Job Description

Do you want to make compelling films that have meaningful impact? Do you want to shape an exciting new role and our new brand identity? And do you want to help ensure that all children grow up in loving families, never orphanages?

Then we want to hear from you!

This is a new opportunity for an experienced video editor to join our Brand and Communications team. Your mission will be to consistently create powerful, hard-to-ignore, multi-channel video content while working to significantly increase the efficiency, quality and creativity of our visual storytelling. You’ll also lead on effectively managing and organising all video assets and supporting our Content Strategist to commission freelancers and production companies, manage our story and content-gathering processes and upkeep our new Digital Asset Management system.

This is a really exciting time to join our team. In March we launched our new organisational strategy, brand and new website. Our new brand visual identity is vibrant and bold to help us stand out and you’ll be instrumental in sharing our new brand story with our audiences through powerful video content.

You’ll be joining a brave, can-do organisation, and an ambitious, collaborative and multi-skilled team. You’ll be encouraged to think and act big, and you’ll be mandated and supported to do what’s needed to achieve our mission.

Video Editor Requirements:

We’re looking for a talented creative and highly-motivated video editor with strong experience of planning, scripting, editing and delivering emotionally compelling video content. With a love of efficiency as well as story, you’ll be equally excited about establishing efficient processes and editing workflows and the opportunity to significantly improve the quality of our video content and visual storytelling to enhance our new brand. Ability to self-shoot is a bonus, but is not required. The most important thing we are looking for is your video editing experience and the quality of your work.

This post requires the post holder to have the right to work in the UK and is subject to a DBS check.

HHC actively encourages equality and diversity, and we look to recruit across age, gender, ethnicity and background as we believe diversity brings us closer to our mission of eliminating orphanages.

About Us:

Orphanages harm children.

The majority of those who experience life inside an institution suffer violence, abuse and neglect. Denied the chance to grow up in a family, they’re more likely to become homeless later in life, to have run-ins with the law, and to experience mental and physical health issues.

The shocking truth is that these are almost always children who have, or could have, a family to look after them. To love them. But every day, a broken system puts pressure on parents to give up their children. They'll be safe from war, can escape poverty, will get an education. False promises. No child should have to trade their family for their future.

Today, over 5.4 million children are trapped within institutions. It’s not right and it must stop. Children deserve so much better. Always.

Since 1994, Hope and Homes for Children has been working to stop the institutionalisation of children. We’re 250 people, in ten countries, inspiring organisations, including the UN, EU and governments around the world, to close the doors of orphanages forever. Instead, we fight for every child to feel the love and belonging of a safe family home.

We want to make families, never orphanages, the new narrative. The global Covid pandemic is an emergency for the children and families we work with. So far, the virus has robbed nearly two million children of the mothers, fathers or grandparents who cared for them. With families stretched to breaking point, millions more children now risk losing their loving homes to the neglect and abuse of an orphanage.
