Currently, we are looking for a Digital Content Creator with a focus on creativity, advertising, and design who loves storytelling and gets a buzz from inspiring others with unique content on digital and social channels.

Tasks & Responsibilities

Creative Content
Your role is to inspire ADCN members and the creative and marketing community on a weekly basis with unique content for ADCN’s new website. The content you create, produce and publish should cover a range of topics in relation to advertising, design, media, technology, arts, science, culture and creative leadership and relevant to ADCN’s audience.
