The company

Raconteur was founded on the conviction that expertly produced, intelligent, visually engaging content need not be limited to lifestyle and current affairs publications.

For the last 11 years our Special Reports in The Times and The Sunday Times have delivered high-quality journalism, in-depth analysis and searing clarity to traditionally complex and inaccessible industry issues, capturing the attention of some of the most powerful decision makers across the globe.

Now 60 people strong, Raconteur has grown into a full-service content marketing agency, offering content strategy, creation and distribution solutions to leading B2B brands such as EY, Schroders, Google and Thomson Reuters.

Whether designing an infographic, digital lead-gen campaign or crafting a research report, we remain resolutely committed to providing exceptional, beautifully designed content that achieves business objectives, hits marketing KPIs and wins critical acclaim for our clients.

Our values

Strive for excellence. Be accountable. Genuinely care. Be a Raconteur.

Our culture

Raconteur is based in a large modern office space in Aldgate, with lots of breakout space. Even though the company has grown rapidly in recent years, we still have a tight-knit, supportive and entrepreneurial culture where we thrive on working together to create best-in-class products (which we tend to celebrate with a few drinks on a Friday).

We place a big emphasis on employee engagement (our engagement score through Peakon is 90%), as well as wellbeing, with all staff trained around mental health, and mental health champions permanently in place to offer support and organise activities to promote good mental health.

As a content marketing agency for leading B2B brands, we live and die by the strength and originality of our creative ideas. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that we promote equality and diversity in our workplace, and we encourage applications from all suitably qualified candidates regardless of their race, gender, disability, religion/belief or sexual orientation.
