We are hiring…

We’re hiring at duckrabbit.  From February next year and initially for a 6 month contract, we’re looking to find somebody who can work with us on a range of the things that we do.

We need someone who can scope out initial film ideas with clients and put together coherent and thoughtful project proposals complete with comprehensive budget plans. They’ll get involved with subject-matter research and be able to work closely with clients through pre-production to plan the logistics around a shoot, whether they’re in the UK or overseas.  And then in post-production they’ll manage the feedback process and make sure that the films that we deliver are the very best they can be.  They’ll also get involved in the administration and delivery of the production and storytelling training courses we run in the UK and all over the world.

The job will likely suit someone who is working flexibly from home and the time commitment and salary would be dependent on the candidate.  It could be anywhere between one day and three days a week.  You’ll write well and be familiar enough with spreadsheets and google docs to put together professional budgets and project proposals and keep detailed expense records of our productions.

Some familiarity with film-making would be valuable but there’s a lot that we can teach you too.  Most of our work is in the non-profit sector, so experience of working for or with NGO communications or fundraising teams would be a definite advantage.   We’re keen to employ somebody with an ability to communicate what we do to potential clients in that sector as well as an appetite to explore new avenues for our work.

If this sounds interesting then we’d love to hear from you.  Send your CV to us at contact@duckrabbit.info.  We’re not looking for long essays but do make sure to tell us a bit about yourself and what you think you might bring to the duckrabbit team.

    You haven’t put how much you’re paying the person you’re hiring on your job post … How can you expect people to spend time applying to a job listing if you don’t even mention rate of pay?! Hope it’s at least minimum wage?!

    Hi B,

    pay is something you negotiate. But would you expect someone performing such an important role to be paid minimum wage? We certainly wouldn’t and we look forward to receiving applications from people who can add value to what we do and be rewarded appropriately.

    Thanks

    Benjamin

    Dear Sirs, my colleague Robert Hubbard has told me you are looking for the above position for a trainer with a film background. I have read through what you are looking for and have sent you my CV so you can see how well I fit in with the criteria you are looking for. You can also see my profile on Linked-In. https://www.linkedin.com/in/terryrayhall/
    I would appreciate a conversation with you so we can both find out more and determine the monetary side of the position.

    With many thanks, Terry

      Hi Terry,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We are looking for more than just a trainer – training is a small part of what we do. We’re looking for someone who can contribute to working with our clients through the production workflow to manage projects and promote what we do. If you think that sounds like you then we’d certainly welcome a CV and an email with a bit more information about you (no essays required). We’ll be going through it all after Christmas and hoping to talk to people then. Many thanks.
