About Raconteur

Raconteur is a premium publishing house with special report, digital, research and custom publishing divisions.

We are committed to excellence across all our products and services by combining first-class journalism, data analysis, editorial imagery and striking graphic design.

We specialise in producing content for business decision-makers across print, web and video. We are most famous for our special reports in The Times and The Sunday Times, but we also produce bespoke thought leadership and research for some of the world’s biggest brands, such as KPMG, Schroders and Google.

Our Values

We strive for excellence, we’re committed to being open, we pride ourselves in being inquisitive, we work to create a vibrant workplace, and are always bold in our approach.

Our Culture

We’re young, we’re hungry, we work hard and we have fun. Raconteur was founded in 2008 and is now based in a loft-style office, not far from Shoreditch. Even though the company has seen rapid growth, we still have a tight-knit, supportive and entrepreneurial culture where we thrive on working together to create best-in-class products (which we tend to celebrate with a beer or two on a Friday).  Visit us on Instagram to see more about our people and products: @raconteur_london.
