Description

Position at m/SIX

About m/SIX:

What does the agency of the future look like? Lots of agencies claim to be different, the ones thinking differently, the ones changing the world and who can be sure of the answer? We think if you were launching the agency of the future today, it might look a lot like m/SIX.

Majority owned by CHI & Partners (the UK’s #1 independent creative agency) and also a joint venture with GroupM (the UK’s #1 media network) we offer something unique: the very best media capabilities, technology and pricing in the market, coupled with deep creative empathy. We are one of the youngest (under 10 years old) and without any doubt the fastest growing media agency in the UK. With recent wins we will be a top 10 UK agency later this year by scale.
