VACANCY - POSTED 16th Nov '21

Job Title – Digital Content Manager at AKT


AKT is a London-based, premium skincare label that creates intelligent deodorant formulations. A true disruptor in the deodorant market with a strong ethical standpoint.   Our vision is to become the number 1 premium, natural, 100% plastic free bodycare brand for all genders.

The story began in the West End in 2015. Co-founders Ed Currie and Andy Coxon were performing eight shows a week under hot lights in a West End musical. In these tough conditions, mainstream deodorants simply weren’t making the cut. So, they decided to make their own. The pair spent three years researching and iterating with long hours experimenting on the hob in their tiny Camden kitchen.                                                                                                       

AKT launched in May 2020 as the only 100% plastic free, premium natural deodorant on the market. The Deodorant Balm has since gathered rave reviews from thousands of customers and been named Harper’s Bazaar’s best deodorant 2020, and number one natural deodorant by Vogue, PopSugar, Esquire and GQ.
