Job Title: Videographer/Editor
Job Type: Permanent
Location: Johannesburg or Cape Town (Mix of office / remote working)
Reports to: CW//UK Project Lead
Born in South Africa and with quickly unfolding global ambitions, Clockwork is an award-winning communications agency, with offices in London, Cape Town and Johannesburg. 140 people strong, we are an independent agency that competes at the highest levels and works with some of the world’s largest, leading brands. With a pronounced strength in content, social, strategy and public relations, we’re not “a digital agency”, but we believe that today, everything is digital.
Our UK office opened its doors in Jan 2021 and is growing at a fast pace following a number of exciting client wins. Punching above our weight, Clockwork UK is notably the global social and production agency of record for Microsoft Xbox, and the content and influencer agency for Peroni (UK). With a handful of other clients and more joining the list every month, the London office is growing quickly.
While our UK presence is expanding, we believe strongly in South Africa’s creative talent. This is why we are launching CW//UK Studios: a multidisciplinary hub of excellence, built and designed to create world-class, industry-leading creative collateral, based in South Africa, and servicing clients out of the UK office. Our ambition is to build a team of brilliant people that have an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to do great work in collaboration with our clients.
This team will be based in South Africa and employed by Clockwork SA, but it will work exclusively on global accounts in collaboration with our UK office.
