Help build the best digital campaigning agency in the UK and Europe

In 2016, Hines Digital (HD) was a part of every major national campaign in the United Kingdom — designing and developing the infrastructure that powered the Remain Campaign and the Prime Minister’s leadership bid. In 2017–2018, we’re going to plant a permanent flag in the UK: becoming an indispensable part of the digital infrastructure for conservative campaigns and causes.

As our first permanent hire in the United Kingdom, you’ll be the face of Hines Digital in Europe. You will help prospective clients see digital opportunities more clearly, and help Hines Digital to better understand the challenges our prospective clients face. You’ll need to be a strategic thinker, a strong communicator, and a creative problem solver — quickly digesting, analyzing, and confronting our prospective clients’ challenges so that we can solve them. 

We are looking to you to open our London office and work closely with our US-based leadership to grow our international business. The ideal candidate will have a background with an agency, consulting, or communications firm, or deep relationships within the Conservative & Unionist Party and center-right nonprofit organizations, and either a track record of sales success or extensive experience in account management.

This is a rare opportunity to work in a fast-growing company with an international client base that spans across corporate, nonprofit, and political sectors. If you want to work at the cutting edge of digital strategy, then you’re in the right place.
