video editor

Job description

1. Edit x4 Longform videos per month for x1 client’s YouTube channel. We intend to increase the amount of longform videos in two stages. Stage one to 8 videos per month and stage two to 12 videos per month. Ideally, you would have the capacity to increase your workload and hours with us over time to accommodate this. We don’t require you to be on-site filming the videos with the client. A member of our team does this and then the videos are uploaded, ready to be edited. If you require being on location for some reason, please let us know at the end of the application form or email us at Longform videos are around the 15-minute mark. This may vary from time to time.

2. Edit x30 YouTube Shorts per month for x1 client’s YouTube Channel.

This content will be taken from the longform videos and made into ‘short moments’

Shorts are normally around the 15-second mark or less.

If you are unable to get 30 Shorts per month from the longform videos, some Shorts may be created as standalone videos, which we would require you to edit (as part of the monthly quota)

All videos will be uploaded, scheduled, optimised, published, analysed, etc. by our team. 

Examples of the client’s content and brand below (please familiarise yourself)

***Please note, this client’s end product is adult content on the OnlyFans platform which is NSFW. Although you won’t be required to edit any explicit adult content, you MUST be comfortable with this niche, as her social media content will regularly reference her work, be heavily built into her content strategy and you will be editing raw files that may include nudity.***
