Do You Have A Passion To Create Amazing Videos?

 
 
 

Love making videos?

We are looking for someone who would like the opportunity to work in a fast-paced, constantly innovating technology company. We work with some of the largest companies in the world, and you’ll have direct experience contributing to video production for us as The Marsden Group and the clients we serve.

This role is for someone who can think on their feet and get creative. You’ll be dealing with clients directly and working on a wide and diverse range of projects. You’ll be editing content from offshore oil rigs to Formula 1 pit lanes and everything in between.

You’ll need to have the ability to edit and produce a piece of video content (ideally with minimal guidance).

If you are also able to film (and would be willing and able to travel within the UK and overseas to capture content) that would be even better but that’s not essential to the role.

Have skills but no experience?  No problem, you just need to show us examples of your work.

At TMG we are renowned for our speed, so you'll need to be fast, even if it's not always perfect the first time.

 

Key attributes

  • Self-starter - you need to be self-motivated and be able to take the initiative. If you are someone who requires step by step instructions then this role isn’t for you.

  • Trustworthy - as our teams work across the world, in different locations, and in different time zones, we have no interest in micromanaging you. We need to be able to trust you 100% that you will do the work you say you will.

  • Aspiring - we never want to settle, we want to find new and better ways to do things. You should be someone who wants to develop, wants to aspire to greater things and inspire others to do the same.

 

Essential skills

  • Proficiency in a video editing software program e.g. Final Cut or Adobe Premier. Basic understanding of Adobe Creative Suite in general (Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign) or equivalent software.

  • Ability to execute and deliver final video – including animations, sound design, colour, and graphic effects.

Experience in the following areas would also be useful (but is by no means a requirement of the role):

  • Knowledge of all stages of production (including storyboards and concepts) and post-delivery methods.

  • Animation, motion graphics or visual effect skill sets

  • Experience operating professional video equipment, sound equipment, and lighting.

  • Willingness to accompany existing TMG employees on UK and Overseas trips to capture video content (Often with minimal notice). This would be mostly within the UK but could also involve international travel, for example, offshore oil rigs and industrial factories)

  • Knowledge of graphic design software (Adobe Illustrator or equivalent)

  • Ability to adapt to the design language/colour theme of a client and be creative within their desired direction.

What type of video content will you be producing?

Video content is all B2B and includes (but is not limited too) content creation for the following channels:

  • Account-based marketing (Fortune 500 companies):

    • Internal communication content on behalf of clients. This includes producing media to convey the application of cutting edge technology to internal client audiences and creating content media for onboarding and educating our clients’ users.

    • External communication media on behalf of clients. This includes producing promotional videos conveying success stories around the application of cutting edge technology for use on social media, for presentations and at conferences and events.

  • Company marketing:

    • Media content for marketing of The Marsden Group, ranging from corporate video content to case studies.

Level of role

We are flexible about the level of this position. It’s not about having years of experience. If you do, that’s a bonus but it’s more important that you have a solid base skill set and the right attributes. There is the potential to really grow in this role and for the right person, we can help with training to build up your skill set in the areas that you want to develop. 

You could be a young filmmaker or you could already be working in a similar type of role and be looking for a new challenge.

What to expect

We want to enable you to do your best work ever. We can offer:

  • Remote working, flexible working hours and work environments suitable for your lifestyle.

  • Opportunity to work directly with Fortune 50 companies, from day 1.

  • Experience and exposure you will not get in any other company.

  • Very competitive package relevant to experience, with the opportunity to grow quickly.

Resources

You will be provided with a laptop, editing software, filming equipment, and any other key tools that you need. All travel costs will be reimbursed in line with our expenses policy.

Location

Must operate in UK Time Zone.

Start Date

We are looking to recruit someone to start ASAP but we are happy to look at a part-time position initially - to work around any current commitments that you may have.
