BEAR is a strategic and creative brand agency based in Camden. Founded in 2000, we flex between 8-12 people in size and cover a range of skills from digital design experts to copywriting pros. The team is made up of creatives and account managers, and is open and collaborative - everyone's opinion counts and there's the opportunity to grow quickly into a more senior role.
The agency is about to launch its own rebrand and new website, and this is a really exciting time to join as we gear up to launch the new BEAR. We are smart, dynamic and full of insightful ideas. We fit the ‘work hard; play hard' mould but it's very much a family feel and late nights are rare. We're looking for a superstar AM to take over several key accounts and offer an even better level service to clients. Could this be you?
