About the company

Uncommon is a highly creative brand and communications creative studio of around 55 people, based in Farringdon, London. We were founded with the belief that business, brands and advertising can make a real difference. And that some brands can do this like never before. They try to fuel a passion or fix a problem in the world by doing things differently. They are the brands that people in the real world are glad exist. These brands are valuable. They are few and far between. That’s why we call them uncommon brands. It’s also why we named our business Uncommon.

Skills Required

We’re looking for someone who’s excited to dive in and learn. Who is motivated and is happy to get stuck in to find an answer, whatever the question. The Runner at Uncommon needs to bring energy and commitment to everything that they do. Even the small stuff quickly ladders up to the big stuff at a start-up. So seeing everything as an opportunity to understand more about our industry is key. You’ll be trusted to take on and manage everything from our petty cash to ordering new laptops to planning events. So a bit of basic experience in budgeting and managing of suppliers would be a bonus. Crucially, to get the most of the role and your time at Uncommon would be great to have a hunger for creativity and the role it can be play in communicating to people. This is not just about advertising – and could easily be an excitement for music, fashion, etc.
