Intern PR and Communication
Who are we?
We connect brands to consumers, through their passion by weaving brands into the culture of sport and entertainment. We work with brands who sponsor sport and entertainment properties or who are endemic to them to create campaigns that deliver impact across the marketing mix.
At the heart of everything we do is Brutal Simplicity of Thought – the belief that simple ideas enter the brain quicker and stay there longer.
The variety of briefs and clients keeps the agency alive and buzzing and we are proud to work for brands such as Heineken and Reebok. We are not constrained by disciplines, we are passion point experts who can tap into a range of specialists across strategy, sponsorship rights, content production, PR, digital, influencer marketing and more.
Our vision and aspiration is to become the most inclusive, equitable and diverse agency in our space within the next three years. Please read our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion policy on our website
