About Heard

Heard creates ideas in music, visual and lifestyle culture to help brands find their place within peoples' lives. 

Within the cultural space, too often brands believe that just showing up is enough. Our belief is brands can, and should, play a vital role in the progression of culture, and have a duty to create genuine value for the audiences they want to interact with.

We apply a culture-first approach to everything we do, working closely with our clients on all aspects of their marketing - including brand, content and social strategies, partnership development, and event activations - building ideas and stories that go beyond the ordinary. 

We are London-based but our work is global, with projects in Europe, Africa, Asia and the US, for a range of brands including Sonos, Sonos Radio, Aimi, Asahi Super Dry, Audio-Technica, Shure and War Child. 

Working at Heard

Who you are is just as important to us as what you can do. As a business, we place a huge value on empathy, collaboration and honesty at all levels, and encourage an environment that values our staff’s unique insight, expertise and life experience. We want to work with people who can bring a creative mindset and disruptive thinking to our projects.

We foster a flexible and self-motivated working style based on trust and accountability, where you can work from home two days a week and have 1 day a month paid for by Heard to volunteer during working hours. We provide training and support to help nurture raw talent and potential, with a clear path to career progression and salary growth based on performance targets.

We’re also committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace, which is reflected in both our team and our work. We celebrate the fact that music culture has been built on the creativity of marginalised groups - particularly Black and Queer communities. Therefore, we take our responsibility seriously to platform these and other under-served groups, and to address structural inequalities in the music and marketing industries. As part of this, we actively welcome and encourage dialogue with our employees and welcome the wider perspectives that a skilled, diverse pool of people can bring to Heard, and music culture at large.
