LifeSite is hiring a Video Editor. Apply Today!
LifeSiteNews is looking for a creative, self-motivated, mission-oriented “full-stack” video producer/editor. As a primarily text-based news agency, LifeSite is looking to reach new audiences and tell new stories promoting the pro-life and pro-family cause by branching out into other forms of content production. The successful candidate will initially be responsible for every aspect of video production, from storyboarding to shooting to post-production and sound design, as well as managing content on our Youtube/Vimeo accounts. He/she will also be intimately involved in defining the direction that LifeSite’s content-production takes, which could include everything from the production of pro-life short films, the creation of regular podcast-style interview programs, on-the-ground video reporting, etc.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to join a vibrant, passionate team of professionals committed to promoting the Culture of Life, and to use their God-given talents to reach literally millions of viewers with the truth about life, family and faith.
This position reports to the Managing Editor and the management team.

Demonstrable videography and editing ability with a strong portfolio
Creative mind and storytelling skills
The ability to work independently as well as in a team setting
Strong personal commitment to the pro-life and pro-family cause
LOCATION: The successful will be able to work remotely from home. However, some travel will almost certainly be necessary in order to capture original video content/assist in setting up home studios for staff, etc.
SALARY: Salary is negotiable based upon need and experience. Keep in mind that LifeSiteNews is a mission-based non-profit, although we always seek to meet our employees' legitimate financial needs.

The references are important. Please be aware that at a later stage of the application process, you will be required to arrange calls for us with your references.
We will contact successful applicants for an interview. New employees are required to fly to Ontario for a week of training in the first month on the job, so a passport is essential for non-Canadians.
