Job description

Office Administrator

We are McCann Milton Keynes, an advertising agency and a key part of McCann Central, the UK’s largest integrated agency with over 500 individuals working together to help brands play a meaningful role in people’s lives.

We are also part of McCann Worldgroup, a global agency network that delivers culture-shaping work for some of the world’s biggest brands. At McCann, we’ve spent more than a century building successful brands using one simple philosophy: Truth Well Told. It’s our belief that consumer insights based on truth are crucial to building brands that last.

We are based just a few minutes’ walk from Wolverton train station in Milton Keynes, and work with many great clients. Our office is where ideas flourish. We have a physical space that is open and inspiring. We have a culture that is supportive and unafraid. We’re a team of passionate creatives, strategists and marketers from a wide mix of backgrounds that care deeply about everything we make. And though our skillsets are wide and our process knowledge is deep, we are all still learning every day.

You’re someone who can develop good working relationships with clients, guests and staff, getting to know people, what accounts they work on, who they regularly work with and how often they are in.

Ideally, you’ll have a passion for creativity and be eager to learn new skills and develop your career within an advertising agency environment. We look for our people to embody and promote our values and beliefs, so you’ll be proactive, highly organised and have a positive, can-do attitude. You’ll also be a team player and prepared to muck in when needed. Not to mention extremely approachable and willing to go the extra mile to help.

The role of an Office Administrator is to be an ambassador for the McCann values and beliefs.

You’ll provide a professional front-of-house ‘meet and greet’ service for all our clients and visitors. We want our guests to feel special, warmly welcomed and well looked after every time they enter our building. The role includes helping with reception duties, booking and preparing meeting rooms, providing admin support, as well as other general duties.

General admin duties

For us, diversity is a business imperative – one that must be embedded into every aspect of how we operate in order to drive success. Simply put, we believe an encouraging and inclusive environment makes sound business sense.

As a globally integrated community that influences and shapes culture, it’s vital that the talent mix in our agencies encompass all dimensions of diversity, and that we demand the same of the people we work with.

Conscious inclusion encompasses social, cultural and cognitive differences and cultivates an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. It is the integration of this philosophy that allows us to create meaningful experiences for our employees, drive better business practices with our vendors and clients, and ultimately lead with purpose.
