Our Application Process

Please note: We receive a significant amount of applications, so if you send in a generic cut-and-paste email without a cover letter or a portfolio, you most likely won't receive an interview.

We will always tell you if you've been selected for an interview or not.

Please apply to us at jobs@majordigital.com.

Application

Please apply to us at jobs@majordigital.com with:

  • Compelling cover letter that explains why you're interested in the role and joining our team.
  • A work portfolio that demonstrates your creative work backed by strategic thinking. If you include collaborative projects, then let us know your specific role.
  • A CV or a link to your LinkedIn profile.

Initial screening

We will invite you to an informal video call that'll allow you to share a little about yourself, and for us to do the same.

We'll ask you more about your experience, interests and aspirations, as well as why you're interested in working with us.

Knowledge assessment

If you're successful at your first interview, we will invite you to a second interview with a member of our senior team, which will last a little longer, and involve a brief task or project walkthrough so you can showcase your abilities and we can see how your mind works.

Cultural add interview

Face-to-face meeting with our Experience Director and a member of the department hiring the role.

This is an informal meeting over coffee where we'll ask you lots of silly questions, and hopefully, you'll ask us lots too.

Then we can give you a tour of the office and media facilities. And you can let us know if you are still interested in the job.
