Rate: £25,000 - £28,000, Pro rata (24 hours a week, 3 days)

Responsible to: Engagement Producer

Responsible for: Online Content Creators

Purpose of Job

Rife is an online platform co-created with young people - giving them a voice and covering the stories that matter to them. We develop young people’s digital skills, confidence, experience and networks so they can thrive. We believe young people’s voices should be part of the media landscape, so it is relevant and representative.

In the last 12 months we have seen a significant increase in views for our video content, so we are expanding our capacity to work with young people in this medium. The new editor will work alongside the existing Rife editor to co-create content with young people in order to build our online audience for video content.

This is an editorial role but you also need to be able to manage the whole film production process including the edit.

The Rife editor will join the team during an exciting moment of change – in April 2018, we will shift our focus being a from a council funded platform delivered through youth services to re-imagining our model with young people.
