Our values

As Roy Disney (the older brother of Walt, and co-founder of Walt Disney) once said, “It’s not hard to make decisions once you know what your values are”. Our core values define how we choose to progress as a company and as individuals.

We are straight talkers

We are open and upfront with our clients and each other.

We commit

We do what we say we will, and are passionate about doing it.

We do the right thing

We act fairly and responsibly with each other, our clients, our partners, and the people that receive our advertising.

We never stand still

There is no blueprint for what we do, so we constantly seek out the new, to deliver for clients and our business.

We are better as a team

We do great work, but truly brilliant work happens when we bring together our diverse skills in technology, data and media.

Life here is more than work

We are more than just great programmers, marketers, and analysts. Our people are encouraged to seek out the ‘extra-curricular’ stuff too!

  • A lunchtime running club
  • An all-star football team
  • Regular yoga classes and rock climbing
  • Games, film and quiz nights

We know how important a positive work/life balance is. People are happiest when they are motivated, energised and engaged. This is why we offer up to 30 days of leave each year.

We like to think we’re a friendly bunch. Our Monday lunches and Friday drinks help to start and end our week right. Social occasions are regulars –  our quarterly all-staff meetings usually end with a drink or two nearby.

Health

Your wellbeing is important to us. We have a number of ways we do our bit to keep you fit, including: subsidised gym membership, Ride2Work cycle scheme, health cash plans, and regular fresh fruit throughout the day.

Flexible working

We get it. Work can sometimes get in the way of life. With ‘flexitime’ and the ability to work from home when needed, you will be able to work around the other stuff going on in your life.

Family & future

Our enhanced maternity and paternity packages allow peace of mind as you welcome your new baby into the world and our pension helps take care of your future finances.
