Digitas – Why Work For Us?





We are a global marketing and technology agency that transforms businesses for the digital age. We exist to helpbrands embrace the creative and technological changes revolutionising all aspects of their business. 

Our expertise across insight, brand building, creative storytelling and real-time distribution enables brands to get fit for the future, no matter where we join them on their digital journey.

To do this requires a unique culture capable of supporting diverse talent. We call our collaborative way of working blending, and it’s central to everything we do – allowing us to take ideas from strategy and concept to launch and evaluation as quickly and effectively as possible.

Whether in a single room or across our 40 offices worldwide, blending lets us cast the right people for the challenge. The perfect blend takes our clients further and faster on their digital journey, delighting customers on the way.

This approach embraces the creative tension between left brain and right brain. We believe that when you combine data and storytelling – when mathematicians and poets join forces – you get more powerful results.

All this means we’re well-equipped to meet the challenges of marketing to today’s sophisticated audiences. We help companies of all shapes and sizes decide What’s Next ... and then we take them there.

The stars of tomorrow

A big part of nurturing a vibrant culture is looking after our talent. It helps keep us on our toes. We have a thriving grad and intern culture around the globe, and they do much more than make the coffee. We ensure all our young team members get to work on exciting projects and gain valuable experiences from their time with us.

Brain Food

In our line of work nothing ever stands still. It’s our priority to be thought-leaders and spark interesting conversations. We’re committed to continually learning, staying inspired and inspiring others.

Our culture

We’ve developed a culture we’re incredibly proud of. Our talented teams look after each other like family, their hard work and play helping to create a place like no other.

Great work demands more than making things pretty and shiny. We use data and meaningful insights to really fire up the creative process. We understand that powerful storytelling is the best way to motivate behaviour, and that data and analytics can help us get under the skin of that behaviour. Simply put, we connect data with storytelling.

To ensure people are at the heart of the brand stories we tell, we’ve organised everything we do for our clients into three main areas:



For us, insight means never relying on assumptions or generalisations. It means understanding how people really interact with content, across the full spectrum of media channels. We use these unique insights to inform our ideas, personalise our messages and reach people at the right moment, in the way that feels most natural. This is when real magic happens.



We believe in blending strategy, creativity, media and technology. Our experts work closely together to solve our clients’ business problems in compelling, innovative ways. We develop big and small ideas that bring brands alive whether they exist as services, stories or campaigns.



Our holistic view of the relationship between owned, earned and paid media means we can create connections that count at every stage of the customer journey. We’re experts at designing for all kinds of digital platforms, harnessing the power of digital media to engage people in unexpected ways – and increase conversations about our clients’ brands.

Design & buildDesign & build
Huge audiences, high stakes. Crafting cutting-edge web portals from scratch is our speciality – and we do it for some of the world’s biggest brands.
Affiliate marketingAffiliate marketing
Word is, there’s nothing like word of mouth. We’re not just experts at generating it – we can make it count towards your bottom line.
Creative Creative
In this high-tech world of ours, one thing hasn’t changed. The idea is everything. Our creative team generates, refines and delivers ideas that change the way people think about brands.
Branded contentBranded content
We create content that embodies the values of your brand, whether it’s a film or animation with killer production values, or editorial that resonates with your audience.
Content strategyContent strategy
Content is king, goes the saying. We couldn’t agree more. But creating great content requires the right conditions – something our content strategy team can work with you to create.
User experienceUser experience
Whether plotting user journeys or diving into the details, our UX team puts the user first. That results in smoother navigation, greater relevancy, and increased engagement.
Whether it’s the latest responsive technique or a lush app you’re after, we deliver pocket perfection.
Social media Social media
Since sharing is caring, we’ve embedded social expertise within every department. We’ve found that having social at the heart of everything we do results in work that’s far more shareable.
Laying the groundwork for meaningful interactions between you and your customers, we plan, manage and measure brand conversations – wherever they take place.
Managed servicesManaged services
We don’t just design and build websites – we host and manage them too. Business-critical services with 24/7 support have been a core offering from our very inception.
Data reveals all – but only if you know how to read it. Our dedicated analytics team can discern what the numbers are really saying, and spot the small changes that make a big difference.
Seek and ye shall find. Search is a little more complicated than when that line was penned, but we have the expertise to ensure you come out on top.
We believe pay-per-click is a crucial part of the marketing mix. The secret is in using it elegantly, as part of a wider media strategy. We can help you with the plan, the media and the execution.
User researchUser research
Whether meeting your audience, or field testing our solution with the people that will actually use it, we’re always out in the field, informing our work with a better understanding of the people you really do business with.
Social business designSocial business design
Making the most of today’s opportunities requires a fresh approach. We can help you make the changes necessary to manage conversations, lead audiences, and get more likes than you know what to do with.
Media planning and buyingMedia planning and buying
Having our own in-house media team lets us deliver smoother, smarter campaigns from end to end.
Technology Technology
The latest. The greatest. No matter the tech, our tech-bods are on it. So when a technological hurdle presents itself, we’re ready to jump.
What's Next ...What's Next ...
We’re thirsty for the next innovation. So very thirsty. Whatever possibilities present themselves as our fantastic industry develops, you can be sure we’ll be all over them.

Can brands create culture?

This is the question some of the UK’s leading creative thinkers, innovators and disruptors will be wrestling with at the inaugural DigitasLBi UK NewFront on Monday 13th October.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Digitas in July 2007.


    I reached out to Digitas directly because I was looking to jump into the interactive side of advertising. After an initial phone conversation with the recruiting team, they had me come in to meet with 4 individuals. The interview process went so well! Everyone was incredibly nice and was able to field all questions I had asked. They gave me a thorough view of what I could expect with the position.
