Volunteer Specification: Video Production Assistant #FairyTrollPost

Thank you for your interest in joining Wirral Unplugged, for an exciting opportunity as a video production assistant, where you can gain valuable experience by supporting a non-profit.

Wirral Unplugged’s mission is to ‘create creative kids’: we do this through encouraging innovation, introducing new ideas, promoting reading, play and the arts for children 3-10 and their guardians. Also key to our vision is screenfree time: Why? because we believe that although technology is fab, it can cause stress, limit our connections with others and our creative thinking (We're 'unplugged' both because we disconnect from tech but also because we want to think outside the box!). We want to promote social mobility and opportunity by introducing a wide array of topics, cultures and ideas.

Through the volunteer post of Video Production Assistant you would gain valuable practical experience working for a social enterprise that would make your CV and future interviews stand out. You would have clear targets you had achieved, processes you had followed in order to create videos, problems you had encountered and overcame. You can see how ‘practising’ these skills in a friendly setting could benefit you. Aside from the future benefit, volunteers gain skills, connections with the community and confidence through volunteering.

As a video production assistant, you’ll be asked to help to organise, edit and produce the weekly videos for Wirral Unplugged, which are often craft tutorial videos and are aimed at engaging children aged 3-10. This will include liaising with other volunteers to produce videos.



The voluntary video production assistant position requires between 2 and 6 hours work fortnightly. The voluntary work can be completed remotely and within flexible hours.


No experience is required for the video production assistant role. However, if you have any experience with creating videos, or using editing software, such as iMovie will be useful to the role.
