Fun, perks & other cool stuff:

Think you might fit the bill? Then here’s a little bit about what life is like at Propellernet.

We offer you an unrivalled working environment and a great company culture (no, really). We’ve received the Investors in People Award for Health and Wellbeing, and we were named a top 10 UK workplace in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 by the Great Places To Work (GPTW) Institute.

Most recently, 90 percent of the agency team was surveyed by Great Places To Work and 100% of those surveyed said: “Taking everything into account I would say this is a great place to work.”

The ‘perks’ of working here regularly feature in articles on the subject (The Guardian, for example). We also put 5 per cent of company profits into a health and wellbeing fund that we collectively decide how to spend. And each person here is entitled to a paid sabbaticals after five years’ service.

However, we don’t really think of any of these things as perks; instead, we believe that combining individual and collective ambitions into a single vision is a more powerful, more meaningful way to run a business.

On a day-to-day basis, our Academy, which includes everything from weekly updates from channel experts to training sessions on storytelling and improvisation training, has become part of the glue that holds everything together.

What’s more, every person in the agency has 12 ‘Propel Days’ a year, which are days to propel yourself forwards, professionally and personally. That’s why we’ve also picked up BrandRepublic and Marketing Agencies Association (MAA) Best Awards for how we develop our agency talent.
