About Tony Blair Institute for Global Change:
At the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change we are dedicated to making globalisation work for the many, not the few. We do this by helping countries, their people and their governments, address some of the most difficult challenges in the world today – beginning with those where we think we can break new ground, offering leaders new thinking and new approaches. Our staff – over 200 of them, based all over the world – are working on some of the most intractable problems around issues of co-existence, governance, the peace process in the Middle East and renewing the centre.

Working across the organisation, this new role is a fantastic opportunity to shape and implement the Institute’s visual engagement strategy. We are looking for a creative and proactive person to fill this role, who brings experience with them of planning, capturing and editing public-facing visual content.

  • Create cutting-edge visual engagement content, through your experience of using equipment and software for filming, capturing high quality audio and editing (including but not limited to professional camera equipment and Adobe Creative applications)
  • Use experience and a practical understanding of wider public engagement and communications approaches to develop plans to promote different types of visual content to reach the right audiences
  • Use evaluative tools to measure success, report to stakeholders and recommend changes to approaches as needed

Accountability:

  • Shape plans for on-the-ground filming opportunities, from liaising with other teams and storyboarding, to directing and managing the filming and editing
  • Collaborate with teams across the Institute to plan and create visual content that highlights the various aspects of our work
  • Collaborate with the press team and design team to plan visual engagement opportunities
  • Work with teams across the Institute to ensure that the wider approach to content is joined up, both in terms of planning and delivery

  • Ensure that visual engagement products are planned, executed and delivered to deadlines and a high standard
  •  Experience of proactively spotting opportunities for creative, engaging visual content and seizing them
  • When necessary, work with freelance film crews to support our work

Judgement:

  • Apply sound judgement to capturing and using audio-visual content
  • Use sound judgement to advise teams across TBI on how best visual content can be used to showcase their work and impact

Ambition

  • Stay up-to-date with best practice and new innovation, sharing and implementing these within our visual engagement efforts
What We Look For in Our People:
This is a role in a fast-paced team, working within complex policy areas that are highly scrutinised. Therefore, the successful candidate for the role should be able to display the majority of the following:
  • High levels of attention to detail and accuracy
  • Superb organisational and prioritisation skills with the ability to work reactively
