Junior Creative

Maybe you’re a blogger who's been freelancing. Maybe you’re a Twitter star who wants to expand beyond 140 character quips. Maybe you’re a copywriter who's good with words and concepts, and has experience of the UK advertising industry.

Or maybe you’re just funny, creative and want a change of direction. Either way, let’s talk. Candidates should be ready to bring enthusiasm and energy to brainstorms, innovation and originality to BuzzFeed posts, and a calm, collaborative approach to client feedback.
