Buzzbar is the UK’s first walk-in media and marketing shop, dedicated to providing high-quality creative services at affordable rates. Our highly-skilled specialists deliver website design, marketing strategy, graphic design, copywriting, video production and more to inject some creativity into our clients marketing needs. We believe in a more personal approach; our unique side-by-side model allows our specialists to work tactically and transparently, with clients, not for them.
Value and accessibility is at the heart of everything we do, so we’ve done away with the retainer model and implemented a pay-by-the-hour structure that guarantees our clients pay only for the work they need. Buzzbar are here to boost brand identities and help businesses to grow. We’re proud of our diverse team, unique workflow, and transparent approach to what we do, catering for every shape and size of entrepreneur, artist, business and corporate.

We are a start up and the ideal candidate would be someone keen to build with us and commit to making an active and positive contribution to the development of the company.

A friendly work space in the heart of Shoreditch. We foster a positive work culture built on hard work and fun. We encourage input from our team and welcome new ideas and ways of working. Our core team is small and close-knit, giving you the opportunity to work closely with other specialists and creatives throughout your working day.
