We're looking to add to our video and design capabilities, bringing on a creative who's also interested in learning more about insight work...

With Crowd DNA growing fast in APAC – winning amazing projects for fantastic brands – we are looking to add to our team. Specifically, we have identified the need to bring more videographer capabilities in-house, with film work often playing a pivotal role in how we help our clients to relate to trends and empathise with people and culture – in all of its glorious messiness. Ideally, candidates will also be able to bring design skills with them.

So while this role does require those all-important filming, editing, and, ideally, design skills, it’s also at the intersection of insight and strategy work. We therefore are searching for someone who’s passionate about learning more about solving brand challenges through research as well; and collaborating with others in our team.

Here’s what we’re looking for in more detail:

– 1-3 years of work experience

– Good film and photography skills, including shooting video using Canon film kit and filming interview/documentary-style content

– Equally hot editing skills, with a mastery of the Adobe Creative Suite (especially Premiere Pro; bonus points for After Effects knowledge)

– Some experience in design – specifically editorial/report formats, and using InDesign

– An aptitude for project management, and an ability to manage the delivery of work in an efficient and effective manner

– Keen to bring ideas to the table – including testing and developing new formats for socialising trends and insights across businesses, and for Crowd DNA’s own thought leadership material in APAC

– Enthusiasm for working alongside a team of researchers, strategists, semioticians and data experts

–  Editorial and copywriting skills a bonus!

– Similarly, to be able to demonstrate an enthusiasm for cultural insight and strategy work will be a plus

We’re open to candidates searching for a permanent role or interested in a shorter term contract (six months or a year). Ideally Sydney-based but open to other locations (within a similar timezone!). 

The role comes with a competitive salary. Benefits include: 10am-6pm hours (also flexi time); flexible WFH/WFO policy; paid sabbatical after five years; 30 days ‘work from anywhere’; company awards, days out, betterment scheme; training sessions and guest speakers; health scheme and generous gender neutral parental leave policy.

If you fancy working in a place where setting the agenda for the future of cultural insights and strategy is coded into the way of working, please get in touch with Elyse Pigram, providing a covering letter and CV/portfolio in the first instance.
