About the event

Earth Wind & Tyre is Renewable World’s bespoke wind-themed cycle challenge. Now in its fifth year, the route runs from Durham to Edinburgh and passes by 11 iconic wind farms. It is a two-day road cycling and fundraising event. This year we expect to have approx. 60 cyclists taking part.

The role and responsibilities

We are looking for a talented, committed and enthusiastic volunteer to join our on the road production team as our official Videographer for this year’s Earth Wind & Tyre cycling event. You will form part of our event support team of approx. 18 volunteers and will work closely with the Event Photographer.

As our official Event Videographer, you will be responsible for documenting the event as it unfolds, from start to finish. You will follow the riders (in the designated media support vehicle) along the scenic route, capturing video footage of key moments throughout the event, as well as filming some soundbites and short interviews.

Once the event is over, you will then be responsible for using the footage captured to produce 2 short films (approx. 45 seconds and 2-minutes long) that portray the event. These films will be used on the Renewable World website and across our social media networks to celebrate this year’s event, to promote the event in subsequent years, and also with the view of raising interest more generally in Renewable World and our future events.

This is a very exciting project to be involved in, and one in which you can take on a lot of creative responsibility, capturing the event in your own unique way through the medium of video. You will also be contributing towards the fundraising success of this event, helping to raise vital funds for our renewable energy projects overseas.

Please note that this role will require early starts and long working days during the event. You will also be in shared accommodation (twin rooms and a shared dormitory on Saturday night).
