Having held the Inmarsat account for amost six years, it's a special client/agency relationship which has consistently produced incredibly varied, award-winning work over the years ; from brand to thought leadership, virtual and live event production to developing sales support and creating social and web video and article content, there isn't much of the Inmarsat business we don't touch or get involved in.

No two days are the same on the Inmarsat team but it's with a team who value a fun working environment as much as the highest quality output!


We're problem solvers. We don't just spot problems (that's the easy bit) we come up with smart, creative solutions.

We're active. We don't sit around assuming someone else will make something happen, we're driven to get up and do it ourselves.

We're always hugely ambitious for the work. Not content with 'good enough' because we all know that's not actually good enough.

We're adaptable, not inflexible. That way we're always open to explore new ideas, experiences and channels.

We're team players, not lone wolves. Because we'd be crazy not to make the most of the huge pool of talent around us. Plus it's much more fun to work together.

We use our EQ, as well is our IQ. People who 'get' people are so much better at their jobs, and nicer to be around. If this sounds like a team you'd like to be part of, please get in touch
