Owned by Omnicom and previously known as Communispace, the firm helps clients build relationships with target customers through private online communities, immersive storytelling, activation events and innovation projects. Headquartered in Boston, London and Shanghai, with additional offices in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Amsterdam and Mexico City, it has recently launched a new internship programme and will add an Apprenticeship Scheme later in the year.

We're growing year on year and Zoe will play a big part in ensuring we're constantly innovating to make C Space a truly fantastic place to work. She will take a lead on learning and development, talent strategy and work closely with the senior leadership team to ensure we expand and live our core values'.
