anything in between–the ability to keep up with the social media world’s rapid changes is a must and the wherewithal to adapt.
