11 fast and adventerous years in a great team committed to the business of PR

Director (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsWe just love to keep growing whatever the ecomonic climate.

We have over 200 amazing people here in London and an incredible worldwide network at our finger tips. We have great clients and great challenges that keep our minds fully active and our hearts racing. Ketchum provides real opportunities to deliver on your dreams - be it: global issues management; celebrity social media campaigns; development of umbrella strategies; delivering the goods in emerging markets; helping people grow in their careers - the list is endless.

I love the generosity of our leaders and we know how to work together as teams and can bring experts to bear from many specialist disciplines that are truly marvellous.

We know how to flex our staff capacity in intense work times - we commit to great freelancers and they commit to us!

I love our location too - in the heart of The City and on the edge of Shoreditch - we are truly blessed!

We also have a chance to make a difference in the community with our CEO generously giving us a Community Action Day where we can get away from our desks and help those local communities that are less privileged. We've painted playgrounds, transformed community gardens, transformed community halls and brought overgrown gardens back to life.

ConsWhen we have great ideas our clients just want more and often this is at no notice. So, if you don't like the heat - keep out of the kitchen! The pace here is fast so you need to really keep focused on the right work / life balance. My tip - walk away from your desk and phone a friend when it gets too hot. I know I need to pace myself better throughout the year to make sure we don't burn out. It's up to us to slow things down at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep growing the vision even in turbulent times. Keep breaking down the barriers to any success. Keep believing in your next generation they are amazing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
