We're hiring - Senior Editor (Birmingham)


Big Button is a UK Top 50 strategic video agency with bases in Birmingham, London, and Boston MA. Our purpose is to partner with organisations to help them deliver maximum success from video, and we’re looking for a talented Senior Editor to work in our Birmingham office.

You’ll have at least 5 years professional experience as an editor, and be an expert in at least one leading NLE package; we work on DaVinci Resolve, but if you know AVID, FCP or Premiere like the back of your hand we’d like to hear from you. A knowledge of After Effects and Photoshop is also highly desirable, as well as a developed technical awareness of related areas such as AI, audio mixing, shared storage, encoding, and file formats. You may already be working at senior level with some team supervision experience, or you may feel like you’re ready to step up. Either way, your ‘professional’ experience must be from a paid work setting, and not as a hobbyist or student.

As an editor you’re fast, creative, and able to tell a great story even if it’s buried deep in the rushes. You’re experienced in observing strict brand guidelines, interpreting complex briefs, and working independently under the pressure of tight deadlines; your accuracy and quality control skills are excellent, and you take feedback well.

We value customer service above all else, and because of that our clients stay with us for many years. You’ll need to demonstrate a similar commitment to delivery, attention to detail and problem solving.

The role requires a mature attitude, a keen creative eye (and ear), and the ability to generate ideas. You’ll be a confident speaker, a proven team worker, and comfortable expressing your ideas to colleagues and clients. We are a growing team; your opinion will count and your creative contribution to our award-winning work will be valued.

You’ll be joining a team of 4 Editors and 2 Motion Designers; the team thrive on a ‘coaching’ management style, and you’ll be expected to help develop and support new/junior members, occasionally stepping up to run things when the Head of Post is absent.

We are committed to the wellbeing of our team, and have recently adopted 4-day working.

If you’d like to be considered, please look at the work on our website to get a sense of who we work for, and what we do. Then, if you think your creative approach fits well with ours, please send your CV, showreel, and a few words describing your experience and why you think you’re right for the role to: careers@bigbutton.tv This is a senior position so your skills and creativity need to be highly developed, but we’re also looking for evidence that you share our attitude and approach to customer service and team-working.

Salary is negotiable based on experience, but in the region of £40K per annum plus a generous profit-share bonus (see below). Shortlisted candidates will be required to attend Big Button’s Birmingham office to complete a skills test.
