With over 5m subscribers across our WWE, Gaming, Film/TV and Comics channels, WhatCulture has grown into one of the UK's biggest YouTube brands. And now we're on the hunt for Video Presenters and Voice-Over Artists to help take us even further.
With roles available both on a freelance basis from home and at our headquarters in the North East of England (Gateshead), we want to hear from you!
Confidence in both yourself and your ability - Not just because shrinking violets make for terrible videos, but because you may be faced with shoots in public situations or busy studios.
Uniqueness - We want characters and people that stand out. It's been the distinctive charm of our current presenters that has helped set the channel apart, and that's something we're keen to build on.
Some experience of web-based media - Understanding the intricacies of digital presenting will stand you in good stead.
A working knowledge of audio/video editing software - Or, at the very least, a strong desire to learn about it. We primarily use the Adobe suite, but other software is available.
A lot of ideas ideas - Our channels currently run regular and original programming, and we're hoping to add a number of new shows and concepts in the near future.
Be open to collaboration - Be it with established or up-and-coming video personalities.
As with any job, being well organised is vital, and with being involved in an extension of our existing website a good writing style is also important. You'll occasionally be tasked with restructuring some of our existing written content into an audio or video package, so understanding what will and won't translate from the page (and how to put it in your own style) is key.
Send an up-to-date CV and a covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your application should also include links to any relevant and recent presenting/voice-over experience, or your personal showreel. It is strongly recommended that you record an original voice-over or presenting sample based on the style of content that we produce.
Unfortunately, due to the sheer numbers of applications we receive, we are unable to get back to everyone individually.
