About Wired Sussex

We are the region’s flagship independent not-for-profit membership organisation. We support the digital, media and technology cluster in Sussex. Our mission is to support local digital businesses as they create, innovate and grow. Check out this blog post to find out more about working at Wired Sussex.

We are a small and friendly team.

We also have a podcast studio and an event space with content production facilities. Plus, of course, a great coffee machine, ergonomic chairs and high spec Macbooks. 

We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workforce, and we want to help nurture a digital sector in which anyone can build a fulfilling career. To that end, we particularly welcome applications from people of diverse backgrounds, who are often under-represented at this level, in this sector. 

We also welcome applications from people with a disability or health condition, including those who might require additional support through the Access To Work scheme to perform their role.

How to apply:

Please apply with your CV and a covering letter that is carefully considered and expands on why you would be good at the role. We are happy to accept applications from those who don't feel they currently have all the experience we are asking for, but please address that issue positively in your covering letter.
