As leaders in organisational culture, brand and attraction, we’ve been telling stories for clients across the employer, education and youth markets for more than 25 years. Now, we’re about to share insights, ideas and inspiration in a whole new way for us, through our storytelling app – backpack. As Multimedia Journalist, it’ll be your baby as you become the focal point for the content we create, collate and curate for it.

Multimedia Journalist is a brand new role for us. That means you’ll get to shape the direction of backpack. It’s destined for big things. And a lot of its success will be down to your expertise in knowing what killer video, audio and written content looks like – and experience of producing it. From video production specialists to copywriters to researchers to sector thought leaders, we’ve all sorts of experts in house. That’s why this role as Multimedia Journalist will involve building collaborative networks across our agency. Confidently engaging our people, you’ll inspire everyone to share, suggest and make content that builds our brand and aligns with our mission to change futures for the better.

As backpack is beginning to ramp up, you’ll need to know how to create editorial frameworks to organise content, pull together content for different formats (from podcasts to interviews), and establish processes for commissioning, curating and publishing content. As our Multimedia Journalist, that’ll also mean creating your own content and editing contributions from both inside and outside SMRS.

With an analytical mind and commercial mindset, you’ll ideally have a multimedia content / journalism qualification or equivalent experience. A deep understanding of what quality content is and the ability to calmly manage multiple content production schedules are also essential.

As natural explorers, we’re excited by the potential of fresh content for our clients, brand reputation and backpack app. If you are too, apply now to join our journey
