CAREERS

We regularly have full time and part time digital marketing jobs, & opportunities for freelance, work experience and interns.

Culture is really important to us at The Creative Collective and as such who we choose to work with is super important.

We are a fast paced company and most roles are multi-faceted which requires exceptional organisational, time management and prioritising skills, ability to adhere to budgets and pre-defined briefs and an ability to cope under pressure.

You should have high energy and passion for what you do, a commitment to delivering excellence and a hunger to prove yourself. You will be prepared to become intimately familiar with our current systems, processes and procedures and be entrepreneurial and commercial in your thinking.

Although we have a solid team of full time and part time staff across our offices on the Sunshine Coast and in Newcastle, we often have overflow work. Some of our freelancers have been working with us for several years and are very much a part of our team, attending our social functions and a part of our private Facebook group – our ‘virtual’ office water cooler. Freelancing means you can get the best of both worlds – you get to play on your strengths and bury yourself in what you do best whether that be SEO, PPC, social media management, PR, graphic design or otherwise. We supply you with a steady stream of work and you bill one person who pays – us! Please note we do have high expectations and only hire people who are reliable, able to communicate well and adhere to our systems and procedures. If this sounds like you, see some of our current opportunities below.

Please note, we do not have any need for illustrators, copywriters, videographers, photographers or graphic designers at the current time as these disciplines only represent a small part of what we do.

We are a digital marketing agency and as such we are most interested in people with SEM, social media and data analytics experience.

Don’t know where your skills sit? Need to upskill? Take our test and we can connect you to up to date digital skils training. through our sister company, The Training Collective!

The end goal for anyone who works with us is to keep our clients expectations exceeded, their businesses kicking marketing goals and our competitors envious. If you are driven, ambitious and love the sound of all of this, apply below.
