Summer fun, We Are Social style

Our News
We Are Social has been one of the fastest growing agencies both in the UK and globally over the last seven years. In London, we’re currently looking for new team members across our client services, research & insight and editorial departments. Interested? You should be. Here, Jess Barlow from our HR team explains why a job at We Are Social is better than ever.

Here at We Are Social in London, we’ve been embracing the British summer sun in more ways than one. We kicked off the summer season in Cuban style, at the Queen of Hoxton with an evening full of sun, cocktails and music… not to mention the delectable Cuban sandwiches!

With some special guests from our Milan and Sydney offices, a great time was had by all – it also gave us a moment to reflect on how much we’ve achieved now that we are seven years old.


July also saw the unveiling of our exciting benefits re-vamp. We’ve improved our July and August summer hours so that everyone can maximize their opportunity to leave the office early and enjoy relaxing in the sun.

We’ve also introduced Long Service Awards, a new way to reward our employees for their dedication and commitment to We Are Social, by celebrating long-standing members of the team with gifts and long service bonuses.

In appreciation of longevity of service, coupled with the sought after work life balance, basic holiday entitlements have been increased by three days and employees’ holiday entitlements will increase by one day for each year of service – with no cap. In addition we’ve introduced sabbaticals, where employees can take up to a month (after three years of service) or up to three months off (after five years) to travel, volunteer or just try something new.

In continuation of our ongoing partnership with Kids Company, our charity partner for 2015, employees are now able to use half a day each year volunteering, with options such as becoming a mentor, hosting careers talks or taking part in a host of fundraising activities, such as an impending sky dive…


Alongside all this fun, the We Are Social family continues to grow, and with new clients coming on board and more exciting work to deliver, we’re in need of more amazing, talented, collaborative people to come and join the team. In London, we’re currently looking for Senior Account Managers and Account Directors, Research & Insight Analysts and Directors and Senior Editors with automotive experience. If you think you’d fit the bill, then drop Lisa Berardi a line. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
