About the agency

Woodrow helps to lead the conversations shaping tomorrow’s world. Launched in 2018 with the belief that there was a better way to do comms, Woodrow brings together intelligent and ambitious people from a wide range of backgrounds to deliver some of the most ambitious and impactful work going.

In three years, the agency has grown rapidly. There are now 25 people in a team spanning three countries and speaking 10 different languages. The client list has expanded to include international organisations, Europe’s fastest-growing consumer brands, international trade bodies, progressive tech companies, and people and groups campaigning for human rights.

Woodrow’s work covers companies at the forefront of how the world trades and connects, businesses changing the way we live, fast growth entrepreneurial brands looking to change the world, and major players from NGOs to governments driving work that matters.

 

Culture

Everyone working in the business is also working on the business. Woodrow knows that a healthy, happy, diverse group of people come up with better ideas, work more effectively, and have a greater sense of togetherness. For this reason, it’s an agency that invests heavily in personal and professional development and overall well-being. In return, you are trusted to own your role and take responsibility for the clients you work with.

What we find to be unique about Woodrow is that everyone is given the chance to become the very best version of themselves. Regardless of seniority or experience, all Woodrow team members are trusted to give advice to clients and have key conversations with them, as well as to take full ownership of their role.

They’re also confident, curious and entrepreneurially minded. Woodrow’s aim is to build something exceptional, not to do what’s been done before. Everyone in the team takes on responsibility from the first day and has the chance to make an immediate impact.

This is not a company of big egos. Their focus is their work. They shout about their clients and the issues that matter.

This is agency that will nurture you and you will progress quickly. They’re looking for someone with drive, but also someone who will be mindful of the bigger picture when working on campaigns, making sure there’s a long-term positive impact.

Annual summer getaways allow the team to bond and give everyone the chance to unwind after all their hard work.
