Digital Marketing is renowned as a forward thinking industry with companies offering all kinds of perks to keep employees entertained and attract the best talent. With everything from beers and ping pong in the office to company holidays, it’s becoming harder and harder to compete for the efforts of the brightest and best in the industry.
Hitting the Road…
Which is why we decided to go a step further. As a specialist travel marketing agency, we saw an opportunity to put that specialism to good use. We’re hitting the road. Not just one of us. All of us. We’re going on a 12 month trip, stopping off in all corners of the globe whilst we continue to deliver fantastic work for clients.
We looked long and hard at what we wanted from our team, and as well as a passion for marketing the main thing was a desire to travel and gain life experiences through visiting other countries and cultures. Rather than cross our fingers and hope for the needle in the haystack to appear, we thought it made perfect sense to be more proactive and take the team to go and have those experiences!
Having worked in remote locations before through the company’s lifetime we know we can deliver a fantastic service just as well from a different continent as we can from down the road. Previously we even had clients asking when we were going 2 months after we’d left!
We’ll still be working as normal for clients and available during regular working hours, it’s just we might be doing it looking at a glacier or with the sea lapping at our feet (sorry!). How better to service our clients than to actually go to the places they cover and do the things on their itineraries. We can then get into the mindset of the customer and actually know what we’re talking about when we help them with their marketing, making what we offer even better which is what we’re always striving for.
Best Job Ever?
And the cherry on top? We’re offering one lucky applicant the opportunity to join us on the journey on a digital marketing apprenticeship. Pretty snazzy start to your career we think. You can find out more about that position here, and we’ll be sharing more details about that and our journey on Saturday April 1st… 😉
UPDATE: Alas, the truth is out! We’re not hitting the road just yet, it was April Fools at work! We don’t doubt the value of a nice trip away with the team though and of course we love to travel, so watch this space and it might well make its way into the employee benefits in the future…
