  • Experience in professional video editing, animation and post-production including editing, colour grading, encoding and compression.
  • Passion, creativity and a desire to make a positive impact

In return, we offer:

  • A supportive and nurturing leadership team in which you will have opportunities to further develop as a professional in the sector, and beyond.
  • A great team environment and culture, working with people who are passionate about tackling the greatest global health challenges.
