Strategist - Maternity Cover

24th April 2024

At Nice and Serious, we believe in making creative work the world needs. We have our feet firmly on the ground and know the world doesn’t need more of the same. It needs us to draw a line in the sand, and back the people fixing things. It needs us to change minds, and make people demand better.

Our team of 20 people is a mix of filmmakers, strategists, art directors, coders, designers, copywriters, animators and client service. Over the last 15 years we’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the most innovative, purpose-led brands and charities including WHO, Greenpeace, IKEA, YMCA, Switchboard, Unilever, Virgin and WWF. We’re a proud B-Corp and you can find out more about what that means ​here​.
