Job description

University of Sussex is looking for a Video Production Assistant to join its Digital and Creative Media Team.

The Video Production Assistant will support the Digital and Creative Media team in various daily tasks including project management, video production, post production, video QA/QC, and asset management.

We want someone with proven successful experience of working in a video/creative agency or as part of an internal video production team. You will be highly organised, confident and a master of effective time management.

If you have the ability to juggle multiple projects, love working in an Apple Mac environment and have a passion for all things video, we want you to join our team.

You will need excellent client and customer service skills, as you will be working alongside our 11 academic schools and our professional services divisions.

The majority of your role will be supporting the Video Manager. This is an exciting and varied role that will suit someone in the early stages of a career in video co-ordination/production management and is keen to develop their experience further.

Your ‘typical day’ could consist of attending and art directing a video shoot, attending video planning meetings, re-purposing some video with Adobe Premiere Pro, creating video briefs and updating our CMS.

This is an exciting time to join the Digital and Creative Media team within the Student Recruitment and Marketing Division at Sussex. The University has recently appointed a new Vice-Chancellor, has launched a refreshed brand identity, and is starting the journey toward an evidence-based, digital-first culture.

This is not a camera operator/editor job. However, you may occasionally be asked to use cameras or mobile phones to capture footage and there will be a demand for some basic video editing.

The Video Production Assistant role is crucial to supporting this, as the demand for engaging, successful video continues to grow. The landscape and expectations around online video are constantly changing. If this excites you, come and join us.
