We Are Hiring!
  • Content that performs is about one thing. Impact.
  • The impact on your brand’s standing in our culture. Its relevance, likeability and stand-out.
  • The impact on your customers. On what they think, feel and do. Now and over time.
  • Most important?
    The positive and measurable impact on your business
  • While advertising sets out a brand’s promise, it’s our job to produce content that fulfils that promise. This informs our work across all channels.
  • We judge our content by its success in growing our clients’ brands.
  • We use our editorial thinking to define a brand’s content strategy then use our expertise to deliver that content.

We are Seven. We create content that speaks to people, not at them.

  • What we do

    Making content that people actually want takes a lot of thought. We do it in two steps, and the first usually informs the second. First we define exactly how editorial content helps deliver your brand promise. Then we get on and do it.
    Content Strategy
    Content Delivery
  • Content Strategy

    This is the who, what, why and how of content marketing – ensuring you’re making the right content, getting it in front of the right people and working efficiently.
    What do people want?
    How is this content distinctive? How could it only come from you? Where will people welcome your voice?
    What is the aim?
    What do you want people to know, feel and do? How should content be measured? Can your content be monetised?
    What is
    the right model?
    How to involve all your stakeholders? What structures and processes are needed? How does content complement your other marketing comms?
    What is the distribution plan?
    What formats, channels and frequency? What’s the balance of evergreen, campaign or real-time content? How will people find your content?
  • Content Delivery

    With your content strategy in place, stage two is the ongoing refinement of creation and distribution, being there for people, whenever your brand can help.
    1. Plan
    Applying everything we know to make sure your content’s useful, entertaining or hopefully both.
    2. Create
    Crafting distinctive content for all formats that’s accessible, shareable and welcome.
    3. Distribute
    Combining your owned media channels with paid promotion, making sure the right people see the right content – whether they’re looking for you or not.
    4. Optimising
    Doing more of what works best by measuring everything and taking learnings back into the planning process.

  • Creative Food Editor, Sainsbury’s magazine

    Do you know your sumac from your za’atar? Have you spotted the next breakfast trend post avo-on-toast? Is posting your gorgeous food pictures on Instagram the most fun you can have in an evening?

    Then this could be the role for you – an opportunity to create beautiful recipes, mix with the UK’s best-known foodies and join the team on the biggest-selling food title on the UK newsstand.

    Sainsbury’s magazine has a 20-plus year heritage of creating inspiring food and recipe content for one of the UK’s biggest supermarket groups. Our readers don’t have to cook…they LOVE to cook and they want to be inspired by achievable recipes using the latest ingredients and mouth-watering photography and visuals. The Creative Food Editor will work on creating that content, originating ideas, discovering new contributors, developing recipes and attending photography shoots.

    Fantastic cooking and home economist skills – and previous magazine and digital experience - are a given for this brand new senior role. In addition, a keen eye for style and visual appeal is also vital, as well as great networking skills, confidence in meeting new people, a willingness to attend functions and events and to be a Sainsbury’s magazine brand ambassador. You’ll be an ‘ideas person’ – no one can ever have too many in our book – and bringing those ideas to life will be as exciting for you as a  7-course tasting menu at The Ledbury. You’ll need stamina, drive, motivation and more than one apron for this job. If it sounds like you, then please get in touch.

    To apply, please send an up-to-date copy of your CV and a covering letter telling us why you would be perfect to careers@seven.co.uk

    Art Director, Sainsbury's Magazine

    Drool-worthy cakes… rich, sumptuous curries… squeaky-clean salads… If you love looking at pictures of tempting food, then designing the UK’s best-selling cookery title on the newsstand could be the job for you.

    Sainsbury’s magazine has been inspiring the nation to cook for over 20 years. Featuring the best chefs and recipe writers, and commissioning photography from top-class food photographers and stylists, has kept the award-winning magazine at the top of its game. The highly-coveted role of Art Director will give you the chance to work with the best in the business and communicate with over 3 million readers.

    This job is demanding and exciting. Running the art and picture desk, commissioning photography, layout design and attending shoots are the biggest parts of the role. But you will also be adept at coming up with ideas for all aspects of the magazine and its brand extensions, managing budgets and colour proofing. In addition, working across all areas of the magazine content including travel, health, features and lifestyle will be a large part of the job. There will be time to eat cake (and we always have plenty of it!) but the role will suit someone who is super-organised, a brilliant people person and who is also highly creative. This is a senior role so we will expect you to have had several years’ recent experience on a high-quality national magazine at Art Editor or Art Director level. Of course we are not just a print title – there is a website, social platforms and other brand extensions too, so digital experience is vital.

    To apply, please send a up-to-date copy of your CV outlining both your recent print and digital experience, with a covering note telling us why you would be perfect for the role to careers@seven.co.uk
