With millions of subscribers on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter, Brat has become a household name for the next generation of viewers.

As the Head of Development you will not only oversee creative for individual shows, but superintend creative programming across the company. You will also work closely with our internal production team, writing and editing scripts that can be shot efficiently.
