If you’re driven, passionate, and make a good cuppa – we might just want you!

Our Careers Page

How do you fancy being part of a team which is constantly learning, innovating, and doing cool stuff every day? Part of a team that will make you feel valued, challenged, and throw you in at the deep end with live projects for expectant clients?

Sound good? Unfortunately we are not currently recruiting for full-time positions, but please read on as we tell you more about our work experience opportunities…

Work experience

We currently have opportunities for two work experience placements per year in our animation team, as well as two work experience placements per year in our video production team, each lasting for up to two months.

Placements are suited to college or university students, and will see you gain experience in using industry leading software such as Toon Boom, Adobe Package, and Final Cut Pro.

Placements are unpaid, but can lead to paid work as part of our freelance team in the future (more details below)

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for people who are passionate, punctual, have a willingness to learn and keen to build up their skills in a workplace environment.

What will you do?

For the placements within our animation team, you will be working on the visualisation of scripts, character design, style direction, storyboard, animation, and post-production.

We’ll start you off with trial runs, with us acting as the client as you work on previously completed projects. If you can ace those, there will then be the opportunity to get involved with live projects for expectant clients  – paid work as part of our wider freelance team.

For the placements within our video production team, you will have the opportunity to shadow the team during their work, and edit some previously live projects. As above, the opportunity for you to come on board as part of our freelance team and undertake paid work on live projects with us is available.

What will you gain from the placement?

You will gain experience using industry leading software in a workplace environment guided by a friendly, approachable and down-to-Earth team. This experience will stand you in good stead for any future studies or a career in the field of video production/animation.
