The role encompasses sourcing, editing and creating video to be hosted on Metro.co.uk and on social platforms, as part of its 24-hour operation.

Ideal candidates will have experience of sourcing, re-cutting and publishing video in a fast-paced digital news environment.

They will have demonstrable experience in creating video in a variety of ways and have a proven track record of being able to spot and source videos from all corners of the internet before competitors know anything about it.
