Pogo is on the hunt for a new addition to our team.  We’re looking for someone with skills in digital marketing, account management and administration, to grow existing accounts and develop the Pogo Studio and Pogo Digital Healthcare on-line presence.

If you have a passion for writing, a growth mindset and a strong interest in digital and healthcare, we’d love to hear from you. 

Pogo Studio is an award-winning digital agency based in the centre of Edinburgh, headed up by Jack Francis, Scotland and Ireland’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2021.  

Pogo Digital Healthcare, the product division of Pogo, aims to transform communication within the healthcare sector.
