Content and Communications Lead

Join Entrepreneur First as they are looking for a Content and Communications Lead


At Entrepreneur First (“EF”), we believe that a small number of exceptional people will have an extraordinary impact by creating the technology companies which shape the future in ways we cannot yet imagine. We also believe that for many of these individuals, entrepreneurship is not an obvious or entirely legible career path. 

We exist to identify, and amplify the impact of, these individuals. We do this via our unique approach to company creation, which sees us identify and work with outliers before they even know they’re outliers, right through to the day they prove it. We call this Talent Investing. 

The companies built at EF are now worth over $10bn. They include Tractable (a computer vision unicorn), Cleo, Omnipresent, Aztec, Airbank, Transcelestial and many more. The portfolio is fast growing, with its companies having increased in value by more than 70% in the past year.

EF is funded and backed by some of the world's best tech founders and company builders, including Patrick and John Collison (Stripe); Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), Tom Blomfield (GoCardless and Monzo), Sara Clemens (Pandora and Twitch); Nat Friedman (GitHub); and Matt Mullenweg (Wordpress). 

Having raised our Series C round of investment at the end of last year, we are well-capitalised out to 2026, and have ambitious plans to further scale our impact over the coming years. 


In this role, you’ll lead Entrepreneur First’s communications strategy across both owned and earned media, sparking awareness and curiosity amongst exceptional future founders, innovators, and investors. You’ll define EF’s core messaging and narratives, partnering with our local teams and agencies to tailor them to audiences around the world, and bringing them to life across press, social, our website, video, podcasts, speaking engagements, and new platforms. 

This is a new role on a growing team, with the opportunity to build content into a strategic advantage for EF and to influence wider marketing strategy. Reporting to the VP Marketing, we’re looking for someone who enjoys flexing across both high-level strategic questions and the detailed wording of a press release. 

What You'll Do

Create and execute a content marketing strategy to generate compelling content to increase brand awareness, drive leads, and engage our community. Act as EF’s editor-in-chief, overseeing the editorial calendar and developing stylistic standards, including voice and tone guidelines.
