About The Running Channel

The Running Channel (TRC) is a YouTube channel and content brand. Co-founded by Adam Tranter, the CEO of the successful PR and Social Media agency Fusion Media and Andy Baddeley, two-time Olympian, parkrun WR holder and Cambridge University graduate.

The channel’s content is aimed at English-speaking runners around the world, ranging in ability from first-time parkrunners to more experienced marathoners. It consists of educational how-to guides, tips, fun and exciting challenges, features, series and more.

We are very much a startup, and the working environment is exciting and fast-paced, which means that you need to be flexible – in terms of day-to-day tasks, hours worked, and a job description that evolves as we do. If you would like to be part of a fun, vibrant and passionate team – and most importantly to contribute directly to the direction of the company, content and brand as we grow, then this is the right place for you.

The Role

Videographer/Editor is a key role at TRC, reporting to the Head of Content. There are a lot of moving parts to video production, especially with the fast turnaround times for YouTube content creation. This role is ideally suited to someone with 2-5 years of relevant experience.

We are a small team and are looking for someone who is happy to do everything themselves if required – without the assistance of a large crew!

The role will entail:

  • Filming on location or in-studio, either individually, alongside presenter(s), or with other videographers.
  • Capturing raw footage and audio on location or in-studio.

  • Shooting video and stills, operating various cameras, drones, lights and audio equipment.
  • Working to tight deadlines.
  • Making sure music and images used are appropriately licensed or rights free.
  • We encourage all our staff to be creative and make suggestions for videos and content – there will be opportunity to contribute to ideas, and be part of the planning process.
  • Work outside normal working hours (eg evenings and weekends).
