Do you want to join an eclectic team comprised of a famous Tiktocker, a comedian (Ally Woods) similar to Mo Giganen, Black Eyed Peas impersonator and guitar players? This firm has 45 members of staff who specialise in communications for martech, adtech, advertising agencies and more recently retail technology. Using a combination of Earned PR, Owned Content, Business Development and Planned Events they help clients grow their business by reaching and engaging with key decision-makers. Teams are non-competitive and celebrate each other’s successes and there’s a flat structure offering people scope to take on a lot of responsibility. You only need to be in the office 8 times a month. They offer great benefits but let’s chat about those over the phone.
