A senior role, the successful applicant will manage the entire production workflow of the company, acting as a hands-on producer and video project manager. Working directly with the managing director and director of communications, you will be a proven producer who is equally at home crafting our bigger productions as you are ensuring every film we produce meets the highest possible standards. You will be leading multiple projects at any one time, so will need to thrive on working efficiently while not compromising on quality.
