Mission: We're on a mission to be the world’s leading creatively-driven marketing company by putting creativity at the heart of everything we do.

McCann – Why Work For Us?


We’re McCann London. Housed in an Art Deco carpark in the heart of London’s Bloomsbury, we are purveyors of a Truth Well Told. Since 1927 we’ve made it our mission to help brands discover their true story and play a meaningful role in people’s lives. We’ve helped L’Oréal show people that “They’re Worth It” and put a “Priceless” tag on Mastercard. We’re also behind Xbox’s game-changing integrated “Survival Billboard” campaign. McCann London is proud to have been named the UK’s most awarded agency at Cannes in 2016 and was a main contributor to McCann Worldgroup Europe winning the most effective agency network in its region in the 2017 Global Effie Effectiveness Index. And that’s all because we believe that when a truth is well told it changes things.

Our Ethos

The brand is the culture

People have an amazing radar

People shop for meaning

Inner truths are the richest

Purpose is power

Cultures need fertiliser

A day in the life

Ours is one of the most exciting industries to be in. We believe creativity is the only way to survive. No idea is left unexplored and no two days are the same. At any given time, we could have team on the ground all over the world working on campaigns, prepping for a major pitch, or cheers-ing a beer on our Terrace. We race to get our free breakfast each morning and swing by our yoga classes for some mindfulness before we make our way home… And the hours in between are what we make of them.

Having a lark

We believe in the healing power of taking time to unwind. Think parties, gigs, bake-offs, picnics, pub quizzes. We run book clubs, our #underexposed photography competition, talks and events, and we even launched our new exhibition space, UpUp, with Grayson Perry in June.

The WorkOut is our health and well-being programme, ensuring our brains are cared for as much as our bodies. Not just for fitness freaks, everyone can get involved in weekly PT sessions, yoga, and more.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McCann (New York, NY) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I got contact with a female recruiter and she was really nice. She asked me about what is my favorite brand and she told me hers. She also asked me why I want to be a planner and why McCann.We spent about 40 mins on the phone. She told me some current situation in their company. That's pretty much about it.
