What type of person should you be?

Here at Collective, we’re a small, close-knit team of committed individuals that see ourselves as a bit of a family. So, as you’d expect, the personal qualities of the people we hire are often just as important as the skills they bring.

The people who thrive at Collective are intelligent, passionate self-starters who truly care about the work they do. To succeed in Collective, you’ll be the sort of person who is proud of their achievements but driven to improve and achieve more.

We keep things simple and operate a very flat structure. We’ll want you to use your undoubted intelligence to challenge, disrupt and question our thinking, but we’ll expect to do the same to you. We aren’t motivated by fancy job titles. Good people quickly earn all the influence and respect they can handle at Collective. For many, the greatest reward is seeing their idea have real impact in the marketplace.
