We work differently because today’s world works differently. Our global team works across timezones and cultures to help businesses connect with their customers.

Role Summary:

The successful candidate will be working with one of our agency’s largest clients to deliver on an ambitious content agenda, covering a quickly growing segment of the digital asset and blockchain space.

This is a hands-on role, with duties covering the entire content creation process. The successful candidate should be as confident pitching, interviewing, writing and producing an original piece, as they would be working with a junior journalist to develop and perfect a story of their own.

The Deputy Editor vacancy would be a great fit for a journalist looking to take on more editorial and management responsibilities, or an existing editor with a desire to rebalance their editing load and get back to doing more writing; this role offers a great mix of both.

  • Work with the Head of Content to develop the overall content strategy
  • Create and oversee the day-to-day management of the content calendar
  • Propose and develop ideas for coverage and stories
  • Research and write stories in a range of formats, from short news article to full-length feature pieces
  • Copy-edit and review outgoing copy and editorial


Role Requirements:

  • Strong technical written communication and editorial skills.
  • Ability to write in an engaging manner for different audiences and across different topics.
  • Demonstrated experience producing content in a range of formats.
  • Creative and proactive in proposing new story angles and ideas.
  • High attention to detail and ability to operate in a deadline-driven environment



  • Experience working with freelance journalists and remote writers
  • Confident working with and analysing data
  • Proven project management and organisational skills
  • Background in technology or finance
