Day off for your birthday

Plenty of scope to develop your career in a fast-growth business

We are looking for two people to join our Public Relations and one to our Advocacy, Insights and Mobilisation team. You will find full descriptions of all three roles on our ‘join 89up’ page.

To apply for these opportunities, please send a video explaining why you would be the right candidate. Think about whether you want to work in PR, or is Social Media and policy for you.

I am constantly encouraged to explore my interests as well as to challenge myself. I cannot imagine starting my career at a better place than 89up." - Sambhaviy Kumaresan


"In the almost two years I've been part of the 89up team, I've received a double-promotion, landed my words in national news outlets, gained valuable press contacts from around the world, organised international media moments reaching millions of people, and received bespoke training from an expert team. On top of all this, I've had the privilege of being part of a company that's in the top 1,000 fastest-growing in Europe. 89up has been the perfect place to launch my career" - Lewis Redmond
