About the agency

If you’ve been looking to work at an agency that is at the cutting edge of what they do, then this team should be on your list.

They’ve grown to a crew of 18 in a short three years and have held steady during the COVID shutdown.

Clients are coming in by the bucket loads – both major brands and challengers alike. It’s their unmatchable data and insight capabilities that are drawing them in. They’ve spent considerable time gaining insight into social media behaviour, creating data profiles and testing what social strategies actually work. They’re also building out their creative credentials.

This agency is so good that major brands who are retained with other social media & digital agencies still come to them to provide the strategy. Their creative credentials are on the up too. Some campaign highlights include:

  • Driving the social strategy & creative for a wine brand. Their work made them the UK’s 7th fastest growing grocery brand.
  • Used data models and in-depth insight coupled with superb creative to help a consumer tech brand achieve an ROI of 15:1 in sales.

 

Culture
Data scientists, strategists, creatives, account handlers, Oxford graduates and people without degrees. This place is a mixture of career backgrounds and personalities.

One thing they have in common is that they all want to be challenged, never settle with the status quo and have a love of insights. Even the account handlers love what the data shows. It informs decisions, creates more effective relationships with the brands they work for and most importantly allows them to be a cut above the rest.

Friday team lunches are provided, beer is on tap from 4 pm every day, you have access to meditation and games rooms, monthly socials and two team days away each year. (This will be available again once COVID is over).
