Photographic Image Library Office Assistant

Monday 1 October 2018
Vacancy type:
Office and administration, Publicity and promotional
UKHQ CrtvServ, Photographic

What we're looking for

The RSPB manages a professional image library – RSPB Images. The library receives around 2,000 photographs from professional photographers 6 times a year. These images require careful and methodical checking for quality and size as well as insertion of relevant captions and keywords. The RSPB's photographic department is a small team and we need help with this area of our work.

The skills you need

You will be office based working on a MAC so a good knowledge of working with this technology would be preferred as well as a good knowledge of the Adobe suite – particularly Adobe Bridge, Lightroom and Photoshop. Knowledge of photography is preferred but not essential Knowledge of UK wildlife is preferred but not essential

Your time

One day a week for 7.5 hours apart from Tuesdays
Role available beginning of November

What's in it for you?

You will not only be helping to contribute to important RSPB related work but will be working in an interesting department in an area that you are hopefully interested in. You will get to spend the day looking at stunning images of wildlife and landscapes and every image sold helps the RSPB raise money for its conservation work so by working to get these images uploaded to the library you will be helping save nature. There may also be some ad-hoc photographic work required from time to time so this could be a good chance to learn or improve skills in that area.
