Picsell Media is looking for an efficient and motivated individual with excellent English skills and an interest in digital images, and media or art history, to join its team in Cape Town.

We work with some of the biggest names in the photo library and image archive industry, adding metadata to images and videos

The ideal candidate would have over three years of experience defining keywords for stock and archival images. A degree in art history or photojournalism would be a plus.

The work involves a potential mix of:

  • Adding Keywords to Stock and Archival Images
  • Ability to work with multiple clients using multiple keyword standards
  • Train and be a point of reference for other staff working on stock images
  • Meet frequent deadlines and deal with a fast paced work environment
  • Multitasking and efficient time management

Applicants should be “word” people first and foremost, with the ability to understand and detail aspects of an image, quickly deciding what search terms people would likely use.

Being quick to learn, with a good work ethic and the ability to multitask almost goes without saying.

You will also need to be proficient with Windows PCs and a variety of software, and have a typing speed of over 35 wpm.

The position would be suitable for someone who is already working in the field in a media company, photo library or archives. Recent graduates in art history would also be considered.

Tell us why you want to work at Picsell Media in your cover letter, make clear references to your past keyword and other relevant experiences. Before applying, be sure to visit our website to find out what we’re talking about.
