We are Square Up Media

We create stylish, engaging publications and web pages that appeal to a vast readership across London and beyond.

Our Culture - What we do

Founded in 2005 and based in Clapham Old Town, we are one of the most established and best known Media Houses in the UK. Our exposure to a range of influential and affluent audiences across London and beyond has helped to create our enviable client list: Maserati, Moss Bross, Steinway, Land Rover and many more.

Our influence ranges across four main brands, both in print and online: Square Mile, an events, business and style publication for the City of London; lifestyle magazine Hedge, dedicated to the Investment Management sector; Escapism, the UK's largest independent travel magazine and Foodism, the go-to for Londoners to discover the newest places to eat and drink.

These four brands are rooted in the the passions and interests of our team: we only produce media that we enjoy making, and that we think will engage and excite our audiences.

There are plenty more ideas and projects in the pipeline, waiting for the right graduates to make them a reality.

As well as our magazine distribution and our rapidly-growing online presence, we also run an events business, working with big names from Sky Sports to The Brit Awards. 

We have plans set in place this year to launch Foodism’s first ever Food and Drink Festival (for over 30,000 people) through this branch of the business, too.

  • Began with Square Up as an Account Manager in 2012

Our Future - Where we're going

Why Graduates Are Key to Our Future


Tim Slee, CEO and Founder

We are proud of our successes at Square Up Media, and rightly so: all four of our brands are market-leading in their field, with Foodism lauded as the largest publication of its kind in London and Escapism representing the UK's largest independent travel magazine.

We have exciting plans for the future which require new ideas and new talent to take the lead. That's where you come in.

Our previous graduates and interns have often gone on to be successful within the business: 75% of our team, including the Directorship, started with us in an entry-level position.

If you want to join an entrepreneurial, innovative and creative team and work with huge clients on brand new projects, this is the place for you.
