Purpose of the Role

The Senior Editor’s role is to ensure outstanding quality and content of all video work moving through the company. They must have an advanced level of editing, and a passion for crafting a narrative suitable to the different platforms and formats for each project. Our work is very varied, shooting and cutting anything from interviews, social content, comedy, TVCs, reels and anything else one of our clients may need.

Whether working with Directors and Producers, or sitting with a client to go through an edit, an ability to communicate effectively is a must, as we work in a very fast paced environment and often need to negotiate competing interests. The editor will advise and contribute creatively at different stages of projects in our open and all hands on deck methodology for delivering the right work for our client’s business objectives.

You will be critical in making sure we are delivering great work and outstanding service for our clients, and will have significant impact on all of the work put out by the business.
You’ll be part of a passionate and experienced team of creators that pride themselves on service and relationships.
