I'd be ideal. I could help with their verb-subject agreement, for example. Teaching them that in the sentence "ensuring that every single one of our episodes are top quality entertainment" the subject is singular (every single episode) and therefore IS top quality entertainment.

I'd be useful with vocabulary choices too. Like explaining that "facilitate long and unsocial hours" means to make them easier, which unless it makes the time FLY by, this job will not do. It may require them, mandate them, etc, but it's unlikely to facilitate them.

Finally, I can certainly pass edits along in an "open and creative manner." Some days I'd make them into paper planes and fly them across the office. Other days maybe water bombs, or in envelopes with suspicious white powder, just to add a little spice to the boring everyday. I could instigate "dress up" Fridays and deliver the edits dressed as a clown. The list is endless.

When do I start?
