Psst….we’re on the hunt for freelancers! 

The Alive dynasty is growing and we’re on the lookout for some creative freelance talent to strengthen our tribe!

It’s a jungle out there and while we can’t promise you exotic beaches, rolling savannahs or even the soothing tones of David Attenborough, what we do offer is a chance to work with a wildly creative team that has passion in its DNA.

What we’re seeking…

The Lesser Spotted Freelancer – most commonly found sat behind a computer screen, with its recognisable call being the gentle ‘click click click’ of the keyboard touchpad, as the latest masterpiece is being created.

Never happier than when they are bringing a client’s ideas to life, they thrive on being part of a courageous team and tingle at the thought of a job well done.

From designers and animators, to developers, photographers and copywriters, if you want to work with an agency that’s a rare breed, then we want to hear from you.

About the Alive tribe

At Alive, we’re proud to do things differently.

We have an established team of creatives, who are masters at delivering creative comms and exceptional employee engagement campaigns, with ideas that inspire and delight.

Our growing list of top-drawer clients includes the likes of eBay, Mercedes AMG Petronas, B&Q, NATS, PPL, Great Western Railway, KP Snacks, Cadent, DS Smith, Sainsbury’s and Avon.

Are you the missing link?

With a growing client book, we’re keen to bolster our freelance support across all areas.


We’ll be looking for you to produce excellent conceptual and typographical layouts for both print and digital projects. Experience in Adobe suite, PowerPoint and After Effects, is an advantage, as well as a strong understanding of the latest marketing trends.


From brochures, to web and marketing collateral, you’ll need to be able to digest a creative brief and translate it into stand-out imagery that packs a punch. Experience in the full range of commercial photography is preferable.


We’re after a highly creative ideas generator, with the skillset to see them through to delivery. You need to be able to get under the skin of our clients to interpret briefs and produce something with style and impact. Experience in using After Effects and Premiere would be required.


From clear, crisp prose that informs, to engaging and persuasive campaigns, our copy needs are broad and varied. Whether you specialise in certain genres of copywriting or can turn your hand to anything we might throw at you, we’re interested.

Offering something else? If you’re skilled in other creative ways that we might benefit from, then don’t be shy, we won’t bite. You could be just who we need for our next project.

The call of nature… (or so to speak)

If you think you’ve got something to offer, then it’s time we talked. Fire across your details, the kind of projects you’re looking to work on and some examples of your work, to

**Please understand only successful candidates will be contacted.**

“The guys at Alive understand the complexities of our business which means we don’t need to explain the detail of every project or design piece – they’re already on it, which keeps things moving and delivers the results we need.”

“I feel like they own and care for the project as much as we do! I would not use anyone else for my creative work and think Alive is ahead of the game.”

Jo Hobbs — Communications Manager

“Thanks for all your help. We are delighted with the campaign, both in terms of the creativity and messaging but also the thought taken over the rollout of the materials. All looks absolutely fabulous!”

Sarah Crowdy — Campaign and Media Officer Communications, South East Water

“We went to ‘Alive’ for ideas on how to run a specific employee program in Europe. Alan and his team were brilliant in coming up with fresh, creative and practical approaches. The team took charge and executed brilliantly. We are pleased with the progress made so far and hope to have the same level of partnership and commitment going forward.”

Sobha — Tata Consultancy Services

“So glad that we chose Alive to create our new website. As well as taking the time to get the visual side of our requirement right, they worked with us to understand us, our business and our clients and reflect this across the site. We loved their flexible approach, which, coupled with the right level of challenge has replaced our old, clunky site with one we can be proud of. ”

Victoria Ford — Perago

“Alive were there to help when we were working every hour to respond to the coronavirus outbreak. They gave us the creativity, ideas and support we needed to deliver campaigns which empowered our residents in the most difficult time most of us have ever seen, personally and professionally. The team understood what we needed, worked closely with us and delivered fast without any compromise on quality. Working with Alive has been a joy in the darkest of times and I have no doubt will have helped to save lives. Thanks team x”

Julie Odams, Assistant Director of Communications & Customers — Derbyshire County Council

“We got 'Alive' involved to help us shift mindsets across our organisation and they delivered! Using simple, clear and creative ideas the team have delivered us a campaign which has seen a dramatic increase in idea sharing and development. They’ve also played a significant role in creating a culture of shared success. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with again, in fact, we already are!”
