If you’re looking to work in a buzzing, successful environment, amongst peers with huge experience and a real passion for digital, this could be the opportunity for you.

LIFE AT ONE
This is the part of the page where we talk about pool tables, Playstations, free food. We should show photos of awkward beer swigging and cake sales, along with a bunch of other perks and gimmicks that are usually just props for a lack of real culture.
So while we have all that (we’re still an agency after all!), nobody works here because of superficial benefits. Yes we have working from home, flexible working, amazing staff parties and training budgets, but again, that’s not why people love being a part of ONE.
The 4.9 score on Glassdoor helps.
But if we were to really think about it, ask around the studio, then it’s mainly down to being part of what we believe is the best digital team in the UK. Learning every day and playing a part in the continuous strive for personal and client success. No deadwood, no bumblers, no arrogant freelancers who don’t give a shit; just a solid bunch of passionate and positive people looking to make a difference. We all push each other to hold ourselves to a higher standard - and the rate of improvement among all levels is staggering. We all learn to think more strategically, more critically, more commercially. We all get involved.
Everyone is in full control of their own success, and there’s no better training-ground to be the best possible version of yourself than within a team who all think and want the same.
Attitude above aptitude
But we’re not for everyone. You’ve got to be a self starter, have a positive mindset, have resilience, put the team before yourself, and leave politics at the door.
We never panic hire. It’s better to have a hole than an arsehole, it doesn’t matter about talent if you don’t get on with the team and don’t love what you do.
So if you’re looking for a genuine change, not afraid to get stuck in and make some great friends, then go for it, we’d love to hear from you.
Please email your CV and examples of your work, with a brief description of your involvement in each project. All candidates will need to be able to demonstrate their technical and creative ability.
Please note you may be asked to complete a proficiency test before being invited to attend a formal interview.
STRICTLY NO RECRUITMENT AGENCIES.
