A message from REJ, Head of People & Operations

If you are reading this page, you are considering coming to join us. Don't look away now! Your career is an important decision, so let me explain why you should choose 89up.

Most importantly, we’re an independent agency. We’re not backed by private equity or disengaged shareholders - if the company does well, you’ll see the rewards. 

In a small independent agency, no one is just a number. We collaborate together as a team: our brainstorms for every pitch are open to everyone in the company, as each individual has unique ideas and brings a different perspective to our clients.

At 89up we look after our team. We believe job satisfaction is tied to opportunities for learning, growth, and promotion, as well as feeling happy in your role. We believe a great working environment makes for friendships, not just work colleagues. 

89up’s core beliefs and values translate directly into our work and our culture, and our mentoring programme means every staff member has the chance to grow and develop their skills. Everyone at 89up is talented in their own way: we have some very specialised skill sets here and we nurture those talents. 

My job is to make sure that every team member receives the recognition and rewards they deserve. We trust our staff, giving them flexibility around working hours. We celebrate both individual and team wins, and provide regular honest feedback to our staff to help them grow. 

We believe in transparency, and our senior management team is visible, accessible and invested in all our colleagues.
