About Foster & Kin
Driven by an endless curiosity originating from our background in journalism, Foster & Kin is a dream team of creatives who build and inspire the brands we think the world needs more of. Brands we like to call synchronised businesses™. Where value and values sit at equal height. Where culture is reflected in all behaviour. Where products and services solve real issues. And beautiful design is non-negotiable.


Rather than working from traditional growth milestones, our true fulfilment comes from building a warm, high-performance culture with a team of inspiring, exceptional and diverse talent.

At Foster & Kin we are building 3 units: AGENDA where we present stories in which we share our views and build community. Our AGENCY that builds, positions and evolves start- & scale-up brands into the brands of the future. And lastly ADVENTURES which we use to build our own ventures.

About the person we’re looking for
Everything you do at Foster & Kin should deliver cultural relevance for brands. An extensive knowledge and intrinsic interest in contemporary culture therefore is pretty important. We’re looking for creatives who are more interested in journalism, media and culture than they are in whoever won a Lion in Cannes. Those who have unlimited amounts of great ideas to tell powerful stories. Needless to say we want you to be big fun to work with. Other than that the most important thing is that you bring a new POV to the table really so we won’t bother you with more boxes you should tick.

Your core responsibility
Creating powerful, culturally relevant ideas that help build the brands of the future.
Working on a range of projects which include but also go beyond “advertising” - from work with a journalistic angle, to innovation for brand new business ventures.
Executing those ideas with great attention for detail.

Your profile
No must-haves, only nice-to-haves:
-A bunch of years of relevant experience, preferably in media and / or creative agencies.
-Highly interested in contemporary culture
-You talk to a senior client as fluently as you talk to a young artist
-You build great decks and enjoy presenting
-Great sense of responsibility
-A critical and progressive thinker.
-Excited by the idea of starting in a young organisation in the midst of fast-paced development.

What we offer
-A competitive salary
-Unlimited holiday days
-A warm, high performance culture
-A versatile and multi-disciplinary portfolio of clients and projects
-A great time, a great culture, a bunch of great colleagues, a great office
