Content Executive

Want to help make people’s experience at work better? So do we.

We’re growing, and we need a Content Executive to join our busy team. If you’re enthusiastic, creative, hungry to learn and ready to launch your writing career in a leading, fast-paced agency, we’d love to hear from you.


Who are we?

Karian and Box is a leading employee engagement consultancy. Through our research, we help our clients understand what engages and motivates their employees and help them to make their businesses even better places to work.

What does that mean in practice? A big part of our work involves innovative research, running employee surveys and asking people in detail about their experiences at work. We analyse their responses and create clear, concise reports for senior leaders. We help them see the people behind the data we’ve gathered and make meaning from it. How are they feeling? Do they enjoy their work? Do they want to stay?

That’s only part of it, though. We also help our clients take meaningful action. That might be with a training guide to help managers lead through the pandemic. It might be with an animation explaining what a company is doing to improve diversity in its workforce. It might even be with a short film about the aftermath of an industrial accident, to get people talking about safety.

In other words, it’s about storytelling. Our clients – including Burberry, Tesco, Nationwide, HSBC, Aviva, and The Co-operative – have stories they need to tell. Those stories need writers, and that’s where you come in.

As a writer in our content team you’d be working with teams across our business to analyse data, interrogate client briefs, explore creative options and shape the stories that will change the daily working experience of people all over the world.


Who are you?

You love stories. You love telling them. You’ve got some experience as a writer, bags of potential, and you’re ready to take the next step in your career.

This is a junior role, so we’re realistic. It would suit someone with a year or two of professional experience, or a graduate with a strong background in writing – the role can adapt to the right person.

We’re not looking for specific experience in our area of expertise. We’re niche, and we know it. You just need to bring some writing skills and the right attitude, and we’ll work with you to grow into the role.

If you’ve got storytelling smarts, you’re not afraid of numbers and you want to help us make work better for people, get in touch and let’s see what we can achieve together.
