EMPLOYMENT TYPE

START DATE

Full-time

March 2022

The Role

  • The role as a Digital Content Creator will see you being a part of a team of passionate digital creators. You’ll inspire and motivate the team to always be pushing the bar higher for the content and strategies we develop for our clients. You’ll also be at the coal face yourself and showcasing your own creativity and production ability, meaning that you’ll need to be brilliant under pressure with untouchable attention to detail.

  • When we cover live events you’ll kick into a higher gear where long days, high pressure, and multitasking won’t make you blink an eye. During the office days, you’ll be responsible for the daily content production to cover various client platforms, channels and projects. 

  • You will play a key role in the growth of the agency and we are wanting to see someone that really owns their projects, taking full responsibility for their work from start to finish. We want this to be the best thing you’ve ever worked on and we want someone who’s got the serious creative skills, talent, work ethic, and dedication to deliver.

About You

  • You have a strong background in digital content creation for social, but also traditional media. You're highly motivated and you can take direction, but you are also a self-starter and eager to get work done.

  • You are also social and a team player, a leader, and digitally fluent. Ideally, you’ll have a passion for motorsport (or you are willing to learn) and you have a commercial mindset that’s sharp and focused.

  • You’re obsessed with creating engaging content and you know what works. You’re up to date with all the major social platforms and you know what type of content works on them. You can work fast, really fast. This means shooting, editing, and publishing often on the fly and almost in real-time.

  • You’ve got slick video skills and your still photography is on point. You can edit things so well even Quentin Tarantino gets goosebumps. You’re proficient in Lightroom, Photoshop, Premiere, and Final Cut Pro. Your attention to detail needs to be one of your strongest points.

  • You’re creatively curious and one of your main strengths is your creative thinking.

  • You obsess over client objectives and how to exceed them. You ideally have experience of working with big brands and corporations in various industries. This will help you to know what can be achieved and how to make incredible content because you've done it before and excelled at it.

Responsibilities 

  • Create long and short-form digital content on and off F1 race weekends.

  • Plan and execute various forms of content according to a social planner built by the social media team.

  • Liaise with multiple clients and stakeholders, mainly in the world of Formula 1 but also outside as needed.

  • Creative input and control on the content that will be posted across various channels.
