Our Culture – Defined By Our Team
We’re creative (standard). We’re honest and open. A swear jar would bankrupt us all. We’re all equal and we laugh at ourselves… and each other.
We’re unconventional, productive and we do whatever it takes to get the job done. We like burgers
(meat, veggie and vegan).
We always make time for each other and our clients. We live and breathe audio. We’re people pleasers. We’re all very different and we love that about our team.
We praise each other and recognize achievements. We like going to the pub. We don’t quit, we fix.
We’re kind and caring. We make a difference. We stick together and pick each other up when it’s needed.
We like to dance. We say please and thank you. We’re passionate and motivated. We always leave our clients feeling good.
The Person We Are Looking For
You’re ambitious, brilliant and committed.
You’ll have worked in a similar role at a creative, digital or media agency, or for a media owner. You’ll have a strong belief in delivering great customer service and being a champion of your clients internally. You’re a people person so you’ll be comfortable and confident speaking to clients at all levels and be able to present yourself as a trusted resource that they can rely on.
You’ll be looking to use the experience and take the skills you’ve developed into a role that is going to have a big impact in the growth and development of our company.
You’ll have led and managed teams with great success. With your knowledge of audio and digital advertising, you’ll be able to manage your own relationships and projects whilst also offering direction and support to the team around you. You will be involved in the growth of the agency by developing existing relationships and supporting the new business drive.
You’ll have a strong belief in delivering great customer service and being a champion of your clients internally. You’re a people person so you’ll be comfortable and confident developing relationships with our key clients at all levels, and be able to present yourself as a trusted resource that they can rely on.
You’ll be comfortable working across time zones with a team that is based on the East Coast and in
London, and meeting our clients in their offices frequently, and you buzz off being part of a busy department that always delivers. You’ll be a real team player and love being part of a company that is striving for greatness on every level, not just in the work we deliver. Because the success of the company that you’re part of is really important to you.

You’re great at what you do, but that doesn’t mean you’ve stopped trying to develop yourself personally and professionally. You’ll be keen to challenge yourself to constantly be better, even if it’s just a little everyday.
If this is you, we can’t wait to hear from you.
Salary & Benefits
We aim for the whole team (currently 6 people) to meet up every 3 quarters as a minimum in New

There is also the potential for London trips depending on how you progress in the business.
The Hiring Process
It’s really important that we are a right fit for each other. Therefore we usually have three chats online, on the phone or in person. This is so we can get to know each other properly which is really important for you and us, as we want you to be with us for a long time so you need to know it’s right for you too.
