VaynerMedia has been recognised for its work at Cannes Lions, the Clio Awards and The Webby Awards. It is part of the VaynerX family of companies.

VaynerMedia London has huge ambitions. We’ve doubled in size over the last year and broadened both our client list and kind of work we’re doing for them. Our roots are in social, and we love it because it is where we get to really understand different audiences, to experiment, to gain insight and to see how people engage in real life and respond to content. We are creative and media in equal measure because both are equally important in developing effective communications. We produce a lot of our work in-house because execution is key to effectiveness. We believe 100% that brands can be built on digital platforms and our model is built bottom up, flipping traditional advertising model and process on its head. We don’t play to agency/industry norms and our culture and energy reflects that.

The client you will be working on is an established name in the beauty industry, a parent company to a number of globally recognised brands. They have recently committed to developing their “Masterbrand” across social media and VaynerMedia is supporting them in this work – delivering social media content across key platforms. Our focus is in on their Masterbrand positioning & key brand purpose pillars – Sustainability & the Climate Crisis, Human Rights, Gender Equality, and the circular economy. For an experienced social media practitioner who is passionate about these important issues, this is a dream job!
