Job description

The Company

The Plum Guide is on a mission to build the definitive collection of the world’s best homes. Through expert human curation and innovative tech, we’re taking a scientific and systematic approach to vetting every home in every city we open, and accepting only the top 1%. Like a modern Michelin Guide - but for homes.

We launched 3 years ago in London. Since then, we have grown 15-20% month on month; expanded to 6 cities; tested over 100,000 homes; developed a customer experience that’s returning the highest NPS scores in the hospitality sector; and are on track to reach over £25M in annualised sales.

We are backed by some of the world’s top VCs and angel investors who have built many of the world’s most exciting companies of today. These include TransferWise, Citymapper, BuzzFeed, Appear Here, Graze, Depop, SoFarSounds,GymBox, Zoopla, LoveFilm, Secret Escapes to name a few.

We’ve recently closed a £14m Series B round of funding. Our focus for the next 12 months is on building an exceptional brand & customer experience; and maintaining hyper growth through an accelerated global rollout. 

This is where you come in...

The Role

We’re building out the marketing team here at The Plum Guide, and one of our aims is to recruit passionate content creators to sit within a studio team. You’ll already have had a few years experience working in a similar role, creating highly shareable videos for social media channels (specifically Facebook, Instagram, Instagram Stories). We’re looking for someone with experience on shoots, who’s confident commissioning videographers from other cities - and just as happy editing UGC in our London office. 

In-house video production is a new venture for us, so we’re looking for a strong allrounder to hit the ground running - you’ll be equally comfortable shooting, producing and editing. Video has huge potential to become a pivotal part of the machine that powers viral organic growth for Plum, and this role will help set the vision.


  • Consistently produce engaging videos, optimised for social media channels

  • Work with freelance filmmakers to commission quality video that engages our audience

  • Brief and coordinate video shoots around the world, working to tight budgets and timelines

  • Lead on London-based video shoots

  • Manage multiple creative projects throughout all stages of development, from ideation to post-production

  • Leverage social media to discover great videographers and UGC content

  • Help build our brand awareness

  • Work collaboratively with wider content team to grow and innovate marketing channels


Who we are looking for

You don’t need to have prior experience in hospitality or tech start ups. The important thing is that you are:

  • A skilled creative, motivated by high quality output and data informed

  • Experience telling stories through engaging social videos

  • Proven track record successfully growing social accounts and user engagement with video

  • Ability to work at speed, without letting standards slip

  • Full proficiency in Adobe Premiere

  • Dynamic and hard-working, able to juggle multiple projects

  • Active social media user with an inquisitive mind for new features, platforms, trends

  • Passion for Plum and the intersection of verticals the brand embodies

  • Degree in film production (or equivalent) and three years experience  in a similar role

  • Experience in a fast-paced working environment is a bonus

  • A team player and a positive, motivating person to be around


  • An unparalleled opportunity to become an expert in start-up scaling: not only will you lead digital marketing activities in a VC-backed business.  

  • If you make your objectives happen, you will inevitably be one of the most sought out talents in the scale-up tech space.

  • Genuine influence and ownership: you will work closely with the founders and leadership team in this role.

  • Competitive salary.

We welcome a range of backgrounds of experience so if in doubt, please apply!
