Do you believe you could help redefine a whole industry?

We’re a passionate bunch at SkinViva: 8 doctors and dentists and a growing support team, training and delivering world class aesthetic treatments at our busy Manchester clinic and training academy. What we do changes people’s lives, and we’re on a mission to raise the bar across the whole industry.

We need someone with equally as much fire in their belly to help us reach as many people as possible.

Do you want to inform, empower and inspire people to make the best choices for them?

Do you want to have a real impact on a small but growing business, and make the role your own?

If so, we might want to meet you.

The Role

  1. Planning, shooting, directing, lighting and editing consistently engaging, empowering and informative video to be used across SkinViva, SkinViva Training, and our elearning business, https://drtimpearce.com. Your aim will be to drive traffic, engagement and leads, that deliver bookings and customer retention. Your outputs will range from short informative videos for SEO purposes, to adverts and Facebook Live posts, all way up to in-depth paid training videos. You will tailor the output according to its intended platforms, e.g. Instagram, YouTube, Vimeo etc.
  2. Responsible for taking high quality photos, particularly client before and afters, for use across our various marketing channels, including basic graphic design e.g. to place the photos within branded templates.
  3. Undertake basic graphic design as needed across the business, for example to create a basic visual for a Facebook advert.
  4. Ad hoc project work for the Directors as required.

What We’re Looking For

  1. Minimum of one year’s experience of professional videography.
  2. Experience of DSLR cameras and Adobe Premier, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
  3. We want someone with natural talent. You will need to demonstrate through your portfolio that you have a flare for excellent visual techniques and video editing.
  4. Completer finisher. We are a relatively small business so we won’t spoon feed you, which means you’ll need to use your initiative to see things through from the start to the end, to agreed deadlines.
  5. You are instinctively excited by progress; eager to develop your skills; and always looking for ways to raise the bar. This is the first in-house dedicated videographer role we have had, so you should be comfortable with shaping the role yourself.
  6. Organised. Because our doctors’ time is expensive, it’s imperative we make the most of the limited time we have to shoot. You will need to develop slick processes for filming that result in the fewest interruptions possible (e.g. re-takes).
  7. Quick to react. You will need to react quickly when opportunities arise to shoot. For example, if a gap opens up in a doctor’s diary, we often fill that with a Facebook live session.
  8. A show-off! We want someone who gets a buzz from showing off what they’re capable of creatively, and is passionate about producing clear and beautiful videos.
  9. A people person. We’ve learnt that it’s crucial to be able to put the people who you’re filming at ease if you’re going to get the best quality video, so you will need to be able to reassure and relax people and engage them to bring out their best.
  10. Audience-focussed. You will need to be naturally motivated to take the time to ‘get’ our audience; to understand their motivations, hopes and fears, and know how to produce videos that best meet their needs.
  11. Self-confident. You will be directing your videos, so you need to have laser-focus on the end-goal of the project and the self-confidence to challenge colleagues or stop production when you need to, to ensure that goal is met.
  12. Adaptable to change. We need someone who is comfortable with the fast pace of change that comes with small-business life.
