Content Developer: GB Rowing Team Pathway

📣A bit about the role

You’ll be helping us find the GB Rowing Team stars of the future by designing and producing campaigns to attract potentially talented athletes to our talent identification programmes. We’re looking for someone who’s excited about telling the story of the diverse group of athletes on our talent identification pathways.

There’s a huge variety to rowing and so your days will be varied too – this could include:

  • Filming at one of our World Class Start camps
  • Designing a campaign and video to reach out to new audiences
  • Telling the story of one of our Paralympians

👋 A bit about you

You’ll be excellent with a camera and a whizz at Premiere Pro and confident creating contemporary graphic overlays on After Effects. You’ll be comfortable producing, filming and editing. We need someone who understands social media, what people want to see and how video can help drive our messages and objectives.

You need to have a can-do attitude and be someone who will make things happen. You need to be creative, highly motivated and forward-thinking – someone who gets excited and inspired when they see a good piece of content. You’ll need to be comfortable developing strong relationships with the athletes in our pathways to draw out their stories.

If you’re good at graphic design that would be a bonus and whilst it will help if you’re passionate about sport, it’s not essential.

🚣‍ A bit about us
