  • Contributing to and/or leading video production efforts, including storyboarding, shoot organisation, filming and editing.
  • Interpreting client feedback and making updates.
  • Reviewing analytics to form insights about video performance.
  • Staying up-to-date with best practices for video content in marketing and sharing knowledge with the wider team..
