About us

Love & Work are our cornerstones. We believe they should be entwined with one another. To achieve this blend, we not only choose to work with clients who want to do things differently, but we build teams that are passionate about working on initiatives that they truly believe in.

Our employees are given the opportunity to develop industry firsts whether that be in the form of a documentary, an activation or the launch of a new concept or partnership. Our alumni have gone on to run their own top 150 agencies and to lead the communications and marketing for well-known global brands. Securing a role with us is a smart and strategic career move.

We look for problem solvers, for creative minds and for individuals who want to change society, influence culture, challenge conformity and push boundaries.

We know that without our employees, we wouldn’t be able to achieve what we do. As our many awards and certifications confirm, we are committed to offering an inclusive environment where individuals from all backgrounds are rewarded on merit, have the opportunity to experience integrated communications in its truest form and work on opportunities that due to our connectivity are unique to us. Our culture ensures a sense of belonging for all and we thrive off our ability to support and utilise a diverse range of thoughts and perspectives.

We would like to hire two students to join us this this summer and invite you to apply for a 4-week internship that will give you a great understanding of what we do and how we do it and will also give you a great introduction to a career in Communications.
