A GREAT PLACE TO WORK
“I have been working here for over eight years and can’t imagine spending that time working anywhere else. I absolutely love what I do and view myself very lucky to have been able to be part of and seen the growth of such a unique company!”
“I love the passion of the people who work here. The company breeds enthusiasm and that leads to great results for our clients. Our success is based on our clients’ success and when we make things work I get a great buzz.”
“There’re very few companies where you can learn to manage and launch a TV shopping channel – but I did that in my first 18 months here. Twice.”
These are just some of the views from our wide-ranging team of people.
The Specialist Works is a fast-growing, results-focused advertising agency thriving in a tough marketplace. Our people and their passion are what make us special and their personal drive and belief in the company is key to our success. And that passion for working here has led to industry recognition: In both 2012 and 2013, we have been awarded a Two Star (out of a possible three) Accreditation from Best Companies (scored from the results of an in-depth employee survey) and have achieved a coveted place on The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For list which is recognised as a benchmark of workplace excellence.
The fact that we’re now officially recognised, by The Sunday Times and Best Companies, as a great place to work, just confirms what everyone here already knows. We work hard and play hard (an over-used phrase, maybe but in our case, true) and there’s a real team spirit and sense of fun.
The Specialist Works group consists of four specialist media companies operating out of our central London, Manchester, Kent, Dublin and Gibraltar offices, run by people with a passion for inserts, TV, digital media and press, plus data, analytics and print experts, Catalist and our new creative offering, Sixth Sense. We’re a company based on specialists. Our secret is to immerse ourselves within the channels we buy and we deliver results because, unlike the way most agencies operate, our senior talent are in day-to-day contact with our clients’ business – even the MD still has a client patch and negotiates deals.
This is our tenth year and as our business grows the company is growing in industry stature. Our entrepreneurial approach shows in our results. Turnover in 2012 was over £45 million – our ninth consecutive year of growth. We have a hugely varied client list, including Barnardo’s, La Redoute, PaydayUK, Great Rail Journeys, Pavers Shoes, Cancer Research UK, Flowercard, JD Williams and they all have one thing in common – they like the way we grow their business.
Below is a selection of our current vacancies, although we always want to hear from talented people who believe that they have what it takes to help us grow our business.
