Part time & Full time

Associate Director (Marketing / Communications)

We are Yours Sincerely

We’re a young and rapidly growing, Communications and Marketing agency. We’re based in Temple Studios – a thriving creative hub in the heart of Bristol. Since our launch 2 years ago, we’ve grown to become a retained agency for an award winning Fintech business, Western Europe’s largest sneaker site and a leading VFX production studio amongst many others.

We aren’t a traditional agency – we offer our clients a combination of high level strategic consultancy coupled with on-the-ground agency delivery. We also bring a unique combination of Marketing, Communications, Commercial and Digital understanding. Our clients choose to work with us because of our expertise and experience, and stay with us because we work as an extension to their internal team and focus on deliverables that make a difference.

  • A love of training, mentoring and developing people – Whilst this role has no immediate line management responsibilities (although may do down the line), the right candidate will be all about developing the team through mentoring and informal training 
  • A desire to commit to being part of a growing agency working either part time or full time
