Researcher/writer vacancy - London

by Contagious Team

The Contagious editorial team is on the hunt for a new Researcher/Writer to work in our London office.

We're looking for someone who loves the world of advertising and marketing, is fascinated by developments in technology and is downright nosey about what's changing in consumer culture.

You'll act as the first filter for what Contagious writes about, so you'll need a sharp sense of what work is good, what's great and what's a badly-thought out gimmick. You'll see the potential in new ideas and understand what it all means for brands.

Although the bulk of the job is research, you'll also be writing every week so you need a way with words and the abillity to spot a typo.

Note that this is a junior role within the Contagious edit team, so award-winning creative directors probably shouldn't apply. There are also advancement opportunities into a writing role (you will be filling a vacancy for someone who has been promoted into a full-time writer).

A full role profile can be downloaded here.

To apply, please send your CV along with a covering note to

Deadline for applications is midnight GMT on Wednesday 30th September.
