Competitive salary subject to experience
Blueprint works with Mobile, Technology and Automotive companies, creating experiences that engage, programmes that transform and content that excites.
We help large, innovative companies communicate with their resellers and their staff in multiple markets. We put together structured, digital programmes for training, incentives and staff communication, but also deliver amazing experiences. The communication we produce might be in any format: an app, email series, blog, roadshow, video, conference, webinar or live stream press release. It might be a big announcement, then followed up by personalised internal communications, with 'what this means for you' messages. They are always considered for the audience and adapted to the language, culture and commercial maturity of each market.
We can guarantee variety, challenge and creativity on the forefront of innovation.
