This role could be ideal for two very different types of people:
Perfect candidate 1 – You would love to become a Video Editor or a Video Producer but perhaps lack the experience, here is an opportunity to work with a creative digital agency that enables progression. We continue to expand at a fast rate, so we need a “pipeline” of talented and able people that we can trust. The right person should be promoted after around 12 months.
Perfect candidate 2 – You’d like to work in a fun, caring and vibrant environment. You might have had more senior roles in the past, but you may have taken a career break and like the idea of reduced responsibilities in the workplace and looking after an office of friendly people.
We are looking for someone with a sunny disposition, a person that is well organised with fantastic attention to detail. You’ll be happy to carry out some of the more manual or clerical office tasks, but you also like to take on responsibility for your own schedule of work. Our managers are trained to work with you to get the right balance based upon your skills and interest in progression, so if you like to be kept busy and like a challenge, Revolution Viewing could be for you.
A day in the life
When you arrive at work you’ll begin to run through various “opening the office” tasks, these will include checking all areas of the office are tidy and free of mugs and glasses. You’ll then move into the kitchen, emptying and then filling the dishwasher and wiping down surfaces. You’ll check to see if the floor needs mopping and you’ll empty the bins if needed.
Once you’ve completed your initial run of tasks you’ll go to your desk and plan the rest of your day, this might include a stocktake, placing a food order, receiving and logging deliveries, tidying the stockroom. You will also have 30 minutes of general office cleaning to complete.
At around 12.15pm you’ll begin to prepare lunch for circa 30 people, ready for 1pm. We’ve been providing lunch every day for the entire team for 15 years, it’s probably easier than it sounds. The food is mostly cold, and preparation is mainly opening packs of ham, salmon, chicken, then slicing bread and chopping some veg for a salad. At 1.30pm you will turn on the dishwasher, tidy away condiments and wipe the surfaces.
If you are working part-time then you would leave the office at 2pm, if you work full-time then you will work through some of the full-time remits stated further down in this job spec.
Quite simply we want to hire the best person for the company and for the role. If that person needs a full-time (FT) job, we can expand the role to suit that. If that person would rather a part-time (PT) role, then so long as that person can fulfil the part-time hours specified, then we are fine with that.
The job remits are broken-down into the remits for PT and then additional remits for FT.

Key Skills, Experience and General Outlook
To achieve the upper-level of the salary range you must provide evidence that you have exceeded each of the key skills required. If you don’t have the relevant experience and require further training/time to reach the required skill level, then this will be reflected in the salary offered.
- Ability to manage many tasks at once, re-prioritizing where necessary and working in a logical manner.
