Creative Strategist (Connections), Creative Shop Studio EMEA

(London, United Kingdom)

Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.

At Creative Shop we unreservedly believe that creativity is what drives innovation in every aspect of the modern world, disrupts industries, improves the status quo, and helps brands tell the stories of tomorrow to the right people at the right time.

As a Creative Strategist (Connect role) within the Creative Shop Studio team, you'll play an essential part in re-inventing the way brands connect with culture and communities, by developing branded content and experiences with the world's best Media and Entertainment partners (i.e. Film Studios, TV Networks, Publishers, Talent) to live on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and the next set of Facebook ad platforms.

We are looking for someone with experience in branded content (ideally short form for mobile) and you've probably got a background in advertising/media/digital/PR and/or entertainment/publishing. You're creatively driven, but a project manager/business developer at heart. Making things happen comes naturally to you; you cultivate opportunities and turn them into briefs that inspire the team to do the best work of their careers.

You're a team player who loves to work with a mix of people from different disciplines but you're also comfortable to get stuck in by yourself. A highly dynamic work environment with lots of opportunities to proactively input and impact gets you excited. This role is based in our London offices.
