Hall & Partners – Why Work For Us?

Our Story

We started small, we thought big.

Our business was founded on distinct and original ideas about how advertising works and the relationships that consumers have with brands.

Over time, as brands evolved we have expanded our thinking to embrace new ideas and models. We provided input on everything from digital to integrated and still place the same emphasis on creativity, clarity of thought and innovation.

Principles that guide us

Our business was founded on a range of critical insights into how brands and communications work. These insights informed our founding principles:

1. Brand response is more important than advertising response

2. Different communication works in different ways

The first was important, as a great deal of research being done (even today) simply measured whether or not people liked the advertising. Mike Hall argued that everything you do should in some way strengthen the relationship a person has with a brand. At the end of the day, it is more important to have a measure of this brand impact than anything else.

The second principle recognised that not all advertising was designed to do the same thing. Different brands employ different strategies depending on their objectives – from new product launches described in a persuasive manner, to reminding people of brand values and reinforcing emotional bonds, or standing out as different and establishing leadership credentials.

We help our clients build strong brand relationships.

We are a specialist brand and communications research consultancy offering you fresh ideas at every stage of the brand planning cycle. Our strategic frameworks continue to revolutionise thinking in the industry and have led to new ways of developing brand and communications.

Today, we are responding to the challenges of new channels, more active consumers and integrated activity. We are always combining different perspectives to accommodate our clients' needs. Quantitative and qualitative research blend into one another, while analytical and behavioural modelling sit happily alongside ethnography.

Tried and tested techniques go hand in hand with the creative and experimental. We always advocate whatever works best for you.

A great place to work

You fit with us, we fit with you.

We look for people who have a natural curiosity and intelligence, who are passionate about brands and demonstrate a good balance between ambition and humility.

We like to make sure everyone at Hall & Partners passes an important test: could you happily pass a long car journey with them?

We make a commitment to everyone that they will receive training every year and there are huge opportunities to progress and develop a successful career path within the company.

If people know where they want to get to, we will support them in how to get there.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hall & Partners (New York, NY) in August 2016.


    Was sent a schedule for interviews, showed up to meet with the four interviewers in 30 minute time slots. One of my interviewers didn't show up. I had to take an "attention to detail" test after my three interviews.
