Who is The&Partnership?

We at The&Partnership bring ideas and technology together to power brands and businesses. As one of the world's fastest-growing independent agency networks, we are increasingly known for developing bespoke new model agency solutions for clients across the globe.

We call this &Model and the premise is very simple. Agency Creative, Strategy, Media, PR and CRM, all working side by side, solving problems as one collaborative team with the client.

A rapidly changing market requires a radical new approach to marketing. We work alongside our clients' marketing departments - often with other agency partners - in new, nimble ways to deliver highly creative, data-driven work quickly and efficiently.

Backed by the might of WPP and GroupM, we've seen record growth over the past two years - expanding across 17 new markets and doubling in size against a challenging industry backdrop.

Our ambition is to be the most important place in our people's careers, and with a model that sees some teams embedded with clients, others 'beside clients' or in one of our head offices, there are plenty of opportunities for variety and stretch.

Over the years, we've learnt that these principles are what set us apart and keep us fresh :

· It's not who you are it's what you bring

· We is always stronger than ME

· Don't stay put, stay curious

· Never stop asking, 'and?'
