INTERBRAND – Verbal Identity /
Full-time
Interbrand has been the world’s leading brand consultancy, for over 40 years – having  pioneered iconic work and forged many of the brand building tools that are now commonplace. We know that in an age of abundant choice and speed of innovation, customers’ expectations are moving faster than businesses. While incremental change is still essential, it’s no longer sufficient. It takes bold moves to leap ahead of customers and competitors. We call these moves iconic moves.

By turning customers into participants, we help our clients strengthen their brands on an ongoing basis – our approach gives them the confidence to make iconic moves that spark desire and create utility, driving extraordinary results.

We're looking for someone who's excited about everything to do with words: creating names, developing unique voices, turning strategy into storytelling. Someone who knows how to write well, and how to think and talk about how their writing fits into the broader world of strategy and design. Someone who wants to work on brands from any and every industry, from materials science to consumer electronics. Someone excited to have a thirteen-syllable job title.
