alan. is [under normal circumstances] based in a large modern office space in Aldgate, with lots of breakout space. Despite switching to a virtual model for the pandemic, we still have a tight-knit, supportive and entrepreneurial culture where we thrive on working together to create best-in-class products (which we tend to celebrate with a few drinks on a Friday).
Once lockdown restrictions are lifted, we will shift to a hybrid model of office and home working. This will ensure that everyone at the agency has the opportunity to access the space they need whilst maintaining a positive work-life balance.
We place a big emphasis on employee engagement (our engagement score through Peakon is 90%), as well as wellbeing, with all staff trained around mental health, and mental health champions permanently in place to offer support and organise activities to promote good mental health.
As a content agency for leading B2B brands, we live and die by the strength and originality of our creative ideas. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that we promote equality and diversity in our workplace, and we encourage applications from all suitably qualified candidates regardless of their race, gender, disability, religion/belief or sexual orientation.
