Video Content Producer

Were looking for an enthusiastic, energetic and unflappable producer / project manager (3-5 years' experience in video production) to join us at this challenging but exciting time. 


You know things we dont, have skills that we dont and see the world in a way that we cant. And we love you for that.

About us


Knock Knock is an award winning creative production company, formally based in Shoreditch and now operating remotely, predominantly from locations in London and the South East. We have a long history of creating beautiful and engaging work for Londons top advertising and marketing agencies as well as some very lucky brands and blue chips.


Last year, we used our enforced Covid holiday to take stock, to reflect on the highs and lows, the wins and the losses. Our big realisation was that the jobs with the happiest clients, most fulfilled staff and more often than not the best outcomes, were those where we worked directly with the briefing client themselves.


We found we were at our best when developing meaningful relationships with invested stakeholders, and able to offer solutions to their creative and strategic problems.


So far this year, we have made some substantial wins in tech, health, fashion and the public sector and are now preparing ourselves for a new era of growth: with fresh faces, updated systems and progressive ways of working.


In general, we favour smaller crews over huge productions. We love to collaborate with clients creatively. We get excited by advances in creative technology.


A rebrand is imminent and you will be involved in the practical and creative conversations around this. Your opinions and ideas matter. You will be someone who makes a difference to the trajectory and speed of our growth.


Our culture is inclusive, supportive and fun. We take our work very seriously, but not ourselves. Life is short and you deserve your day to day experience to be rewarding and enjoyable. We dont tolerate bullies, bigots or BSthat goes for our clients too.


Some admissions

  1. We havent given our socials much love, sorry about that. Were lurkers and likersthis is something we plan to change.
  2. We closed our Shoreditch office last year and have no plans to take on a new one at the moment. That said, regular in person sessions will take place in London.
  3. We are looking into flexible working hours and revised holiday options, but have yet to work out the practicalities of this. Its an ongoing conversation you can be a part of.

If you’re still with us..


Youre smart, warm, confident and calm. You get a kick from utilising your natural organisational and interpersonal skills to keep projects on track. You understand the creative mindset and enjoy playing your role in making great work. 


Youll be a safe pair of hands, responsible for the smooth production of video and motion graphics projects. You will take these projects from client brief through to final delivery. Youll manage staff and freelancers alike, keeping an eye on timings, budget and deliverables. You will get a kick from being the organizer at the heart of a job; the person who keeps projects on track and delivered to the very highest standards, both technically and creatively.


You will be able to clearly demonstrate a track record in project management irrespective of scope, budget and timeline. You will be a self-starter that shows initiative and can hit the ground running with lots of opportunity to make the role yours.

  • Recognising and recruiting the best freelance talent 
  • Producing edits - bringing your eye for detail to the fore 
  • Assisting with the development of new processes, fit for new ways of working.
