Salary and benefits

The salary is up to £60k depending on experience and comes with 25 days’ holiday PLUS a three-day Christmas shutdown. Holidays rise to 30 days per year (plus Christmas) according to tenure.

This agency is a values-based employer and, as a result, provides a hugely rewarding environment for its employees to excel and grow. A host of additional benefits are also on offer including LinkedIn Learning and instructor-led training, regular socials and a comprehensive healthcare plan.
