You’ll get the chance to interview users and tell their stories. You’ll produce video and audio content that ties in with charities’ organisational goals. You’ll help charities show their impact through simple animation. 

Democratising access to content for all levels of charities regardless of their budget is key to our work. Content that creates real impact - increasing volunteer recruitment, helping people understand complex information, encouraging people to self-refer and increasing donations.

This role is about creating simple, quick, effective content that is accessible to a wide range of third sector organisations, their members and the people they support.

You should be passionate about video and audio storytelling. You’ll work with people with lived experience and subject matter experts in charities to generate engaging content that brings about real social change.
