Please note this role will require you to work onsite.

The Medical Illustration team in UHBW are looking for an enthusiastic and creative part-time video editor to join our growing team. Since the video service was started at UHBW just over five years ago, demand for video has grown in the Trust. As a team, we provide in-house video solutions that cover clinical videography, patient information videos, training films, recruitment and other promotional materials, including some internal communications.

We are looking for a passionate, forward-thinking and considerate individual to complement our growing team of photographers and videographers. Someone who is keen to work for NHS and enthusiastic about putting their skills to use within the National Health Service, where patient care comes first.

Main duties of the job

This role will help to ensure we deliver a comprehensive clinical & non-clinical video service to the University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust and external clients, ensuring all work is produced to the highest possible standards within budget constraints and the timescale allowed. The Medical Illustration service is customer focused and involves providing support and advice to clients. The media produced is used for patient records, publication, teaching and promotional purposes.

You will be working with existing team members, healthcare professionals, clients and patients to ensure all video projects are completed to a high standard and in a timely manner. While the main focus of the job will be in post-production, we are looking for someone who has the flexibility to also help, when required, in all areas of video production.
