We Are Hiring!
  • Content that performs is about one thing. Impact.
  • The impact on your brand’s standing in our culture. Its relevance, likeability and stand-out.
  • The impact on your customers. On what they think, feel and do. Now and over time.
  • Most important?
    The positive and measurable impact on your business
  •  
  • While advertising sets out a brand’s promise, it’s our job to produce content that fulfils that promise. This informs our work across all channels.
  •  
  • We judge our content by its success in growing our clients’ brands.
  •  
  • We use our editorial thinking to define a brand’s content strategy then use our expertise to deliver that content.
  •  

We are Seven. We create content that speaks to people, not at them.

 
 
  • What we do

    Making content that people actually want takes a lot of thought. We do it in two steps, and the first usually informs the second. First we define exactly how editorial content helps deliver your brand promise. Then we get on and do it.
    Content Strategy
    Content Delivery
  • Content Strategy

    This is the who, what, why and how of content marketing – ensuring you’re making the right content, getting it in front of the right people and working efficiently.
    What do people want?
    How is this content distinctive? How could it only come from you? Where will people welcome your voice?
    What is the aim?
    What do you want people to know, feel and do? How should content be measured? Can your content be monetised?
    What is
    the right model?
    How to involve all your stakeholders? What structures and processes are needed? How does content complement your other marketing comms?
    What is the distribution plan?
    What formats, channels and frequency? What’s the balance of evergreen, campaign or real-time content? How will people find your content?
  • Content Delivery

    With your content strategy in place, stage two is the ongoing refinement of creation and distribution, being there for people, whenever your brand can help.
    1. Plan
    Applying everything we know to make sure your content’s useful, entertaining or hopefully both.
    2. Create
    Crafting distinctive content for all formats that’s accessible, shareable and welcome.
    3. Distribute
    Combining your owned media channels with paid promotion, making sure the right people see the right content – whether they’re looking for you or not.
    4. Optimising
    Doing more of what works best by measuring everything and taking learnings back into the planning process.
  • That’s the theory of how content delivers your brand promise, but what about in practice? Click below to find out.

    Creative Food Editor, Sainsbury’s magazine

    Do you know your sumac from your za’atar? Have you spotted the next breakfast trend post avo-on-toast? Is posting your gorgeous food pictures on Instagram the most fun you can have in an evening?

    Then this could be the role for you – an opportunity to create beautiful recipes, mix with the UK’s best-known foodies and join the team on the biggest-selling food title on the UK newsstand.

    Sainsbury’s magazine has a 20-plus year heritage of creating inspiring food and recipe content for one of the UK’s biggest supermarket groups. Our readers don’t have to cook…they LOVE to cook and they want to be inspired by achievable recipes using the latest ingredients and mouth-watering photography and visuals. The Creative Food Editor will work on creating that content, originating ideas, discovering new contributors, developing recipes and attending photography shoots.

    Fantastic cooking and home economist skills – and previous magazine and digital experience - are a given for this brand new senior role. In addition, a keen eye for style and visual appeal is also vital, as well as great networking skills, confidence in meeting new people, a willingness to attend functions and events and to be a Sainsbury’s magazine brand ambassador. You’ll be an ‘ideas person’ – no one can ever have too many in our book – and bringing those ideas to life will be as exciting for you as a  7-course tasting menu at The Ledbury. You’ll need stamina, drive, motivation and more than one apron for this job. If it sounds like you, then please get in touch.

    To apply, please send an up-to-date copy of your CV and a covering letter telling us why you would be perfect to careers@seven.co.uk

    Managing Food Editor, Sainsbury’s magazine

    Is it hummus or houmous? Is there gluten in spelt? What’s the fat to flour ratio for choux? Know the answers to these (and lots of other food-related questions) and you could come and work on the biggest-selling food title on the UK newsstand.

    Sainsbury’s magazine has a great reputation for its inspirational food and we are looking to fill the new role of Managing Food Editor. This is an exciting, challenging and satisfying position for a highly skilled home economist and recipe developer. Working across all platforms you will be experienced in both print and digital content creation, have flawless organisational skills and most importantly, love eating cake.

    Organising and processing Sainsbury’s magazine food content will be your main responsibility with key tasks including recipe editing, organising recipe testing, keeping an eye on budgets and proof reading. Meeting deadlines, managing junior staff and outside contributors, attention to detail and excellent editing skills will be second nature, as well as problem solving and staying calm under pressure. You’ll get to cook too! Creating your own recipes – from 30-minute curries to tiered ‘naked’ cakes - to feature in the magazine and contributing ideas will also be part of the job, and it goes without saying that you must have substantial practical experience on a newsstand or digital title. If you are looking for a new challenge, and would love working with our award-winning team on the UK’s most widely read paid-for glossy magazine, this could well be the job for you.
