The Royal Society is the national Academy of science in the UK and our aim is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science, and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.
The Society has played a part in some of the most fundamental, significant, and life-changing discoveries in scientific history and Royal Society scientists continue to make outstanding contributions to science in many research areas. This is a fantastic opportunity to join the Royal Society in a high profile, creative position. You will manage and support digital content production, especially video, for the Royal Society to bring important scientific news, topics and campaigns to life for defined audiences.
The Digital Marketing Content Officer will help manage and support digital content production, especially video, for the Royal Society to bring important scientific information and campaigns to life for defined audiences. The successful candidate will be responsible for working collaboratively across the Society and with partner institutions to provide guidance and support for managing a production pipeline of new digital content to support key project initiatives with relevant teams or external agencies, as well as using video production software (such as Adobe Premiere and online video platform Wochit) to identify opportunities and produce their own timely content for distribution on the Society’s social media channels (in collaboration with the Social Media Officer). The range of content will be digital/online-focused and could cover a range of output types as deemed appropriate for the message, objectives and audience: e.g. video / infographics / interactives. The successful candidate will be familiar with end-to-end creative production and working with external partners to deliver work on time and budget. Performance benchmarks and objectives should be set to determine impact and future project work. The Digital Marketing Content Officer will also be responsible for looking at and implementing ways to expand the organisation’s profile on YouTube through channel best practice, rolling out a content strategy for our videos and filmed events (with the Public Engagement team) and using analytics to spot areas for development.
