About Us

Latte is a PR & Comms recruitment agency that places proper PR talent into London’s most creative and strategic PR jobs.

We make sure the human stays in human resourcing by sticking it to the hard sell and allowing PR people to make decisions based on cracking insight and totally relevant information.

Candidates get open advice tailored to support career moves and we get to go on their individual journeys with them.

Our relationships with clients are second-to-none because there are mutual trust and partnerships. We’ll never send CVs without the certainty of potential fit and we’re picky about which agencies, brands and tech start-ups we recruit for so that we attract solid PR candidates to place in them.

We don’t do business development (we have so much business we are having to turn clients away) and we don’t have KPI’s. At Latte you get to focus on delivering proper recruitment and career consultation. You’ll immerse yourself in the PR industry, building your knowledge of the sector to provide better advice to your clients.

 

Culture

We’ve created an environment that rewards hard work and effort. We also know that hard work requires balance which is why we have completely flexible working. When you need a breather from the office, you can work from home, the cafe or a beach in Spain. Everything we do is in the cloud, making it easy to work from anywhere.

When you are in need of some rest and relaxation, you can make the most of our unlimited holiday offering.

We’ve got fab WeWork offices in Shoreditch giving you access to free breakfast every Monday, free beer and cider on tap, ping pong tables and a bunch of fab events from innovation talks to Halloween parties.

 

Benefits

  • 20 days’ holiday + Christmas shutdown + when you are on target access to our unlimited holiday offering
  • Flexible working
  • 10% commission on everything you bill – uncapped earning potential
  • Discretionary bonuses
  • Regular team socials from dinners at Nobu to cocktails at Sushi Samba.
