About the Agency

 

Founded in 2005, Rostrum grew 21% last financial year, revenue exceeded £4 million and it is now a team of 40.

They are known for delivering creative campaign platforms that drive brand fame for their clients such as ‘The Bank of Mum & Dad’ for Legal & General and ‘The Nations Nest Egg’ for Yorkshire Building society.

Their clients include major financial institutions, global law firms, management consultancies and more.

Training and development is at the heart of Rostrum’s culture. You can see this from the incredible internal career progression of the Rostrum gang. Whether it be Sophie Mellish who joined as an Account Executive and progressed to Head of Corporate & Social Media in just 6 years, or even Nick Seymour who also joined as an Account Executive and now specialises as an Editorial Director.

They keep the team inspired with a constant flow of amazing speakers coming in to meet the team. From the likes of Muay Thai boxer Shane O’Neill talking about maintaining a positive attitude in the face of adversity, to Jodi-Ann Harry of HSBC hosting 1-1 chats with the team about their financial goals, you’ll expand both your mindset and skillset at Rostrum.

Some of their benefits include:

  • Unlimited holidays after 3 years of employment
  • A subscription to the lifestyle and wellbeing platform Heka (giving you access to free dinners, yoga, shows and more)
  • A fully flexible work policy
