DaDa is a pioneering disability and Deaf arts organisation based in Liverpool with a national and international reach. We programme a multi-art form year-round artistic programme that includes high quality festivals, interventions and events as well as support for young and emerging disabled artists.

We are looking for a Video Editor to be an integral part of the DaDa team. 

You will be responsible for creating an online series of short films, looking at the artists we support and the work that they make, for online audiences and social media. We have an initial series of 12 short films planned for Autumn 2021, each around 10 minutes in length, with plans to repeat the process throughout 2022 if successful.

8 of the films will spotlight our DaDa Fellows, and will consist of interviews with them conducted by our joint Artistic Director and CEO. The remaining 4 films will consist of Behind The Scenes mini-documentaries about the work that DaDa does, spotlighting various projects, including the run up to DaDaFest Scratch 2021.

This is a new role for someone looking for an exciting and flexible opportunity in a creative and welcoming company. We are looking for someone with a passion for innovation, art, and culture, especially within the world of disability arts. The successful candidate will bring expertise in editing, colour grading and an aptitude for strong narrative. There are also opportunities for training within this role to develop a range of video production skills.

Though we are based in Liverpool, we can offer this role as remote work, so candidates should feel free to apply from all over the UK. We will be offering a fee of £2,500 for the work, expecting a five week turnaround to be sufficient for this project. However, we are happy to be flexible and receive alternative offers from candidates if you require a different fee or timeframe for you to be able to complete this work.

We recognise that the following people are underrepresented in our work force and in the wider performing arts sector, those people who experience racism and marginalisation, who are discriminated against, and facing intersecting barriers including those who are Deaf, disabled and neuro-divergent or have long-term health conditions; those from African, Caribbean, LatinX, Middle East, North African, South Asian, East and South East Asian heritages and their diasporas.

To encourage applications from both communities, any candidate who identifies as the above people and who demonstrates in the CV that they meet all of the essential skills and requirements is guaranteed an interview irrespective of score at shortlisting.
