Opportunities at the Trust

There are currently two vacancies




The Anne Frank Trust UK is an education charity that empowers young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to challenge all forms of prejudice and discrimination.  We are looking for filmmaking associates with experience of working with young people at secondary school age to help us pilot our new Free to Be programme in secondary schools in our North West, North East and Yorkshire & Humber regions.


Role description

Working in school alongside a member of our education delivery team, you will support a small group of pupils in creating a short film about an issue of prejudice and/or bullying in their locality.  This will form the basis of a workshop they will create to deliver to their peers and the process will last two days in each school. 


It is expected that you will work in approximately 6-8 schools during our pilot between March and July (i.e. 12-16 days).  Some initial preparation will also be required in the form of creating a simple template so that pupils can create the films quickly and successfully.  Shadowing some of our work may also be necessary.


Following a satisfactory pilot phase, the work will be extended into the following school year and we expect to work with a further 4-5 schools per term.  We anticipate the programme will then form part of our regular work in schools.  Some support of our teams in other areas of the country may be a possibility on occasion.


Person and technical specifications

You should have extensive filmmaking experience and have your own equipment.  You must also be skilled at working with young people. Patience, enthusiasm, creativity, reliability and a sympathy for the values of the Anne Frank Trust UK are essential qualities.


Specifically, you need:


  • In depth knowledge of Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro or iMovie.  Premiere Pro is preferred for its ease of use with mixed media but you need to be able to shoot material, import, edit and output as a Quicktime movie very quickly.
  • Your own laptop with editing software and a DSLR camera that shoots video and a tripod. Iphones would also be useful but we may be able to provide these.
  • Experience of getting around issues of sound by using limited resources as there won’t be time to record sound separately and sync it up with visuals. Equally, making the most of lighting available.
  • Experience working in a workshop environment with secondary aged pupils and skills for facilitating a student led process.
  • Ease in creating storyboards to help pupils capture their ideas and visualize their concept, ensuring that pupils have as much input into this as possible.
  • Punctuality, friendliness and other general professional qualities.
  • Some flexibility in your availability as we need to coordinate with schools to find dates that work for them.


    If this role is of interest, please indicate which region/s you’d be interested in working in and send your CV, a link to examples of your work on YouTube or Vimeo, your daily rate and/or a quote for the cost of working with a given number of schools at a time to heather@annefrank.org.uk as well as the relevant regional manager/s:
