Studio 1854 / British Journal of Photography

Creative Campaign Strategy & Business Development Role

East London

We are looking for a talented and highly ambitious Junior Content Consultant to join our rapidly growing branded content and creative services team.

Studio 1854 is a visual content agency specialising in the commissioning of narrative-led photography projects for brands worldwide, helping them reach new audiences at scale through shareable and PR-able content that cuts through the noise. Examples of recent and ongoing Studio 1854 commissions include Meet California, a 10-day photography commission that will see four winning photographers embark on a road trip across California; Separation, a series of portraits by Laura Pannack exploring the effects of Brexit on London-based couples; and the DJI Drone Photography Award.

Studio 1854 is one of three strands of 1854 Media, and sits alongside British Journal of Photography and 1854 Awards.

The Role

This is an opportunity to join a young and rapidly expanding creative agency. The role will inspire and empower you to grow and succeed, and, for the right candidate, offer an opportunity for rapid career growth and development.

You will thrive in this role if you enjoy, and believe you will excel at, the following things:

  1. Entrepreneurship – Spotting new opportunities to deploy cutting edge and content-based marketing techniques to new brand collaborations.
  2. Strategy – Understanding and interpreting a brand’s values, market proposition and audience to produce a set of strategic marketing objectives.
  3. Creativity – Conceiving creative, photography-led campaign ideas and digital marketing tactics that will help those brands achieve their objectives.
  4. Persuasion – Selling your creative and strategic ideas to key decision makers within those brands.

Reporting directly to the Head of Agency, the role is initially junior – supporting and learning from the existing creative business development team. We are however hiring specifically for the purposes of training and developing new senior creative business development staff. A successful candidate would progress into this more senior role within the first three to six months.  

Required skills and experience:

We believe that attitude and ambition are innate, whereas experience can be learned. We therefore hire for the former over the latter.

Studio 1854’s unique approach is at the cutting edge of content marketing. We are therefore not necessarily looking for people who have years of experience in traditional advertising, burdened by outdated preconceptions of how brands have marketed themselves in the past. Your experience may still have relevance and your skills may be transferable, but we are looking for people who can see a changing marketing and media landscape and are excited by the new opportunities that this is creating.

Candidates for this role will be excellent communicators and must have:

  • A marketing/digital marketing or business degree with a passion for photography and visual culture.

OR

  • A photography, creative or visual arts degree with a passion for visual culture, business and marketing.

Experience in creative services/agency business development roles could be a plus, but is not necessarily a requirement.

Other details:

Start date: As soon as possible

Salary: Basic, dependent on experience, with a generous uncapped commission package

Term: Six month trial contract with the opportunity to progress to a permanent senior position

Location: Poplar, East London

How to apply:

Please send your CV to pax@1854.media (FAO: Pax Zoega, subject line: Junior Content Consultant) with a brief cover email (400 words max) explaining:

  1. The unique personal attributes that would make you successful in the role.
  2. Why you want the role, both from the perspective of working with Studio 1854 and your own career ambitions.
  3. What elements of your past experience make you well-suited to the role.

Studio 1854 is a visual content agency specialising in the commissioning of narrative-led photography projects for brands worldwide. Each project is accompanied by a series of long-form, typically interview-led articles, published on British Journal of Photography’s website.

  • Ability to thrive under pressure, and write and edit at speed with flair and accuracy
  • Familiarity using CMS
  • An appreciation for contemporary photography
  • Ambition to progress the brand by studying new techniques and implementing useful changes

Ideally we would like to hire a journalist with an interest in, and knowledge of, photography, but our primary goal is hiring a talented writer.
