Are you someone who loves editing multiple projects at once and working on films that really make a difference? Then this could definitely be for you!
Inspired is looking for a passionate and enthusiastic Editor to assist our multi award-winning in-house creative team, producing branded content, impact films, human interest stories, short form social films and animations for some of the UK’s leading brands and agencies.
You must be super-organized and reliable and happy editing in the office and at home, as well as being out on location.
Candidates must have previous experience in cutting short form doc, branded content and corporate film. The candidate will need strong storytelling abilities, being able to tell emotive stories about sensitive topics in a compassionate way, but also creative flair for slick corporate and branded content films.
Additionally, we’d be looking for people with a solid understanding of the industry; knowing the ins and outs of the production process and enjoying mucking in wherever needed. There are also opportunities to originate and pitch content and project ideas.
There is an opportunity to evolve the position into a Head of Post Production role, as we build the post time and bring in junior editors to work alongside you.
