The Role

At Story+ we’re a team of video storytellers helping regional and national brands do social media video better. From strategy support through to stand-out video campaigns, our videographers push the boundaries of digital content creation every time.


That’s what we want from you; someone with a real eye for detail and ‘no limits approach’ to your craft. You’ll have a depth of experience commanding shoots and know everything that’s needed to bring a story to life through video - from good planning right through to the final edit.


We’re also the team behind Leeds+, the city’s social-first news platform with an audience in the tens of thousands on platforms like TikTok and Facebook. You’ll produce content for these channels too, documenting all things good happening in the city through compelling short-form video.

About Story+

Our story began with the launch of Leeds+ towards the end of 2020, mid-lockdown and with the world at a standstill.


In the time since, our small team of experienced digital storytellers have reached millions on TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, producing engaging native social video features on all things Leeds.


We’re here to explore key local issues, putting people at the heart of every story as well as celebrating the great food, drink and events that make our city the place it is.


But it doesn’t stop there. Under the wider Story+ brand we help businesses tell their own story too - working with clients to engage, market to and build loyal audiences on social media. Whether it's in these partnerships with brands up and down the country, or in the ways we engage Leeds+ audiences cross-platform, we always 'shoot for social', knowing how best to stop thumbs scrolling and stand out from the noise. 


We’re an expanding team working in the heart of Leeds city centre with a studio and production facility at our disposal, and we're now at a really exciting point in our journey.  

The Details

We’re looking for someone who can strengthen our video storytelling capacity, well versed in video production at all stages and an expert in crafting a narrative.


You’ll be a competent self-shooter, with experience filming on broadcast quality camera equipment. You’ll be an advanced user of the Adobe Creative Cloud, in particular Premiere Pro. We want someone to help us build on the momentum behind our growing social media channels, and take the lead on commercial video projects working seamlessly with partners to achieve their goals.
