Careers

We’re always on the lookout for talented designers, strategists, developers, and creatives of all levels with an incredible eye and a penchant for brand to join our team.

That said, we do get heaps of people emailing us – so if you send in a generic cut-and-paste email without a portfolio, you’re probably never going to hear from us.

If you join our team, we’ll back you to the hills: we’ll invest in your development, we’ll care about your life outside of work, we’ll help you follow your passions. So we do ask that applicants show us what you would bring to our team. We want to see portfolios and read compelling personal statements – bin the CV, we know how to look you up on LinkedIn.

If you’d like to hear about new job opportunities with us before we’ve had a chance to post them on our site, sign up to our jobs notifications email here.

We particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups in the creative industry including Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates.

When getting in touch with us, please let us know your preferred name and pronouns and we’d be happy to facilitate an alternative interview if you would find a different format more accessible.

FAQS

What is the interview process like at UnitedUs?

Most candidates will have two interviews. A first one to get to know you and find out more about each other. If successful, we will ask you to do a small project prior to a second interview, and for some roles you may be required to spend half a day working with the team.

How do I apply?

Please email [email protected] with your portfolio and cover letter explaining why you’d like to come join our team and what role you’d like to fill.

Is your office accessible?

Our office is on the first floor of a converted warehouse so it is not accessible to wheelchair users. However, please do not hesitate to apply and we will make reasonable adjustments to accommodate you if your application is successful.

I have additional needs, can I still apply?

Of course! The best ideas come from diversity of thought and experience so we want to make sure that everyone in our team can bring their best selves and ideas to work. As such, we are aware of the Access to Work programme and can help work with you to ensure you have the tools, support and resources you need to excel.

Do you ever fill roles before a job application date closes?

When we receive a really stand-out application, we might bring the process forward - so do get your application in sooner rather than later.

Do you use freelancers?

Our team all have permanent roles but we occasionally use freelancers and contractors for very specialist requirements. So if you have a cracking portfolio or feel you have something to add then send it in!

What kind of thing do you want to see in my portfolio?

We want to see beautiful work with strategic thinking. Hypothetical work is fine but your portfolio will need to include some real projects which have been through the battle of delivery. If you worked on a project with collaborators then we will want to know which part you played.

Can I send in an application even if you don't have any vacancies listed?

Yes! We love to hear from great talent. However, as we receive lots of portfolios and enquiries about roles and internships we will only respond if what you have sent has made us take notice.

I'm a parent - can I negotiate my hours?

For full time members of staff we ask that you’re at work (in the office or virtual) between 10am-4pm, but you can choose your start and end time around those parameters. For example, some of our team do the morning school run so they come in at 10am and leave at 6pm, others start at 8am and leave at 4pm. We want to make sure that you’re there for those unmissable moments - so if there’s a school play or sports day, talk to us about it.

Can we just meet for a coffee?

We do love coffee, and if you just want a chat then do drop us a line. We can’t guarantee that we’ll always be available, but we do make the effort when we can.
