Videography Intern Vacancy

About the Role

Gordonstoun is one of the most famous schools in the world, being the first independent school to educate an heir to the British throne and three generations of the Royal Family. We are at a pivotal moment in our history with a vision to transform our campus, open our first overseas schools and continue making our mark as a leader in character education.

This is an opportunity for an individual who wants to develop videography skills for use in PR, Marketing and Communications to join our friendly and dynamic team in our beautiful 200 acre campus situated in the stunning North East of Scotland.

Our Marketing and Communications Department comprises an experienced and multi-skilled team who understand the history of the school and the importance of its reputation whilst also being willing to try out the latest ideas and take a risk on something new. The department plays a crucial role in designing high quality videos, digital marketing campaigns and raising the profile of the school. Our marketing materials need to encourage a wide range of prospective parents to consider Gordonstoun, from extremely high-net worth individuals to talented individuals who qualify for financial help in order to allow them to benefit from a life-changing education.

Gordonstoun has always been a pioneer and is now looking for a creative and ambitious videographer who can support a variety of projects. There are plenty of opportunities for you to shoot your own short videos for our social media channels and valued stakeholders, whilst also supporting staff to produce their own videos and to work with professional freelance videographers. We are looking for someone who is full of ideas but who is also well organised and can pull a complicated plan together to create a polished result.

This is an opportunity to work with one of the most recognised education brands in the world, in one of the most stunning landscapes in the UK.

We are looking for someone who has an understanding of what makes a compelling video, and who also has innovative ideas to help us to stand out in a competitive market. The successful candidate will help us to develop, design and manage videos across all departments in the school. Your own videography and editing equipment is an advantage. We welcome applications from individuals from all backgrounds.

Working as part of a small and agile team, the candidate will need to contribute to the wider objectives of the department as a whole. You will need to be as comfortable talking to a shy, six year old child as a sixty year old former pupil who is now the Chief Executive of global company.
