Getting in with The Crowd
We’ve grown steadily since 2012 and stayed true to a vision that brings together agency best practice with freelancers that have the depth of knowledge you find in-house. To be a good fit for our collective you’ll probably be at account director level or above and have the full package:
- Be a complete geek in terms of sector knowledge i.e. emerging technologies or FinTech.
- Be at the top of your game in terms of one or more comms disciplines but not afraid to get your hands dirty. There’s no requirement for pure strategists here.
- And despite being a freelancer, actually enjoy being part of a team that is genuinely collaborative and supportive. So you need to be communicative and committed.
The perks are fairly obvious: you get to contribute to cool accounts, work as part of a team of diverse, senior professionals, (so you really can go on holiday and not check emails) in a positive and supportive culture, working the hours and days you chose, from home, for great rates.
