This role sit within the External Relations Department at Pearson College London. Behind the scenes of the College, the Marketing, Recruitment and Communications Teams work hard to build our brand and engage with customers and stakeholders. We’re a driven, creative, supportive and fun group of people. We work across the marketing mix to produce materials, events, content and campaigns to engage with our target audiences.

Overview

We are looking for an experienced and creative Videographer to join the Pearson College London External Relations (ER) team.

You will work alongside the wider ER team and other internal stakeholders across the College, producing a wide range of video content pieces. Content pieces include webinars and tutorial edits, short-form video for internal and external events, showreels and conference filming. The Video content is shared across multiple online channels and social media.

The role demands flexibility. At times you'll be responsible for delivering design projects from start to finish, while at other times you’ll be jumping in to finish an edit, or will be repurposing existing content for use on social media channels.

You should have a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of the role of video within the context of platform, marketing, advertising, and social channels and a willingness to take initiative and to drive innovation.

As part of your application please include a link to your showreel or some examples of past work.
