Intern - Digital Video Project

Posting Date: 05-Aug-2022

Location: London, GB

Company: EBRD

Requisition ID 30884
Office Country United Kingdom
Office City London
Division Communications Department  
Contract Type Intern 
Contract Length 06 months 





Role Overview


An Intern is required for a 6 month period to support a digital project that will deliver a new video platform. Working within a cross-departmental project team of staff from the IT and Communications departments, the Intern will play a central role in migrating video content to the new system and assisting with the delivery of new digital video features for our external and internal websites.


This position has an anticipated start date of October.


The Intern, Digital Video, will support a project to deploy a new video platform that will be used by the EBRD to deliver video content to external websites and its staff intranet.


The intern will be trained in several software platforms and as such needs to be a candidate who is generally comfortable with learning new technology quickly and understanding how it can be utilised to good effect and support business change. They will also need to carry out basic project management duties as they track and plan their work and liaise with others in doing so.


The Intern will also work on change management tasks associated with the project, to ensure that EBRD colleagues are well-informed about future changes and so that business processes can be adapted as needed. As well as working on documentation to support these tasks, the Intern will collaborate with video production and digital delivery staff to inform and train them in new processes as necessary.


The Intern will report to the Principal, Online Products, whilst liaising closely with a number of stakeholders in the Bank’s IT and Communications departments.


Applicants should note:

  • Whilst there is a very small element of video content creation involved in this position, it is not an editorial or video production role per se. Nor is it a technical role requiring coding / development skills.
  • This is a hybrid role involving approximately 50% of the week spent at our Canary Wharf office, with work done remotely at other times (more time can be spent working in the office if the intern prefers). This is a paid Internship.
