LADbible Group is a world leading multi-media publisher for young people, sharing news, entertainment, original content and real-life stories to our global audiences. Our mission is pretty straightforward: we aim to give young people aged between 18-34 a voice by building communities that laugh, think and act, across our platforms
Our communities now have 140 million followers worldwide, across our nine brands and LADbible is the 7th most-visited website in the UK [Alexa UK Rankings]. We don’t think youth audiences are hard to reach, you just have to tell them the stories they care about and amplify the ones they tell you.
We are a growing company and we are on the search for new creatives to help us to continue to grow. We want to find talented, passionate people who reflect our diverse global audience to join our Video and Content Teams – with a variety of roles available at different levels across our LADbible, UNILAD, SPORTbible & Tyla brands in Manchester, London, Dublin & Sydney!
If you're interested in joining our team on this incredible journey, then we have set four different challenges, reflecting different areas of our business and roles available, to give you the chance to be a part of it! Check them out below & pick one the most relevant to you to apply to.
We encourage applications from candidates from any background and at any level of experience – we value ideas, passion and creativity.
Challenge One – LAD Tales
At LADbible Group, our mission is to give all young people a voice and share stories that are not usually heard. Our audience love hearing about people overcoming adversity, conspiracy theories, interesting facts and genuinely engrossing topics.
If you are passionate about storytelling and want to help us share stories to our 140 million followers, we would love to hear from you about a tale that has yet to be told.
Send us a video (3 minutes plus) about a story that you think others would want to hear about. You could present it in front of camera, from behind the scenes or using footage; whichever you think works best. Our only requirements are that it must be an original idea and something that you think would win the heart of the LADbible Group audiences. This video can be for any of our brands across LADbible Group including LADbible, LADbible Australia, LADbible Ireland, UNILAD, SPORTbible & Tyla.
At LADbible Group, we use Premiere Pro for video editing but are open to whatever tool you have available. Don’t worry about copyrights, the video won’t be shared externally so if you’d like to use existing content to help tell your story then that’s ok; we only insist that you reference its source.
HOW TO APPLY - Please submit your video in application to this role with the hashtag #LADTales. Our content teams will review all submissions and our Talent teams will keep you updated on whether your application is of interest to them.
Challenge Two – LAD Tweets
Our audience have a great sense of humour & Twitter is often the place for short & sharp comments that can make someone’s day that little bit better.

Challenge Three – LAD Growth
LADbible Group has had great success bringing communities together through our Facebook Groups – examples include Netflix Bangers, Isolation Nation & Try This. We have internal teams who manage these groups; creating content, organising activities and growing the communities.
In this challenge, we are looking for you to create the next big community group that our audiences will love. We want you to launch your very own Facebook Group with a specific target audience in mind.

Challenge Four – LAD Challenge

Through our mission to build communities that laugh, think and act we have created award-winning campaigns including UOKM8, Blood Without Bias and Trash Isles.
Using these campaigns as inspiration, we would like you to come up with a trending challenge that would get our audience to laugh, think & act about a topic that you think needs to be given a platform.
HOW TO APPLY - To get our attention please create your challenge and post it on either TikTok, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the Hashtag #LADbiblechallenge.
