RSA event podcasts, videos and RSA Animate and Shorts films reach a global online audience of millions, and engage a lively community of RSA Fellows and the wider public across a range of social media platforms.

We are looking for a brilliant camera operator for RSA Events, filming events in the public programme in order to produce high-quality online videos.

Building on our 250 year history as a beacon for enlightenment values, the RSA is currently at an exciting period in its history. We provide platforms for leading experts through the UK’s most ambitious free public events series, our projects generate new models for tackling the social challenges of today and we are building on our network of over 28,000 Fellows around the world – these are achievers and influencers from every field with a real commitment to progressive social change.
