  • Energetic: we meet people with warmth & positivity. We say 'yes, and not 'yes, but.'
  • Pioneering: we drive forwards, looking for new technology, new ideas & new sources of growth. We are driven to look for the next innovation, to meet our clients' challenges

  • This year we were shortlisted for Campaign's Media Agency of the Year in the UK. We have also won many awards including the World Media Awards for EA, the WARC Media Awards for Effectiveness for TalkTalk and an IPA Effectiveness Award for Tango. We have also been awarded the IPA CPD Gold accreditation in the UK for continuous professional development of our people for 3 years in a row. Showing our commitment to our culture of learning and our focus on the professional development of all m/SIXers, in order to become the most important place in their careers.

    Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion commitment:

    We are committed to being a diverse, equitable and inclusive agency with the aim to build and retain teams that represent the communities we operate in. Our Global employee-run DEI group, The Collective , are pioneers in delivering and maintaining accountability of these commitments.

    We were the first media agency in the UK to launch an internship programme - Ambitious About Autism, designed to actively champion neurodiversity and unlock the potential of young autistic adults. Now in its third year, our commitment continues, expanding our already successful internship programme and calling the industry to open their doors and minds to young autistic talent.

    Further to this commitment to pioneering diversity and equality in our business, we welcome people of all backgrounds into our agency. We want our people to bring with them diverse attitudes, opinions and beliefs into a culture where they are treated with respect, can be comfortable being their authentic self and feel like they belong. We are therefore keen to encourage applications from people from all walks of life and we want you to be at your best throughout the recruitment process. Please reach out to us to discuss any specific adjustments, or how we can help you throughout the recruitment process.
