Yoorrook Justice Commission is the first formal truth-telling process into injustices experienced by First Peoples in Victoria. Yoorrook has been established as an independent Royal Commission under the Inquiries Act 2014. See here the Letters Patent that set out Yoorrook’s mandate.
In this role, you will lead end-to-end video, audio, and photography production across owned and earned channels – everything from editing quick turnaround video clips after a public hearing through to bigger creative opportunities to help First Peoples tell their truth to a broad audience.
You will have extensive experience creating content and a passion for using your creative skills to make a lasting impact. You will be hands on and execute every step in the production process; from working collaboratively with Yoorrook colleagues and First Peoples telling their truth to design content, to pre-production, filming, editing, and post-production.
This is a fixed-term role until 28 June 2024 with the possibility of extension. Yoorrook Justice Commission will run until June 2025 after being granted a 12-month extension by the Victorian government on 04 April 2023. The final six months of Yoorrook’s operations will aim to ensure that the stories and truths shared by First Peoples are not only recorded but understood by all Victorians.
Yoorrook’s Letters Patent requires it to prioritise the employment of First Peoples.
You will be someone who can harness multimedia to increase engagement from First Peoples while educating the wider Victorian public about the importance of truth telling. You will be experienced in end-to-end video content creation, including production development, shooting, editing, captioning and outputting videos in formats fit for social media and web.
You will have experience in creating and/or editing existing footage into compelling videos that appeal to a broad audience and drive engagement with Yoorrook’s work. You will ensure all content is culturally informed, upholds the highest editorial standards and adheres to Indigenous Data Sovereignty principles including through managing the content consent process.
