The Company

Red Apple Creative is a creative production agency specialising in multi-platform campaigns for radio, Spotify and digital platforms. 

We are part of the SNK Publishing Group which also includes SNK Studios and Radio Results.

Our audio creative production department is growing rapidly and we’re currently looking for an audio engineer to join us in our state of the art London studios.

We are a leader in audio creative production in the UK and have a strong roster of clients including Spotify, Tough Mudder and The FA.

Our work can be heard on radio stations and online audio platforms around the world and we’re proud to be a founder member of the IAB Audio Council and a patron of The Radio Academy.

We’ve seen significant growth as a company in the last few years and it’s an exciting time to join us. We firmly believe that the people in our company are our strongest asset and we’re proud to have a brilliant team who amaze us every day. We boast a high staff retention rate and have doubled in size in the last two years.

Our Culture

We're creative (standard). We're honest and open. A swear jar would bankrupt us all.

We're all equal and we laugh at ourselves...and each other. We're unconventional, productive and we do whatever it takes to get the job done. We like burgers. We always make time for each other and our clients. We live and breathe digital and audio. 

We're all very different and we love that about our team. We like going to the pub...a lot. We praise each other and recognise achievements. We don't quit, we fix. We're kind and caring. We make a difference. We stick together and pick each other up when it's needed. We're people pleasers. We like to dance. We say please and thank you. We're passionate and motivated. We always leave our clients feeling good.

The person we are looking for
