Content strategist

Purpose

We aspire to be the go-to agency for ambitious businesses who are looking to evolve their products and services, reputation or culture through their brand, and we are fortunate enough to work with the likes of LEGO, Aon, London Irish and Fujitsu to do exactly that. Over the past few years, this has also meant that our work has become increasingly global - with active projects across North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. 

We are looking for the kind of person that seeks out new vocabulary to expand their lexicon, is fascinated by vernacular, and likes to flex their linguistic muscles… But also knows when to drop the fancy words and deliver simple, punchy and effective messaging. You’ll be working with us to define and execute end-to-end brand content and copy; from capturing brand tone of voice, to planning and writing international thought leadership. This role is perfect for someone looking to flex their strategy and planning skills alongside copywriting.

Culture and further information

UnitedUs recognises that our dedicated team helps the business to achieve ambitious goals by going the extra mile. We, in turn, reward their dedication and commitment by building a culture of reward for our people who are fully supportive of the organisation and the place we want to build. With this in mind we are always finding ways to support the health and wellbeing of our team, foster inclusivity and champion diversity.

We love studio life and believe that meeting up in person and bouncing ideas off of each other is best done when you don’t have to Slack each other or book in a Zoom call. At the moment, we’re operating remotely and starting a phased return (at your own pace) to the studio until everyone is fully vaccinated, with the option to work from home one day a week indefinitely.

Applicants must have the existing right to work in the United Kingdom as we are currently unable to sponsor work visas at this stage.
