Work with Sensei

Current opportunities to work with Sensei

We prefer to work with freelancers or micro-business owners, rather than agencies. We’ve nothing against agencies, we simply prefer to support someone who’s keen to secure a new client to help with their business growth during this challenging period.

These are not employed opportunities. You should already be set up with your local tax authorities and have your own business insurance.

About Sensei

Sensei is a communication consultancy based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. We develop learning, marketing and technical content for clients across the world.

What is it like to work with the Sensei team?

We want people who will become part of our team. You’ll be working directly with the Partners. And, you’ll also be talking to clients on our behalf.

  • As a freelancer, you work when you wish, though we’d prefer some flexibility on your part if an urgent, unexpected task arises.
  • We are keen to work with someone who is happy with a flexible and remote-first arrangement. If you’re based in NI, we are happy to meet occasionally in person once the current restrictions are removed. (This does not exclude those who’re not based in NI.)
