As a communications and culture consultancy that is built around purpose, values and sustainability, every single project that our client delivers makes the world a little bit happier and healthier - it's why they come to work. They help companies find their purpose beyond profit and set of values, embed these in their strategy, culture and operations, then communicate transparently to the outside world.
A small company with big impact, their client is known for moving the needle on huge issues,through powerful, creative interventions. Their clients include leading tech and FMCG giants TripAdvisor, Danone, Grant Thornton and O2, global wildlife charity WWF and leading UK charities Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Crisis, and #ReuseRevolution pioneers (and fellow B Corp) KeepCup. They fight for what they believe in, and were heavily involved in campaigning to remain in the EU - including the globally viral We Are Europe ‘Kiss of Death’ Mural, which has won numerous awards including The Drum, Marketing Can Change the World Award.
They are an extremely fast paced company. They get stuff done. If you don’t like pressure, pace, ownership and the thrill of making exciting things happen on a daily basis, they’re not for you. At the same time, one of their values is Stay Playful - and although they’re busy, they put a big emphasis on fun and general wellbeing. From their team wellbeing coach to their Wednesday Break initiative, where they close the office every Wednesday afternoon to give people’s brains a rest - they really are trying to find a new way of working. This approach has attracted some of the best industry talent out there (they're very proud of our team).
They are deeply, fire-in-belly passionate about creating positive social and environmental change - and at the same time they are unapologetically commercial. They believe that doing well should be synonymous with doing good.
