Just two years after launching we’ve become known for our high-quality journalism and fresh viewpoints, and are a must-read for many founders, investors and others working in startups in Europe and beyond.

What are we like to work for?  

We have a small-company mindset, but big company goals, and can draw on many of the strengths and benefits of a world-respected brand, the Financial Times. We’re friendly, hard-working and passionate about what we do. We collaborate across disciplines and everyone has impact across many areas of the business. We value feedback, honesty and clear communication.

We work with a range of clients across Europe — from industry leaders to growing tech businesses, coworking spaces to events organisers — and have a growing selection of products. These currently include online webinars, sponsored stories, newsletter sponsorship and in-depth reports — but we’re continually developing new products too.

You'll support Laura and the wider team in post-sales functions, supporting the smooth running of campaigns and helping to deliver exceptional results for clients, everytime.  This is an opportunity for an ambitious and motivated individual to kickstart their career in media and learn about all aspects of a modern digital publishing business.

  • Preparing invoices and ensuring clients receive (and pay) them in a timely manner

  • Supporting in general administrative duties such as completion of new supplier forms, keeping our sales database up to date and formatting proposals

  • Keeping a keen eye on the commercial calendar and averting schedule clashes with clear communication to internal stakeholders

  • Act as the “first set of eyes” checking all external links are correct on client activities

  • Creating client sponsorship logos in Adobe XD

  • Editing videos on Imovie for our lucrative Sifted Talks

  • Liaising with external stakeholders to help manage the client signoff process

  • Monitoring campaign performance and communicating opportunities for campaign optimisation

  • Creating marketing briefs and management of the marketing calendar

  • Uploading digital agher and monitoring their performance

  • Proof-reading emails and newsletters to ensure our copy is to Sifted standard and style. 

Who you are:

  • You’ll relish in being organised

  • You love a spreadsheet (strong Google sheets or Excel skills) 

  • You’ll enjoy working in a support role and working as part of a close-knit team

  • You’re excited to work in a fast-growing media startup

  • You’re confident, and enjoy working with lots of different people within an organisation

  • You’re incredibly detail-orientated, and confident in juggling lots of tasks at once

  • You have strong communication skills (written and oral) and you’ll be happy to communicate problems - as well as success - internally 

  • You have a positive attitude and can demonstrate excellent work ethic

  • You’ll have experience in or be excited to learn using a variety of SaaS tools, including Google Analytics, AdButler, AdManager, MailChimp, Asana, Quickbooks and CRM systems which will help you do your role efficiently

What we offer:

  • £23k salary, depending on experience, plus equity equal to 10% of your salary

  • Shiny new technical equipment – we’re a Mac shop generally, but are open to whatever suits your needs

  • £1,000 annual learning budget to spend on technology courses – or anything else that interests you!

  • 25 days of annual leave plus the usual public holidays

  • Flexible working hours and the option to work from home some days

  • Weekly team lunches (virtual for now) and seemingly endless snacks (when in the office)

  • Regular team socials… post-lockdown (eg. pub quizzes, dinners, theatre trips)

  • The chance to have an impact across many areas of the business, and to build and be part of a large team over time
