A bit about DTV

We work with 30+ NGOs and iNGOs - the big and the not so big – in over 25 countries, covering a wide range of causes from animal (WAP, Cat’s Protection, PDSA, WWF), to development (UNICEF, UNHCR, Concern) to medical (Sightsavers, Alzheimer’s Research, Marie Curie) as well as a handful of commercial clients.
Our core business: we are direct marketing fundraisers who help NGOs acquire new donors through direct response television and digital video. We use film to help to inspire current donors to continue to keep giving. We work with media agencies to help NGOs manage response effectively and deliver the best approach possible.

This is an important role within the creative studio that will require you to take ownership of media management, workﬂow and delivery, making sure all postproduction processes and tasks run efﬁciently.

Being part of the DTV Group is a friendly, supportive and exciting place to be. We’re growing and extending our offering around the globe and into the digital space by creating and delivering other types of film and video.
