Here in London we have huge ambitions. We’ve doubled in size over the last year and broadened both our client list and the kind of work we’re doing for them. Our roots are in social and we love it - it’s where we get to understand different audiences, to experiment, to gain insight and to see how people really engage and respond to ideas.
We are creative and media in equal measure because both are equally important in developing effective communications. Having the ability to see how our work performs and learning from that is what really sparks us. We like to create a lot of our work in-house (with our own production, edit and motion teams) because execution is key to effectiveness. We believe 100% that brands can be built on digital platforms and part of our model is built bottom up, flipping the traditional advertising model and process on its head. We don’t play to agency/industry norms and our culture and energy reflects that.
We have an incredible client list across the here in UK and EMEA, including TikTok, Kraft Heinz, NatWest Group, WeWork, Durex, UNICEF, Indeed and Natura &Co. Our ideas begin to live and breathe in organic and paid social but grow beyond into NPD, TVCs, radio, press, OOH (you name it we’re there).
Our difference? We learn fast - from what we see and how our audiences really act, alongside cultural cues to create integrated campaigns that really connnect.
Infused with the DNA of our founder, we pride ourselves on our entrepreneurial spirit. Being an independent agency affords us the freedom to be bold and stray from convention. It also allows us to move quickly, which as we all know is key to succeeding today.
But ultimately, we are people people. We don’t do egos. We are skills first rather than where you studied and who you know. We’re here to change advertising, not conform to outdated old school rules, so we thrive on freethinkers with big ambitions. Sound like you?
Looking to make the move and step up into a senior role or already acing it and getting itchy feet for more ideas that see the light of day? Then this could be for you.
We're looking for a senior creative team to add to the creative firepower of our creative department, working across any of our clients. You'll be the go-to creatives, known for nailing briefs big or small and your book will be bursting with ideas that show it. Great with more junior members of the team and clients alike - always pushing for the best work possible. From slick idea decks to initial design - you’re unafraid to roll your sleeves up, you know how to turn pitch-winning concepts into actual campaigns and love every step of the way. Concepting and creating great ideas that hit the client briefs and make us all proud. Adept at presenting, you can work alongside your CD and client partnership teams to build and grow clients. You're used to creating the best ideas possible under pressure and making things happen - always with grace and good humour. You love the thought of challenging the advertising industry, embracing change and be a keen adopter of new strategies and techniques
You really must be able to have:
Ideas, ideas, ideas – your folio will be chokked full of recent work that has made it into the world and made a difference for the brand, for the audience, for the awards shelf...
The hunger and ability to create spot-on ideas from concept to completion - own and love the ideas you create
Able to spot the seed of an idea and understand how to nurture and enable it to grow into an impactful, change making campaign
A talent for working across multiple projects and switching easily when needed.
A strong hands-on knowledge of the big social media platforms and their specific
abilities/limitations. You play on the platforms and understand their differences.
You play well with others and love how ideas can grow, embracing the skills other creatives bring
to the final result
How we will support you:
We know talent is our most important asset and our people guide our work and our culture. The last year has challenged us like nothing before, and we are committed to providing the support and flexibility needed for people to do their best work and have fun doing it. We are an open minded bunch and we value diversity of thought and experience. Every person we hire will make us a more creative, innovative and happier agency. You are always welcome to bring an idea or opinion to our work and our ways of working.
For now, these are some of things we have in place to support you..
We regularly review our benefits and are committed to providing a comprehensive programme for our people. This currently includes all the good stuff you would expect from Health Cash Plan, Life Assurance, 27 days holiday through to Group Personal Pension and Income Protection.
We know some days aren't as good as others and that's OK. We have our mental health partner Sanctus on hand for employee coaching sessions and an Employee Assistance Programme in place should you need it. We also work with NABS, an industry specific support organisation who are passionate about helping people to thrive.
Sometimes it can be the smaller things that make you smile. We have a wide variety of discounts and benefits through Perkbox and you can also save money on a bike through our generous Cycle to Work Scheme. If R&R is more your thing you can take some time out for a monthly massage, join one of our bi-weekly mindfulness sessions or our weekly yoga sessions and much more. We understand that there has never been a more important time for self-care and as such we have a varied wellbeing programme to help you to be your best self.
