  • Ideation is a huge part of the job we’re looking for someone who likes a good think session.
  • You’ll work closely with our copywriter, as well as our creative director, digital & design team (very sound) to develop award-winning concepts, pitches, and presentations.
  • You’ll have the freedom to call lots of shots, helping to shape the look, feel and tone of client projects and drive Verve’s creative identity.
  • We’re looking for unexpected, insights based thinking that is always results-focused, the kind of campaigns that get people thinking.

  • Enjoys working in a collaborative way and getting your hands dirty.. a good attitude is a must as our team are lively and progressive.
  • Loves to problem solve and knows how to present and sell ideas brilliantly
  • Is ambitious to make award winning work at a European and Global level… if Cannes Lions is a dream destination, then you’ve come to the right job posting.
  • If you can scamp and build storyboards, that would be extra nice.
