Do you have the creativity and passion to help develop really engaging student videos?
The University of Lincoln puts students at the heart of everything we do and the Student Life initiative is no different. We use a blog (http://studentlife.lincoln.ac.uk), a YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/uolstudentlife) and a range of social media accounts to publish and share student-created content aimed at current Lincoln students.
We are looking for a graduate who can bring fresh ideas to this initiative, helping to create a range of video content that really engages students and enhances the student experience at Lincoln.
You will need to be creative, digitally savvy and confident in video editing and production. You will be working collaboratively, coordinating a team of video support assistants and student content creators and so you will need skills in leadership, communication and also an understanding of editorial approaches, content strategy and the basics of how to tell a good story using video.
Your role will be to support the students, helping them to produce engaging video content for our YouTube channel, blog and social media, as well as for use on Blackboard as teaching and learning resources. Some hands-on video editing and production will also be required. You will also be involved in organising and running events such as Study Happy Week, liaising with staff from different University teams, helping you to develop your communication, collaboration and organisation skills.
The role is a fixed term 12-month position, providing a recent Lincoln graduate with significant experience in the latest digital communications techniques.
You will be required to work flexible hours to meet the needs of the initiative, including some weekends and public holidays. It is expected that you will work across the University campus in different academic areas as necessary.
In addition to the remit of the role, you will also join the University's intern development programme, ‘The Lincoln Award (Graduate Interns)’. This is an integrated six month programme and will include a range of workshops and a group organisational project. The aim of the programme is to help you build up key transferable skills as well as developing you both personally and professionally. The programme enables you to build a personal portfolio, allowing you to reflect on your learning and development throughout your employment with us.
It is expected that the successful candidate will fully engage in the development programme as part of this graduate intern role.
Please note you do not need to have completed the Lincoln Award at undergraduate level to apply for this position.
This position does not fulfil the UK Visas & Immigration sponsorship criteria for Tier 2.
