· Ali Turner · Discussion

There’s never a dull day at Leeds-List.

Leeds-List Office

An innovative start-up that’s ready to scale up, Leeds-List is looking for bright, intelligent problem solvers to join the team.

Leeds-List is a new breed of media company. A place where quality is more important than quantity and ads don’t get in the way of the user experience. We’ve found a way to drive revenue without sacrificing our readers – and we’ve done it all with a small, passionate team of go-getters. But now we’re growing. And we have an opportunity for you to join one of the most fast-paced, exciting companies in the city. Could you be our new Account Executive?

We’re challenging the norm

While traditional media companies have struggled to adapt to the digital revolution, Leeds-List has thrived. Why? Because we’re doing something different, we’re bucking the trend and we’re forging our own path. Our model is unique and built around our readers. SEO, virality, data analytics, they’re all weapons in our arsenal, but the real secret to our success is our respect for our readers and their time.

It’s not what you’d expect

Leeds-List Office

On the surface, Leeds-List looks like just another magazine, albeit totally online. But behind the scenes, it’s so much more than that. Our new business people aren’t afraid to say no to clients who don’t fit our aspirations, our account managers go the extra mile to find a brand story people want to hear and our writers use response marketing techniques to take you from the first word to the last. We’ve brought the agency model to the media world – and that makes it a really exciting place to work.

It’s all about results

Few media companies are as response driven as we are. It’s at the heart of everything we do – and we’re not just talking about client campaigns, it’s just as important to our editorial content. After all, why write an article if no one’s going to read it? Traffic, engagement, time on page – we measure it all, so we can turn insight into impact.

You never stop learning

Leeds-List Office

Leeds-List has a culture of sharing. We’re invested in training staff and helping them to reach their potential with a mix of internal workshops, progress development plans and handy resources, like our little library of copywriting books. We may be small, we may be local, but we expect the best and we know how to bring it out in people.

The sky is your limit

Leeds-List is the kind of business that constantly challenges you. No two days are the same and you’ll be working on a huge variety of projects. But it’s more than that. We move fast, we adapt quickly and we have big ambitions, so there’s loads of potential to grow within the business, and because we have a flat hierarchy, you can make an impact right from the start.

We’re all in it together

Leeds-List Office

Our success is a real team effort. We’ve filled our nondescript office chairs with hardworking problem solvers who are passionate about what we do – and we all give 110%. So you’ll be surrounded by people who are just as ambitious as you are, people who will muck in and make a project a success, even if it means getting their hands dirty.

You’ll get to know the city better than anyone else

It’s our job to uncover Leeds’ secrets, so you’ll get to know the city as never before. You’ll explore, you’ll try new things and you’ll help us champion this wonderful place that we call home. Along the way, you’ll have all kinds of adventures, from attending opening parties to meeting city influencers – this is not your normal 9-to-5.

It’s a nice place to work

Leeds-List

Our offices are on Park Square, so we’re right in the heart of the city, but we can still make the most of the sunshine in the summer. The location is particularly handy for our favourite members of the team – we have two office dogs, a stripy lurcher called Tigger and a beautiful black lab called Meg. Just add flexible working hours, birthdays off work and champagne whenever we win a new client, and you’ve got a proper nice place to work.

Come and join the team
