Graduate Account Executive Internship- Digital Agency- London- Paid
Based in the heart of Soho, this company was established in 2011 as the first ‘Mobile First” digital agency. They were ahead of the curve in encouraging brands to recognise a new reality in consumer
behaviour, the ever increasing time people were spending on mobile devices, combined with increasing diversity of things they were doing on mobile.
They work with big brands and start-ups to help them shape their use of technology from strategy through to development. They work with these brands and media agencies to create websites, apps, virtual reality, ads, interactive DOOH, and other tech solutions.
The company has grown quickly over the past 6 years to more than 50 people. In early 2014, they sold a share of their business to Omnicom, giving them the strength and backing of a major advertising and media network. But they stayed true to their roots with the culture and atmosphere of a start-up and all the energy and opportunity for talent that brings.
In true start up style, they regularly throw people in at the deep end, but with the right amount of backup and mentorship to help people succeed.
