Cognito is an integrated communications consultancy for the financial and technology sectors. With offices in London, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore and Hong Kong, we help firms improve their performance and manage their reputation.
From planning to execution, Cognito focuses on providing clients with integrated programmes, creative expertise, market intelligence, and insightful reporting. We support businesses in achieving their communications objectives through media relations, marketing, branding, advertising, design, digital and social media. Whatever their needs, our clients trust us as an effective partner because of our specialisation and recognition that finance is different.
Our clients range from some of the largest financial institutions in the world to promising start-ups looking to change the landscape of the industry. The Cognito team is equally diverse. Our employees hail from all over the world and boast a variety of experience under their belts. Expertise, collaborative spirit and an innate sense of curiosity are the constants for all Cognitians.
You don’t need to have an economics degree to work at Cognito
Our people have a array of academic backgrounds, from art history and modern languages to politics and law. As an integrated agency, it’s vital for our staff to have varied expertise and approaches, from those who think analytically and have exceptional attention to detail to those with a strong creative streak.
An interest in finance is important
Finance shapes the world we live in today. You don’t need to spend lunch breaks reading the FT or Wall Street Journal cover to cover, but a passion for financial markets and a curiosity about what influences them is a quality we look for in our people.
We are a fun, growing company and the pace of life here is fast
Agency life is filled with a variety of clients and projects, so multi-tasking is key! But we also think it’s important to foster many different interests and skills. In addition to professional training, we regularly attend conferences and industry talks, host a book club, plan team drinks, and even run French lessons in our office.
If you want to be thrown in at the deep-end, learn communications inside and out, and develop a sound understanding of agency life and the financial markets, then Cognito will be a great fit for you.
