Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) is the UK’s leading organisation fighting antisemitism. Every year, we reach millions of people through our work in the media and social media. We have become a go-to source of information and comment for journalists. Tens of thousands follow us on social media, hundreds of thousands read our website, and our research is widely relied upon.
In a world where people increasingly rely on video content via social media for information, CAA has emerged as a leading voice fighting disinformation, conspiracy theories and sophisticated new forms of incitement and extremist ideology.
We are now seeking a talented and passionate Video and Content Creator to join our team. This individual will play a critical role in shaping visual narratives that educate, inform, and inspire action against antisemitism.
As Video and Content Creator, you will help us to maintain a clear and approachable tone of voice and design language across multiple social and traditional channels, whilst pursuing and executing creative projects that help us to put across complex concepts in a manner that is accessible and attractive.
The Video and Content Creator’s role is to support the Chief Communications Officer and colleagues within the communications team by:
- Conceiving, shooting and editing short, punchy videos for social media, especially Instagram and TikTok, and also longer videos for YouTube and X;
- Collaborating with our team to conceptualise and create impactful video content that aligns with our mission;
- Editing and assembling raw material into a suitable, finished product ready for broadcasting. The material may include camera footage, dialogue, sound effects, graphics, and special effects; and
- Continuously discovering and implementing new editing technologies and industry best practices to maximise efficiency and relevance.
You will work within our team to devise new means of creatively disseminating CAA’s message via social media, collaborating to create concepts for content and campaigns that cut through to our audiences, and innovating quickly to virally engage our supporters.
Conceiving, shooting and editing videos: CAA must produce high-quality audio-visual resources for dissemination on social media and elsewhere to raise awareness of antisemitism among those who rely on videos for information. These videos vary in length, design and purpose. You will be able to help conceive exciting ideas for videos and film and edit the videos to the highest standard, in line with our brand. You must know how to create punchy, informative and entertaining videos, and an ideal candidate will have experience doing so.
Collaborating with our communications team: You will work within our communications team to conceptualise and create impactful video content that aligns with our mission. You will have an awareness of what sort of videos work on different social media platforms and engage audiences of different ages and interests. You will also work with other teams within CAA to provide video content for their projects as necessary.
Editing and assembling raw material: You will know or learn every stage of video creation, from conception and storyboarding through filming, editing and the creation of a finished product ready for broadcasting. Perfect fluency in written English is required, as is familiarity with the Adobe suite of software, including Adobe Premiere Pro, as well as Canva and Audacity. Some understanding of antisemitism is desirable, but not essential.
Discovering and implementing industry best practices: CAA has always prided itself on pioneering campaigns to raise awareness of, and combat, antisemitism. As Video Editor, you will be expected to measure performance of campaigns, looking for ways to learn and enhance our profile, and maintain an awareness of developments in technology and industry best practice, to ensure that CAA is always at the forefront of video creation.
The successful candidate will be creative and precise, even under pressure. You will have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work as part of a large and growing team.
