About The Role:

Our Storytelling Editor will play a key role in crafting the output of this team. We’re looking for someone who’s used to working as part of team and at pace.
You’ll need the skills to creatively craft edits that tell an engaging story, as well being able to produce creative motion design and graphics.
Whilst you’ll normally work closely with the producer, writer and content creator (videographer) you’ll also be the teams representative when they are out and about on shoots. So you’ll need to have the confidence to make creative decisions and be happy interacting with stakeholders from the rest of the business, which would include creative, marketing, PR & board level executives.
You’ll need lots of energy, loads of creative ideas and the technical skills to edit insightful, informative and entertaining content on the fly.
You’ll need to be able to execute a brief, but we’re also looking for someone with a curious nature who loves asking why and has an opinion on how to shape a narrative.
You’ll be supported by a strong team with each role playing an equally important part in the creative process. So, if all the above is ticking the right boxes so far, take a look at the details below.
