Arbroath Football Club are seeking a motived volunteer videographer to join the club and as we look forward to playing our football in Scotland’s second tier, the Ladbrokes Championship.
As everyone knows our videographer Neil Douglas is stepping down from the Gantry to focus on making a full recovery and we know we have very very big shoes to fill!
The main responsibilities of the videographer include, capturing the action of a live match day and editing it down to a 8-12 minute highlight package which can be used on the club’s website and official social media – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
As well as having your work shared on the official Arbroath channels and the SPFL channel there is always the chance that a unique moment during a game will end up with the clip being shown on “A View from the Terrace” or one of the national news channels.
You will be given admission to Gayfield and all away stadia as part of the Arbroath FC media team and will have access to the Arbroath playing squad and management team on match days for interviews.
Ideally candidates will have a knowledge of an editing suite – Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Davinci Resolve, iMovie etc to cut the highlights down into a highlight package and have a suitable camera which can be used capture the action.
There is the chance for the candidate to put their own stamp of identity on how things are presented and we appreciate those those who think out of the box and have their own ideas to apply.
We fully appreciate that we are looking for someone who is a highly skilled individual and who can take on the position as a volunteer.
This is a big ask in any walk of life but as a part-time football club we wouldn’t be where we are without our volunteers as part of our football team.
We have been very fortunate in the past with Neil and our previous videographers but if you are passionate about football and this appeals we would love to hear from you.
Please send a brief introduction, an example of your work (Youtube, Vimeo links) and your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
