Highly Digitalized & Dynamic Environment

Leading agencies are now attractive employers

Some outdated prejudices about agencies still linger: excessive unpaid overtime, below-average pay, little day-to-day variation, and being sidelined in the digital revolution. However, this is no longer the case for us and many of our peers.

We significantly evolve year by year: We constantly test new digital tools and possibilities, such as artificial intelligence, and implement them in our projects. A few years ago, we set sustainability as a new focus area. Many of our consulting mandates border to business consultancy. The range of diverse strategies and concepts for various industries and tasks one can experience with us is vast. So, for those looking to rapidly develop, expand their knowledge and skills on an international scale, our agency is the right place.

Apply to be part of a team where your ideas matter and your growth is paramount.

Our compensation, work schedules, and overtime policies are on par with industrial companies, but we stand out in our commitment to personal freedom and flexibility for our team. Everyone has a laptop, can work from home, and is part of interdisciplinary client and project teams. The atmosphere is always friendly, constructive, and open. Everyone is encouraged to contribute ideas and make a visible impact. Colleagues are very supportive, and there's no room for a ruthless mentality. Many employees also connect beyond work.

Personal Growth and Continuous Learning
What we focus on

Personal Growth and Continuous Learning

In the fast-paced and dynamic market and economic landscape we navigate, our agency's ongoing evolution, our ability to identify key trends, and our commitment to providing timely and relevant services to our clients are of utmost importance. This also translates into a unique opportunity for our personal development and self-actualization.

Our leadership approach and corporate culture are tailored to foster this personal growth. We provide coaching and encouragement, assign responsibilities, and instill trust. Semi-annual performance reviews, along with frequent informal discussions, are key for feedback and setting our collective direction. This communication is not just top-down but equally bottom-up, which is significant in our environment of flat hierarchies. Our leaders, too, seek insights for their development. The executive team's doors are almost always open, encouraging a culture of ongoing, active dialogue.

To aid in this, we offer a variety of established in-house training programs, team-driven workshop formats, and a dedicated budget for external professional development courses.

Sustainability as a Key Principle

We manage a variety of mandates in the field of sustainability communication and in guiding companies towards more sustainable business practices. We are actively expanding our expertise and network in this area.

Naturally, we also apply this knowledge to ourselves. We are consistently working to reduce our already low carbon footprint. Since 2021, we have been offsetting the remaining balance.
