What and who do we look for at Daresay?

To ensure we maintain our winning formula we hire around a few key criteria:

• Keep it grounded: we admire honesty and straight talking, people who don’t need to use five thousand words when five will do or drop buzzwords to feel accomplished. People who can make the complex seem simple and the simple compelling, are our kind of folk.

• Curiosity reigns: Our team geeks out on what they know and what they don’t know. Be excited to teach and to learn and prepared to raise your hand when you don’t know.

• Get amongst it: We’re a roll up your sleeves, gig-economy, job role-schmob-role kind of place. This means you’re just as likely to see our social strategist laying on the grass talking a puppy into the perfect Instagram story pose for Black Hawk as you are a junior producer. If you thrive in >5 hats, and never want to give up your passion for making awesome shit, you’re for us and we’re for you.

If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to hear from you!
