About the agency
This agency is to the go-to for launching tech start-ups, raising the profile of Venture Capitalists and building the reputation of entrepreneurs. They are well and truly established at the pulsing heart of the UK’s tech ecosystem.
New business leads are coming through every week; journalists are getting in touch for opinions on everything from an entrepreneurial view of Brexit through to hear about the latest innovations that VC’s are investing in.
They are a team of 10 and after this hiring round will be a team of 12.
The most kick-ass thing about this agency is that they offer complete flexible working. In fact, it’s rare that you’d see the whole team in the office on any given day. There are absolutely no expectations around how much time you need to be in the office so if you want to work from home for a month or a day that is okay.
There is a lot of autonomy in this agency so it suits someone who is a self-starter and knows that flexible working is only effective when trust is built. That means work hard and don’t slack off just because you are at home.
