Role Description

We are looking for experienced writers, creators and communicators who can deliver expertly crafted content across a variety of media for a broad range of blue-chip clients.

As a core member of a dynamic and fast-growing editorial team you will be responsible for researching and producing compelling, intellectually rigorous concepts and content for some of the world’s leading enterprises. From in-depth reports to podcasts, infographics and social media copy, we craft and execute end to end campaigns for companies at the forefront of finance, technology, healthcare and other fields.

The appeal of the job lies in its constant variety: no two client briefs are alike.
