Team nights out, team nights in, weekends abroad (we try to go away 2-3 times every year) and so on. You will be in charge of the agency experience both for clients and our teams from the second they enter the building to the moment they leave.

Opinions - everyone’s ideas are valuable in our team, so don’t be afraid to have a point of view and to express it.
A willingness to learn and a can-do attitude.
Positive energy!
