You will have experience in filming and editing creative lifestyle video content for online platforms and a strong portfolio showcasing your cinematography skills and creativity. You will need to be able to engage our readers with thoughtful storytelling and imaginative visual treatment of luxury video.

  • Strong storytelling abilities and a keen eye for detail, with the ability to translate concepts into visually compelling narratives
  • Have a strong understanding of LUXX as a brand, as well as a deep understanding of aesthetics and trends within the luxury industry
  • NCTJ or equivalent qualification and excellent writing skills
  • Able to juggle both longer form and highly produced videos with quicker turnaround video, with a natural understanding of what type of video works on which platform
  • Be comfortable working in a team on collaborative projects as well as working on solo projects delivered to tight deadlines
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to collaborate effectively with a diverse team of creatives and build strong relationships with brands, colleagues, and interview subjects
