Our Work

Unique Voice is a nationally accredited social enterprise working frontline in schools and communities across the South West. Delivering creative programmes using the arts as a medium to make a positive and long-lasting social impact.

We create programmes and films designed to enable young people to learn, develop and grow in all aspects of their social emotional development. We provide topical and engaging programmes on subjects such as mental health, crime and anti-bullying with much of our work aligned to safeguarding and early intervention based services through performance, film and workshop programmes.

We create films for charities, schools and organisations that wish to make a positive social impact. We are known for our informative and innovative approach; fusing both our knowledge and expertise of the third sector with our creative skills.  The application of these skills results in the production of films that are current, accessible, and armed with powerful messages.

We’ve delivered films to a variety of different commissioners such as Bristol City Council, NHS, the National Children’s Bureau and many schools. Although we work with a diverse group of organisations our films are predominantly young person led. We collaborate with young people to use their knowledge, imagination and creativity to create content. 

The Role

We’re recruiting for a highly organised, dynamic, creative individual to join the UV team as Visual Content Producer to play a lead role in developing our film content for different digital platforms, commissioners and projects. 

This is an exciting and varied role where you will be working to produce our films from start to finish. From the initial sound-boarding of creative concepts, working with young people to develop ideas and scripts, to receiving and implementing final feedback, you will work with team members and help to manage our pool of freelance film makers throughout the entire process of each film project. 

As Visual Content Producer you will play a vital role in ensuring all films produced meet the expectations of Unique Voice and the many organisations we collaborate with including Crimestoppers, National Children’s Bureau and GWR. You will help plan, oversee and develop high quality content. This will include working with an assistant to produce and film for UV projects. Alongside this you will be expected to manage our team of filmmakers.

Our work is hugely varied; being versatile, creative and imaginative in your approach to planning, filming and editing is essential. Due to the range and sensitivity of topics that we cover with young people, it is vital that a pastoral approach is taken when working with children to create the films. Our creative facilitators deliver workshops to the children beforehand and therefore they will have a base knowledge of the subjects being covered within our films.

You will be provided with all equipment required to fulfil your role including MacBook Pro, Adobe Creative Cloud, access to desktop for editing large projects, film and sound equipment. 

This is a part-time position, 3 days per week, on a fixed term contract and pay is dependent on experience, £23,333 – £31,666 FTE, actual salary £14,000 – £19,000 per annum. Please note this is not a remote working position.
