Youth & Culture Resident, London, United Kingdom

We are a global communications agency covering everything from healthcare to technology. Recently, the Brand Marketing and Consumer team launched a new specialism in Youth & Culture trends and audiences.

Focusing on work that builds momentum for brands such as Bose, Fitbit, Crocs and Singapore Airlines, we work with brands that have a purpose to bring their stories to life. Working within culture and understanding the deeper rooted collective consciousness that unifies and segregates, we’re looking for residents, or as we’re calling them PR Youth & Culture Residents, to help us dive into culture and create movements.

All about you

  • Bring your passions to workplace
    We want to see the real you! Your passions are the things that separate you, as an individual, from the pack and illustrate what makes you different. At FHF, we want to encourage this and support our employees to show themselves.
  • Finger on the cultural pulse
    We don’t like to guess and we don’t like to pretend like we know what we’re talking about. We always want to be on the cultural pulse because we want to know what’s happening – all the time. We manage to do pretty well, but we’re always looking for the latest talent to show the latest trend to dive into.
  • Consumer of Content Living a digital life, knowing the ins and outs of the digital & social media landscape. Knowing each platform, how they’re typically used and feeling comfortable operating
  • Eye for detail
    The finer details can be the difference between a successful campaign and being on the trending Twitter list for all the wrong reasons… Please make sure we’re going viral for all the right reasons.
  • Voice your opinion – Aptitude in presentation and public speaking
    We don’t simply want “Yes Men/Women” – we want to hear your opinions and we want to be told things we might not have thought of otherwise! You will need to be comfortable presenting your ideas, occasionally in a public format. If you’re not, we’ll work with you to improve these skills.
  • Are you the organised one in your group of friends? Outstanding organisational and time management skills
    Juggling emails, cultural research, brainstorms and making a cuppa for yourself can sometimes happen within the same breath. This role requires commitment and genuine thought in approaching how you organise and spend your time.
  • Next Shakespeare? Knowledge of copywriting and editing
    Confidence in writing is pivotal, as a huge part of our role revolves around communication. Without the ability to communicate efficiently through words, your communication is understandably restricted. We’re looking for someone confident in expressing themselves, with a solid handle on their writing skills to deliver succinct and key messages.
