Job description

With offices in Skopje, Brighton and Miami, and a team in Serbia, Sopro provides sophisticated digital marketing services to forward thinking businesses, from boutique startups to global brands and sector leaders.

Receiving a Best Place to Work award by the UK Business Awards 2021, we’ve been busy collecting awards for our people, service, technology and business results. With over 100 new hires in the last 12 months, Sopro has maintained its position as one of the fastest growing digital marketing agencies in Europe.

The role

Your focus will be on delivering exceptional results for our clients by empowering our people to adapt and thrive.

In this role, you will be a champion for our company’s values, promoting inclusivity and transparency to create a workplace where all employees feel supported and empowered to take control of their career paths. You should be passionate about leadership and culture and eager to work with a diverse group of internal stakeholders to cultivate these qualities across the organization.

We are looking for someone who is committed to driving innovation and continuous improvement in our talent management practices. If you are a self-motivated, results-oriented individual who is passionate about building and developing people, we want to hear from you.
