We’re looking for a spectacular SAE for a PR job in London.

  • Work on two major brands that are looking for fresh thinking & cut-through
  • Have a say in the business & be part of the management team
  • Work on strategic, integrated campaigns

Latte

Firstly, we completely understand the frustrations of not knowing which agency this role is for (nor the clients and brands you’d be working on). But please give us a quick call and we can reveal this to you with more insight.

First calls are always casual and commitment free. It’s just about giving you a clear understanding of the opportunity and for us to assess whether you’re the right fit for the role. We’ll provide you with upfront and honest detail to guide you in your next move.

About the agency

The Work
This agency is approached by brands for big campaigns to lift them out of their known sectors, shake things up and resonate with their consumers. Needless to say, creativity and strategy are always at the core of the agency’s ideas.

Every piece of work this agency does has a strategic platform underpinning it. Whilst they’ve worked with some amazing brands, they also have clients that people would typically think are ‘dull’. But what’s impressive about this situation, is the dull brands stick with our client because of the creative cut-through. We have some pretty awesome examples to chat through if you’re interested. 

Culture
If the MD is anything to go by we reckon you’re going to luuurve this agency. Her warm, charismatic energy bounces off the walls of the entire room. Total straight shooters, the founders are the perfect blend as they balance off each other, strengthening each other’s weaknesses to create a fab culture.  

It’s a unique culture because they look for people with a certain passion for the areas which no one else in the office has. People who are so good at one particular area of business that that’s what they get to focus on and drive forward. Different minds, original ideas, relentless curiosity and passion – this is what they like in a team.

The culture can also be described as work-hard play-hard, but they’re not a sweatshop by any means. In fact, they are quite the opposite. We’ll explore this in the benefits below.

Team
The team makeup includes a Head of Social, a Creative Director, a Producer and In-House Designers – of course this makes campaigns so much more solid. They operate a matrix structure with no silos. This means that the team you work with on one client might be completely different to the team you work with on another client. This allows for excessively brilliant and dynamic creativity. 

Awards
They are award-winning... Yeah we get it, lots of agencies say this. But these guys really are. And they win the good awards. Like a Silver Lions at Cannes. Or gold for SABRE’s. They've previously picked up PR Weeks Campaign of the Year and Consultancy of the Year too. Tempted yet?
