Strategy & Operations

Futureproofing the business and keeping the lights on

We don’t have a crystal ball but we do have teams dedicated to understanding our landscape – our retailers, consumers and industry. To help us do that, we also need the right operational teams to get the most from our spaces and projects.

Never worked in publishing before? Fine by us. We have a lot to learn from other industries, whether that’s elsewhere in media, FMCG, retail or tech. New perspectives are often exactly what we’re after. Roles within our strategy and operations teams often work right the way across our business – so whatever job you’re doing here, there will be plenty of variety and collaboration across a range of departments.
