If strategy is your middle name, you live and breathe adventure, and building a full-service creative agency is the challenge you’ve been looking for, we have the opportunity for you.


You’ll join an award-winning remote team who reach millions of Australians every month across the website, social media channels, and mailing list. The goal? Work with our founder to build a full-service creative agency for the outdoor, travel, and action-sports industry.

We’re chasing someone who’s a visionary thinker, is passionate about brand partnerships, and has a bit of experience under their belt. Recognise yourself? Read on!

About You

We’re looking for a strategic mastermind and commercially-focused leader to work with our Founder to develop the business plan and build Explorer Studios 2.0. 

The role will suit someone who has headed up strategy in an agency and is looking to step up to a lead role within a purpose-driven company to build something truly unique. You will have ownership of the agency and will directly benefit from your success. 

This part is non-negotiable – we want someone with a depth of knowledge and passion in the outdoor, travel, or action sports industry.

Your Skills

  • 5+ years senior strategy experience (ideally at a creative/PR agency) 
  • A visionary mindset who understands and can realise our growth potential 
  • Highly organised and operationally-focused with strong financial acumen and understanding of P&L management
  • Experience leading high performing teams including recruitment and performance management
  • Passionate about brand partnerships with a proven track record in successfully engaging new clients and maintaining successful long term partnerships 
  • Excellent communication, presentation and client management skills
  • A genuine love for nature, travel and great outdoors – a passion for what our brand stands for is absolutely essential
  • Out-of-the-box thinker with a wild imagination, approaching work with curiosity, empathy, and integrity

What You’ll Be Doing

In 2016 we launched Explorer Studios to cater to clients wanting to leverage our premium content creation capabilities. It’s been very successful, however as we’ve built the Explorer brand it’s become clear that the opportunity is far, far bigger.

We’re in a unique position as a publisher to leverage our depth of insight to offer clients a suite of supercharged and connected marketing solutions at the cutting edge of outdoor culture. 

Insights. Brand strategy. Creative. Production. Talent management. PR & Communications. Activations. The potential is big and we’re going to build a full-service creative agency for the outdoor, travel, and action-sports industry.

To do this though we need to find the right person to bring this agency-publisher model to life.

How do I apply?

To apply for the role, shoot an email to henry@weareexplorers.co with your CV and a short cover letter.

Please use Head of Explorer Studios in the subject line.

Why work for us?

  • 25 days annual leave
  • Annual Team Trip – we take the crew away for an adventure weekend
  • 1 paid Adventure day per year for you to go on a wild adventure somewhere
  • 1 paid Volunteer day per year to volunteer for a charity/cause that’s important to you
  • Join one of the most exciting indie media companies in Australia
  • Lots of random adventure/travel/gear perks seeing as we’re in the adventure sector!

We push boundaries in everything we do – community initiatives, festival winning films, podcasts, event series – we genuinely believe that nature and the outdoors has the power to transform people and the planet. If you’re a senior creative professional searching for meaningful, varied work that shifts the needle in the travel and conservation space then we’d love to hear from you.


Sydney (ideally).
