VaynerMedia is a global creative and media agency built for the now. Born in social our work is now full service, simply loving big ideas that connect and create real change for our clients business. We are independently owned, founded in 2009 with offices in London, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore, Sydney and Mexico City. And we’re not too bad at what we do, with our work winning in Cannes Lions, the Clios, D&AD and The Webbies to name a few. 

Here in London we have huge ambitions. We’ve doubled in size over the last year and broadened both our client list and the kind of work we’re doing for them. Our roots are in social and we love it - it’s where we get to understand different audiences, to experiment, to gain insight and to see how people really engage and respond to ideas. 

We are creative and media in equal measure because both are equally important in developing effective communications. A lot of our work in-house (with our own production, edit and motion teams) because execution is key to effectiveness. We believe 100% that brands can be built on digital platforms and part of our model is built bottom up, flipping the traditional advertising model and process on its head. We don’t play to agency/industry norms and our culture and energy reflects that.

We have an incredible client list across the UK, EMEA and Globally. Our ideas live and breathe in organic and paid social but also fully integrated campaigns including TVCs, radio, press, OOH (you name it we’re there). Our difference? We learn fast - from what we see and how our audiences really act, alongside cultural cues to create our integrated campaigns.

Infused with the DNA of our founder, we pride ourselves on our entrepreneurial spirit. Being an independent agency affords us the freedom to be bold and stray from convention. It also allows us to pivot quickly, which is key to succeeding in an ever-changing market. The same way Gary was one of the early YouTube influencers, VaynerMedia has been the forerunner in many opportunities, serving as alpha/beta launch partners with platforms from Facebook and YouTube to TikTok and Snapchat. 

But ultimately we are people people. We are skills first rather than where you studied and who you know. We’re here to change advertising so we thrive on free-thinkers with big ambitions.

Sound like you?

The Role:

We are creators, creative industry rogues and stars. We are not just on the internet; we are creating the stuff the internet and the world wants to see. We’re curious, hungry and passionate about what we do - and the people we do it with. We move so fast and make so much good stuff it's tough to keep up with. And we need more folks just like us, the unconventional, less-obvious, unseasoned (or over seasoned) creative pros. But above all - passionate makers and culture shakers. 

Want in? We love subversive artists, obsessive makers, dedicated creators and we don’t care if you’re baby fresh to the workforce or working on your third act. What’s your hustle? Documentarian? DJ? Sports junkie? Fashionista? Blogger? Vlogger? Retired logger? Are you an Insta-fiend? An unabashed TikTokker? Or both? We’re down with all of that. Just as long as you love making and are really good at it. 

 

The task at hand:

  • Mastering the ability to turn any branded content into a volume of social gold (clips, gifs, graphics, photos, stories, copy, etc.) 
  • Working with a wide range and quality of video and static imagery - from a collection of photography to short video clips and films
  • Collaborating with our creative and strategy teams, to create and manipulate video, photography, copy, gifs, short clips, streaming stories etc. 
  • Owning and honing your design, editing and writing skills utilising standard industry software and social platforms
  • Wrangling, rolling with your teammates on rapid fire requests and seriously tight timelines while keeping a cool, proactive attitude
  • Sharing your passion and skills and learning craft from others - adding your ambition to that of the agency
  • It’s not just drop and stop - it’s keeping an eye on the content you create, reading the comments and seeing when things take off and feeding that back in to your next ideas

Desirable skills and experience:

  • Has a demonstrable passion for making creative content across a spectrum of media platforms - social, streaming, AR, music, film, interactive, etc. 
  • Extraordinary design, editing and/or writing skills
  • Actual videography or design education OR the equivalent professional experience OR side-hustle/passion project that shows your skills and stuff
  • Familiar with almost every content creation format out there: Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Creative Suite & design templates in Canva or Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, TikTok, Instagram, FB Live, etc.
  • Self-starter - unafraid to move from thinking to doing - from ideas to making
  • Responsible, accountable, cool and always kind because you love the magic of collaboration and learning
