About the Agency:
My client is an independently owned FMCG specialist agency that has gone from strength to strength even through the Pandemic.

The agency is small but hits well above their weight in terms of clients that they service and the work that they do.

The owners and partners are active in the business and have fostered an inspiring and collaborative environment.

They like thinkers and doers in equal measure (no divas here) and encourage their team to be creatively curious, asking “Why?” when receiving a brief, feedback, and when discussing strategy and work internally.

Leveraging these relationships you will identify new streams of revenue and maximise profitability.
