Creative Director - Events Agency

Creative Director - London

£60 - 80,000

The Agency

This is a brand experience agency creating impressions that count. We have been creating pop-ups, live

events and brand activations for more than a decade.

We believe making people feel valued, creates a different kind of value. Where people feel part of an inner circle

and want to invite their closest friends. Where people keep talking about an experience long after it’s over, reliving

how it made them feel. Where people choose you first and stay with you for the long run.

That’s what we try to achieve in our own company.

We do everything in our power to deliver the individual dreams of the people we work with. To us this isn’t just

business, it’s personal.

Our expertise is focused on the ‘live’ realm of events and experiences. But it’s broad within this category: we do

in-person, hybrid and virtual; we work across all client verticals; we’re equally at home doing B2B conferences or

consumer activations.

For this role, we expect you to have held a Creative Director position either full time or freelance in an agency for

at least 3 years - with the primary focus of your work being events and experiences. This means you’ll be well

● Exceptional written and verbal communication skills with the ability to communicate to all levels

● Highly organized with a keen sense of attention to detail

● After-hours work and overnight travel required
