Head of Trends (f/m/d)
We’re on the hunt for someone with excellent communications skills, an analytical mind and a fascination with brands and marketing to become Head of Trends for Contagious in London.
This senior position within the Editorial team will be responsible for leading Contagious’ trend output, including identifying marketing trends and creating and editing trend reports for Contagious Online, Contagious Magazine, briefings and events.
Our ideal candidate will have a sound understanding of marketing and advertising. Some writing experience is a plus, and a talent for a clear, concise and engaging way with words is a must. You’ll have an interest in technology and an uncanny ability to connect the dots between creativity and business. We need someone who is extremely well-read and always eager to learn more. You’ll get the chance to delve deep into a variety of subjects and interview leading experts in those fields. You’ll be part of a busy Editorial team and as such will get the chance to discuss and debate what we should cover and why.
As the Head of Trends, you’ll be expected to represent Contagious on stage at our events and deliver presentations to brands and agencies, so public speaking experience and an aptitude for building PowerPoint decks would be beneficial. In any case, you’ll need to be comfortable communicating in writing and in front of an audience.
This is a senior position that would suit someone with relevant experience either at an agency or brand, or working within a journalism, research or trends role.
