Flexible work environment
We work hard, but recognise the need for a healthy work-life balance, and we do everything we can to help you find that. Every Friday, we finish at 4pm, allowing the team to start the weekend early. Everyone can work from home or out of any WeWork of their choice, with community working spaces, rooftop lounges, endless coffee and even free beer in the evenings. One day a week is also dedicated to collaboration – whether that’s in-person catch ups or brainstorms, with treats and snacks provided.
Working from home is not for everyone and creating the perfect working environment can be tricky. To help our team set up their remote office, we provide all our team with the furniture and equipment they need. We also have a monthly stationery allowance so that you don’t have to hunt around for a notebook.
Shoutouts and celebrations
Recognising the incredible work of our team is so important to us, and every month, we celebrate our achievements with prizes and gifts for the Pixel that has gone above and beyond. We also get together every quarter for our socials, closing down laptops and stepping away from desks for some much-needed downtime. From bake-off sessions to pottery painting, we’re always on the hunt for new activities to try out.
We all have our own individual passions, and we want to encourage everyone in our team to get involved in charities that are close to their hearts. Everyone at Words + Pixels is eligible for one day’s volunteering a year to get involved with a cause of their choice, and be part of meaningful change.
Once a year, Words + Pixels escapes the city for our annual retreat to focus on team bonding, planning for the year ahead and getting those creative juices flowing.
After five years of working at Words + Pixels, you can apply for paid sabbatical, giving you the chance to visit new places, learn a new hobby or take up a language.
Our relationships with journalists are at the heart of our business and we’re always on the lookout for new ways to learn from them. Every month, we host masterclasses with journalists from a range of different backgrounds to pick their brains and learn about the latest topics they are interested in, so that we can share this insight with our clients. We also have regular sessions with our international partner agencies to learn how it's done across the globe.
It’s really important to us that team members are able to work with clients they are passionate about. To help achieve this, everyone receives a new business bonus for every new client they personally bring in.
Health and wellbeing
We provide many health and wellbeing perks from health insurance to discounted gym memberships and massages. This ensures everyone has what they need to look after their physical and mental health.
We’re always on the lookout for like-minded people who want to join the team and help shape the agency. If you’re interested in learning more about us, or just want to get in touch and say hello, we’d love to hear from you.
