Hi, I'm Daniel Barnett, a barrister specialising in employment law. I'm creating a new YouTube channel containing 'explainer' videos across a wide range of legal topics, explaining the law in bite-size chunks to those who cannot afford legal advice.
The role requires reviewing videos in detail, checking every image, checking all spelling and punctuation on captions, and making active suggestions to improve the video.
You'll need to work irregular hours; a video might come in for review in the morning, or lunchtime, or the evening (our video editors are based in different time zones). Although I recognise life sometimes interferes, as a rule I want the videos reviewed and editing notes returned the same day - ideally within a couple of hours. That's why this role is ideal for students.
Many of the changes you'll need to make to the draft videos involve amending the editor's choice of wording for captions. You'll need perfect spelling and punctuation. Most importantly, you'll have an immaculate and instinctive grasp of nuance. It is unlikely you will have these skills if English is not your first language.
It'll be nice if you're familiar with basic concepts of UK law, for example you know a case name is written as 'Bloggs v Smith', not 'Bloggs versus Smith', and you'd shiver in horror if you saw a video which had images of gavels or other US symbols. But this one isn't a dealbreaker for me; the right person will be able to learn this pretty quickly.
