Who we are



UK's leading specialists in Automotive, Technology & Sports Brand Communications, we're a team of 45 creative comms experts, split across our London and Dubai offices, committed to telling impactful brand stories that matter.

Whether brainstorming a big campaign idea, out on the launch of a new EV (which we've helped organise), creating content whilst hanging off the side of The O2, or delving into the latest research to find a storytelling gem, no two days are the same.

We're looking for someone to join our fast growing agency, who has a proactive mindset, desire to learn, and appetite to help us bring our big name clients' stories to life.



What we're looking for

Suitable for someone who is looking for exciting work and seeking a new challenge within the mobility-tech sector. Someone who is passionate about how new mobility solutions are redefining how the world moves. From concept cars and autonomous vehicles to flying machines and the infrastructures that support them.

The role requires a deep curiosity, a can- do attitude and a natural ability to simplify the complex. You must know (or at least have a desire to know) your AI from your EV, your gigabit from your gigafactory and your LinkedIn strategy from your last mile solution.

This is a core role within the Performance technology team so we're looking for a safe pair of hands with a flair for press release writing, strong media relations capabilities and social media nous. Someone with patience, who has experience working in an environment where things move at pace and often change.
