Our response to COVID

Zealous has a presence in London, Cairo, and Spain. COVID has led Zealous to becoming a “remote first” company committed to working from home for all our employees. We have invested into making sure that everyone is equipped to manage this time. We are actively reassessing our needs at this time and will always prioritise the health and well-being of our employees in any future decision. Zealous will continue to be a remote first company beyond the pandemic, and we hope to give employees optional access to in-person collaboration space in Cairo and London at the right time.


If you have an interest in the creative industries and work well in a fast-paced environment where the product is constantly being updated, we would love to hear from you.

Send us your CV, links to any copy you may have written / notable social media content you may have created and a brief message telling us why you feel this role is right for you. Please entitle your email “Marketing Coordinator and send it to [email protected].

Closing date: Sunday 1st February 2022 at 23.59pm
