ABOUT CROWD NETWORK
We are an ambitious podcast network based in Manchester that specialises in unforgettable stories and personalities. Using the best presenters, producers and writers, we create conversations you have to share.
Podcasts become communities when listeners feel they belong. We make ground-breaking audio that makes people feel part of something bigger than themselves.
We created The Joe Marler Show, The Sam and Billie Show, Go Love Yourself and The Geraint Thomas Cycling Club. We’ve had over 13 million downloads so far and we’re growing rapidly.
We’re now looking for a social media manager to take our existing sports shows to the next level, and to work on our next set of sports launches.
At Crowd, we are welcoming, inclusive and collaborative. Therefore we are particularly keen to hear from applicants that are underrepresented in the podcast and media industry, such as those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds or those with disabilities.
