You might know that GroupM is ‘the world leading media investment group’ - but what does this actually mean? Put simply, one in three adverts you’ll see online or out-and-about in public have been placed with our network of media agencies, some of the best and biggest agency brands in media (including Wavemaker, Mediacom, m/SIX, and Mindshare) so we have a pretty big responsibility on our shoulders. If that wasn’t enough, GroupM is also a Top Employer (https://www.top-employers.com/en-US/companyprofiles/uk/groupm-uk-limited) meaning that we really value our employees’ wellbeing, and we have world development programmes to lead and develop our talent. Considering we’re the only media agency network to have this accreditation, we hope you’ll consider joining us in your next career move.
