Getting in with The Crowd: careers
We’ve grown steadily since 2012 and stayed true to a vision that brings together agency best practice with 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 (we average 21 years’ industry experience) 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 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 and enjoy sharing your ideas.
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.
B2B Technical Freelance Writer
We are on the lookout for an independent experienced technical writer to remotely join us at The Crowd working as part of a team for a FinTech client for whom we provide PR and content.
With a great portfolio of B2B technical and product copywriting projects, you will be comfortable writing directly for the developer community. A working knowledge of the AML and KYC space would be a bonus.
B2B Tech Media Relations Freelancer
We are on the lookout for an experienced part-time UK tech media relations freelancer to remotely join us at The Crowd working as part of a team on a range of retained B2B tech PR accounts.
Probably at account director level or equivalent with a solid best practice foundation gained in-house with a blue-chip company or with a respected agency, you should be able to lead accounts and have a portfolio of great B2B tech coverage that you’ve achieved for your clients.
A working knowledge of the broad tech media landscape and strong industry relationships within the media covering emerging technologies e.g. AI, security, cloud, etc. combined with a proven pedigree in pitching is what we are after.
If you share a collaborative spirit, want to keep the freedom of a freelance life but combine it with the comfort and security of being part of a team, then why not ping over your best pitch to our founder Sam Howard and see where it takes us.
