Our global community engages with our content–spanning editorial, video, documentary and live – billions of times each and every month. Using all major platforms, we’ve rapidly risen to become one of the web’s most prominent social video publishers.

Our brands include LADbible, SPORTbible, Pretty 52, branded content agency Joyride, and licensing arm CONTENTbible. Whether by simply putting a smile on someone’s face with a funny video or by engaging our audience in social issues important to them, we strive to make a positive difference.

Mission

LADbible Group has become a way of life for fans around the world. We provide news, entertainment and community to a global audience of young people. Our mission is pretty straightforward: to deliver content that our audience love. Our flagship brand alone is followed by half of all UK men aged 18-24 – and a fifth of women in the same age group.

We don’t think youth audiences are hard to reach, you just have to tell them the stories they care about and amplify the ones they tell you.

 

 

LADbible Group is an equal opportunities employer. We are determined to create a diverse group at all levels of our company and we welcome all members of the community to apply for openings with us.
