What We’re Seeking

Someone who’s highly skilled in creating content for digital & social media. You know how to shoot & edit banging video and epic still photography and you’re ready to work all over the world following and documenting the fastest sport on the earth, Formula 1 amongst many other exciting brands.

 

About Us

We are 16K Agency, a growing digital creative agency working with some of the biggest brands in international motorsport. We are a hungry, fast-paced agency that thrives on brilliant digital creativity. We specialise in digital & branded content, content production, social media, creative strategy, microcontent, and social media management. We are originally based in Melbourne, Stockholm, and now also London.

 

We’re mainly embedded in the action-packed world of F1 racing. We have been creating content at every round of the F1 championship since 2018 which sees us at over 20 international race events per season. Our main task at the race weekends is to create incredible lifestyle content around premium hospitality, ticketing, event and entertainment programs within F1.

 

We are positioned for exceptional growth in 2021 and the people that join us have the ability to shape their future within our highly motivated and passionate team. We pride ourselves on telling great stories over social media. We do this by hiring hungry and highly skilled content creators who understand that the opportunity to work this close to F1 is the stuff you tell your grandkids about. If you think your grandkids will love the stories and you’re an epic content creator then keep reading!

 

The Role

The role as a Digital Content Creator will see you being a part of a team of passionate digital marketers. You’ll inspire and motivate the team to always be pushing the bar higher for the content and strategies we develop for our clients. You’ll also be at the coal face yourself and showcasing your own creativity and production ability, meaning that you’ll need to be brilliant under pressure with untouchable attention to detail.

 

When we cover live events you’ll kick into a higher gear where long days, high pressure, and multitasking won’t make you blink an eye. During the office days, you’ll be responsible for the daily content production to cover various client platforms and channels.

 

You will play a key role in the growth of the agency and we are wanting to see someone that really owns their projects, taking full responsibility for their work from start to finish. We want this to be the best thing you’ve ever worked on and we want someone who’s got the serious creative skills, talent, work ethic, and dedication to deliver. 

 

About You

You have a strong background in digital content creation for social, but also traditional media. You're highly motivated and you can take direction, but you are also a self-starter and eager to get work done. You are also social and a team player, a leader, and digitally fluent. Ideally, you’ll have a passion for motorsport (or willing to learn) and you have a commercial mindset that’s sharp and focused.

 

You’re obsessed with creating engaging content and you know what works. You’re up to date with all the major social platforms and you know what type of content works on them. You can work fast, really fast. This means shooting and editing and publishing often on the fly and almost in real-time. You’ve got slick video skills and your still photography is on point. You can edit things so well even Quentin Tarantino gets goosebumps. You’re proficient in Lightroom, Photoshop, Premiere, and Final Cut Pro. Your attention to detail needs to be one of your strongest points. 

You’re creatively curious and one of your main strengths is your creative thinking. You obsess over client objectives and how to exceed them. You ideally got experience of working with big brands and companies in various industries. This will help you to know what can be achieved and how to make incredible content because you've done it before and excelled.
