Our client is looking for a Content Strategist to join the team in their Brighton office.

To support continued growth in their client portfolio, our client is looking for a talented strategist to join their content team and drive audience growth for a number of key clients.

Skills & profile
The successful candidate will have relevant experience working in an agency setting, client-side, in-house at a publisher, or experience building an audience in a personal capacity. Knowing how to build and maintain an audience will be second nature, and the successful candidate will also have a solid understanding of how search engines work, as well as creative flair.

This is a client-facing role, so the successful candidate must be comfortable and confident dealing with stakeholders of all levels, from marketing executives to CEOs.

We create bespoke, high quality content strategies for our clients, so it is imperative all applicants understand how to analyse the performance of digital content. An inquisitive mind, and a desire to learn about digital measurement and analytics is essential.

Perhaps most important is a tight cultural fit. We’re a small team in a small agency, and we want to grow our skills, not our headcount. We want someone who can grow with us professionally, enhance our company culture, and have a damn good time doing it.
