  • About GALLOS

    GALLOS invests in and co-builds early-stage (pre-Seed through to Series B) security technology companies (see for further detail).

    GALLOS has assembled a world-class team with decades of nation state level security experience as well as deep investment and commercialisation know-how. The GALLOS team supports the companies it invests in by bringing unique security, science, technology, and commercial optimisation expertise, underpinned by highly connected, patient capital at scale. 

    In parallel with growing the Ventures and Build parts of GALLOS, we are also building a GALLOS Services business. GALLOS Services aspires to become a trusted advisor - providing clients with unique perspectives on the security technology landscape and supporting a global network of security technology leaders. 

    To formulate and deliver the strategic and marketing communications plan for GALLOS Technologies we are recruiting an experienced Head of Marketing and Strategic Communications (HMSC).  This is likely a 3-4 days per week consulting role for an initial 6-month period with the opportunity for the right candidate to then transition into a permanent role. 

    The Role – Head of Marketing & Strategic Communications (HMSC)

    As HMSC at GALLOS Technologies, you will work closely with the TopCo, Build and Services teams to define and execute plans for all external-facing communications and marketing activities.  As the first marketing leader at GALLOS, this role requires a mix of experience and sound judgement, combined with a willingness to “get into the detail” of execution, working closely with colleagues across each of the business areas, plus the GALLOS Advisory Board and the external Strategic Communications Agency.


    The key responsibilities of the role include the following:

    1. Communications Planning: Lead the formulation and delivery of overarching strategic and marketing communications plans for TopCo, Build and Services areas, working with their leadership teams and leveraging the external Strategic Communications Agency.
    2. Content Delivery: Deliver a content calendar (via appropriate channels) to support agreed communications objectives with key audiences.  Including working closely with the GALLOS Advisory Board to produce world-class thought leadership, delivered via podcasts, live streams, media, and online channels.
    3. Media / PR / Investor Relations:  Execute targeted comms and media/PR engagement to support GALLOS strategic objectives for key stakeholder audiences. You’ll work closely with GALLOS Founders and manage an external Agency.
    4. Events: Plan and deliver monthly (and ad hoc) calendar of strategic GALLOS events and speaking opportunities in line with the agreed plans for each area, leveraging the GALLOS team and Advisory Board as speakers. Engage fractional support to deliver Events as required. 
    5. Website / Digital Platform Management & SEO: Ensure an on-brand digital presence via website(s) and drive relevant traffic to site(s) in line with agreed plans.
    6. Social Media and Community Engagement: Deliver engaging social media presence and activity, actively building core audiences in line with agreed plans. 
    7. CRM: If required, recommend and establish an appropriate CRM tool for community building.


    We would love to hear from a range of candidates, so please do apply even if you don’t feel you have experience in ALL of these areas.
