Vacancies Digital Content Creator

Permanent
Part time or full time during term time

To start as soon as possible

The Godolphin and Latymer School is one of the country’s leading independent day schools for girls, located on a six acre site in Hammersmith, London.  The School’s facilities are excellent, making it an exciting place to learn and work.  The students at Godolphin and Latymer receive unrivalled academic and pastoral support and outstanding examination results are achieved.

We are looking for a Digital Content Creator with a passion and talent for photography and video.  Our schools’ digital platforms include the school websites, mailchimp newsletters, social media, digital marketing materials, school magazine and third party websites.  The role will focus on the creation of high-quality digital assets, video and images covering all aspects of school life, at both Godolphin and Latymer School, Hammersmith, and Godolphin and Latymer Redcliffe Gardens School, Chelsea, to be shared on a range of communication platforms with our parents, students, staff and prospective parents.

The ideal candidate will be experienced in creating digital assets and have a real interest in videography and photography and be able to create short form video content.  They may well have a background in digital design, and will know their way around DSLR cameras.  They will also be active across all of the key Social Media channels.  Working as part of a small team, this role requires excellent communication skills and the ability to art direct shoots with pupils, staff and our Senior Leadership Team; the role has a lot of autonomy.

Although experience in all areas is preferred, training may be offered to suitably qualified candidates who are dynamic and quick on the uptake and who have the passion, drive, commitment and potential to thrive in the role.

The role involves working on a range of projects, ensuring that all content is engaging, relevant and on-brand, delivering our key marketing and communications messages to our stakeholders.

Due to the nature of the role, a flexible approach in regard to working hours will be required.  The contractual hours will be agreed on appointment and are anticipated to be a minimum of 24 hours per week during the term time, which includes the weeks in which each term begins and ends.  These core hours should be worked over four or five days per week and will ideally allow the post-holder to be in school for break time, lunch time and after-school to cover activities that take place at these times.  Work outside of normal school hours will be required on occasion to suit the needs of the department and the school’s busy calendar of events.  Depending on the skills and experience of the post holder, this could be a full-time during term-time role.

The salary will be commensurate with the post and will depend upon qualifications and experience.

The appointed person will commence in post as soon as possible on the completion of all required pre-appointment checks.

Please refer to the recruitment information booklet for further details about the role.

Fully completed application forms should be returned to recruitment@godolphinandlatymer.com as soon as possible and by noon on the closing date at the latest.  Please note that applications must be made on the school’s application form.  Neither CVs nor late applications will be accepted.

The final closing date for applications is noon on 2 December 2022 however applications will be considered as they are received and interviews may therefore occur at any stage.

The recruitment process may therefore be concluded prior to the closing date.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and responsibility.  Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

All staff working in the School during the school day will have some contact with children and will therefore be in regulated activity.  In this role you will regularly work and interact with pupils including on school trips.

The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are “spent” unless they are “protected” under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
