The opportunity

With strong local roots, but an international footprint, Friday Media Group is a great place to work. We’re a positive bunch, full of drive and not scared of hard work, but there’s no hint of ‘corporateness’ – we prefer the relaxed and friendly approach. We try to devolve responsibility as much as possible, which means there’s freedom to make decisions and, well, do your job.

There’s a lot going on here, and we’re not scared to try new things or change direction, so you’ll never be bored. We have about 80 brands to our name – some long-established market leaders, some just starting out in the world. Most of them aim to create value by bringing people together; buyers and sellers, recruiters and jobseekers, brokers and customers.
