Job description

Are you an experienced creative video creator? Do you speak fluent English? Then we should get to know each other!
As a Senior Creative at team5pm in Cape Town, you are the creative owner of projects and responsible from treatment to final delivery. Your role goes beyond providing creative input; it's about finding the right words, crafting an effective script, and creating a story that exceeds our clients' expectations. You'll ensure the quality of the produced content and verify that it aligns with the creative concept.

Additionally, you'll be responsible for creating the shotlist for filming days. During production, you may act as a director. You'll be present on filming days to oversee quality and content and resolve any unforeseen issues. In the post-production, you have an active role in the edit.

Another crucial aspect of your role is actively coaching and developing team members in the (post-production) studio. You'll offer support, guidance, and feedback to editors to strengthen their skills and competencies.

So who are we?
We are team5pm! A full-service video agency and strategic video partner for brands and publishers. Offering in-house strategy, content creation, paid and organic distribution and research - all based on data - our goal is to innovate how businesses use video. With offices in Amsterdam, Cape Town, Stockholm, and Warsaw, our team of more than 100 video experts has a global network with national and international clients (such as Prime Video, GAMMA, KPN and bol). Our video cases have won awards from (inter)national award shows, such as The Webby Awards, The Global Search Awards and The European Video Awards. Read here all about team5pm, our (inter)national customers, and your potentially new colleagues!
