We are very excited to have been ranked 13th out of the top 79 UK media and creative agencies of all sizes in Campaign’s 2020 awards, which is a huge achievement and testimony to the fantastic team of people that make Avenue a great place to work!
We really believe that one of the ways Avenue gets it right is company culture and employee wellbeing. Flexitime is about more than just setting core hours and allowing staff to start an hour earlier or finish an hour later. Although we haven’t done away with core hours altogether, some team members choose to start as early as 6am and do their core work early or late, but they are consistently there for clients when needed.
Remote working is just as important – if you need to work from home, no problem, and no need to book this in weeks in advance. We trust each other implicitly to do a great job every day and to always put our clients’ needs first.
Since introducing this new flexible working policy at the start of the year, we have found that our staff are happier than ever and able to fit their work around their personal lives – which is important not just for our working parents, but for those trips to the bank, dog walks and everything in between. For clients, this does not mean lack of cover – our team members all keep different hours and are respectful of each other’s working patterns, but there is always a senior expert available and ready to help whatever time of day it is.
When in the office, the culture is relaxed and fun, without stress and needless office politics. Team outings are an important fixture and, while we all enjoy a good tipple, we also make the most of mother nature, with past team socials including outdoorsy pursuits, such as white-water rafting and paddle boarding.
We’re always on the lookout for top talent and are recruiting for a number of open roles, so do get in touch if you’d like to join our team!
