We are Crestview Strategy, a public affairs agency.  Based out of our offices across Canada, in the United States and the United Kingdom, we are an international firm serving clients all over the world.

We work with some of the largest companies in the world on a variety of interesting and complicated public affairs challenges. We are looking for a creative strategist who can help clients tell their story across multimedia channels. You are a visual specialist with an eye for bringing stories to life on devices with an exceptional eye for multimedia design, and a portfolio of channel-specific content that showcases your ability to convert complex messaging into striking visuals across Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and emerging platforms.

You live and breathe design and are always willing to try new things. You love it when each day presents a different challenge.

You may have to spend the morning in Photoshop, designing a stunning piece of art to make one of our campaigns stand out in the mobile feed. You may then need to toggle to Adobe Premiere to produce a 15-second video that recruits people to join one of our citizen-powered movements.

You love taking a standard social content calendar and making it a powerful storytelling device.

You will be working with a team of campaign strategists who will partner with you to make their campaigns exceptional. They need a teammate who is self-motivated, proactive, quick-thinking, flexible, thorough, and can juggle multiple and diverse responsibilities. You will need an unwavering attention to detail at all times.

You will be joining a growth-minded agency. If you have a growth mindset and want to learn every day, we’re the right place. If you are entrepreneurial and are motivated to help us grow as a business, we’re the right place. If you want to work with an exceptionally motivated, hard-working, and smart team that tackles tough problems every day, we’re the right fit.
