The Role

One of the key aspects of your role will be to plan the various productions that will be your responsibility to complete.

You will be responsible for identifying locations, logistics, equipment/lighting, briefings and anything else that is required in order to plan a successful shoot.

There may be multiple shoots in one day, so it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the right equipment, battery power, memory and all tools required to see you through the day.

You will also be responsible for coordinating internal resources that are part of any production, ensuring that they are booked in and are adequately prepared.


Your primary role is to capture great content. From iPhone, to GoPro, to DJI, Sony and Canon - you will be working with a range of devices to capture the all important video content.

You will find yourself in a range of environments - indoors, outdoors, on the beach, in the water, you name it, you will find yourself there.

You will work alongside the marketing team to ensure that the required content is captured and also with the editing team to ensure content is transferred promptly and in a structured manner.

We want to see examples of videos you've previously produced, so be sure to send us some examples. Additionally, you will be required to apply for this role with a video application.

The third, but oh so important aspect of the role is communications based. Your job will be to effectively distribute the content that you have created across digital and social media channels, driving engagement, managing interactions and responding with follow-up content.

You will also be in charge of managing certain aspects of our communications strategy, with your input required at development stage and your analysis/reporting required throughout the execution stage.

You must have fun throughout the whole process - working with the people you meet, the places you visit and the team you work with at SwitchDXB. We want your personality to be vibrant, dynamic and engaging - something that comes across in your content and communications.

The Little Details

You will be working in a small, but growing team - all of whom are committed to our mission of helping our community to live better.

Your role will be split between our office (currently in JLT) and out/about in Dubai (with camera in hand!).

You must embrace many different forms of exercise, nutrition and wellbeing activities - it's part of our culture.

We will regularly participate in team activities and events - both related to Switch On & Switch Off.

Your working week will be Sunday to Thursday, but sometimes you will be required to work weekends.

We take a holistic and balanced approach to working - we want to get the best out of you, not the most.

You will get all UAE public holidays off, 20 days paid leave and an extra day off for your birthday.
