Ok, ok, so we know what you’re thinking; we’re a PR agency, not an ad agency — but hear us out.

Ad agencies often come up with great PR ideas, so we figured two can play that game. That’s why we’ve invested heavily into our creative capability over the last couple of years, building a full-service design studio and setting up a number
of creative teams in London and Hong Kong.

We’ve also recently won a global advertising account with one of the world’s biggest tech and social media brands, so we’re off to a fantastic start. Now we’re on the hunt for exceptional creative talent to help us deliver for this client. But that’s not all. We want ambitious, talented creatives who want to be part of building something special here at Grayling and produce some world-beating work while they’re at it.
