McCann Worldgroup – Why Work For Us?


At McCann Worldgroup our goal for talent is to unleash the creative potential of every employee. We achieve this by nurturing an inclusive environment where creativity is cultivated and great ideas are celebrated. When joining McCann Worldgroup - and any of its agencies – you will be guided by a set of core values that encourage generosity in collaboration, integrity in all of our relationships, and the championship of bravery in innovation and new ideas. These values define how we work together every day to create game-changing work.

Our teams are also focused on helping you to bring your best self to work each day. We believe that everyone should have a great manager and meaningful work experiences, and continuously strive to connect people to the right career opportunities at the right time. At McCann Worldgroup, you will enjoy leading-edge training, alternative work arrangements, work-life perks, and the opportunity to move around our global organization.  

We take our personal responsibility to the world seriously. Whether it be through the clients we work with or in serving the local communities in which we operate, we believe that we have a duty to contribute and champion good citizenry.

But don’t just take our word for it. Check out some of the powerful work our network has produced to help our client’s drive social and economic issues to the forefront.

“Immunity Charm” by McCann Worldgroup and McCann Health India

To help increase childhood vaccination rates in Afghanistan, McCann Worldgroup and McCann Health India created the “Immunity Charm” campaign, which was recognized with a 2017 Cannes Lions Grand Prix for Good.

“Real Problems” by McCann Worldgroup Lima

To address the problem of teenage pregnancy, and the social, economic and family issues that surround it, Save the Children Peru partnered with McCann Worldgroup Lima to create Proble + Reales (“Real Problems”), an educational platform that seeks to minimize disinformation around teen pregnancy.

“#GuiltyTags” by McCann Paris

McCann Paris created #GuiltyTags, a social media campaign to illustrate the responsibility communities have to keep their children safe. The campaign, in partnership with Innocence in Danger, creatively uses Instagram to tell the stories of nine children based on real cases.

"#SmokingBlind" by McCann Torre Lazur

Most people think they know the risks that come with smoking. But a team of creative directors from the healthcare communications agency McCann Torre Lazur (MTL), a McCann Health Company, is making it their mission to publicize a devastating side effect of smoking that has so far flown under the radar: blindness.

“Brutal Cut” by Weber Shandwick

Weber Shandwick teamed up with ActionAid to generate greater awareness around the brutal traditional of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Africa. The campaign has helped unlock lottery funding to help build safe centers for girls at threat of FGM, and support other initiatives to help women and girls.

“The World For All Animal Care And Adoptions in Mumbai” by McCann Worldgroup India

McCann Worldgroup India worked with ‘The World for All Adoptathon’ to urge attendance in the event and promote pet adoptions. The global response to the heartwarming campaign was overwhelming.

We believe that Diversity and Engagement is a business imperative that is foundational to achieving our vision to become the #1 creatively-driven global marketing company. We strive to create an ethos of belonging, connection, and shared purpose which ultimately fuels creativity, innovation and business growth.  Because we know that when people of all backgrounds and identities boldly share their unique perspectives, game-changing ideas come to life.

In addition to the work, we also encourage our own people to support causes that are important to them. From the Red Cross in Singapore, to Second Harvest Food Bank in California, to DiYI Foundation in Taiwan…our people dedicate their time during regular work hours to support the communities where we live and work. Trying to make a small difference every day.
