Creating equal opportunities

Whilst equality of opportunity is at the heart of our recruitment process, we recognise our industry has a diversity problem and needs to go further. 


In 2019, we launched our BAME academy process in which, where possible we offer at least one BAME candidate every academic year an internship role.

Naureen, Illustrator


Naureen was our first recruit as part of our BAME academy process. A hugely talented illustrator, she helped us secure a key account, with her outstanding creativity. 


Having lit up the agency for 2 months, she decided to return to her native Dubai - luckily we can still use her on a freelance basis!
