Science Oxford Film Production Internship

£10 per hour/up to 50 hours (plus travel costs.)

We are looking to hire an intern with experience of film production to work with our communications team over the summer to produce a film about our summer family clubs. Science Oxford runs a series of summer clubs and workshops during the summer holiday weeks. These take place at venues in Oxford, Banbury, Bicester and Witney. We would like to create a film about the clubs, to use on our website, social media channels and YouTube channel to promote our family programme and leverage support for the charity. Here are some examples of films we have made in the past to inspire you;
