International Digital Executive



Who are we?

Welcome innovators, initiative-takers, and instigators.  

We are 8,500 of the world’s leading media communications specialists, in 125 offices, across 100 countries.

We have a global client roster that’s the envy of our peers. Adidas, Coca-Cola, Mars, P&G, PSA, Richemont, Shell, and Sony to name but a few.

We help brands unlock growth through media. We do this using our Systems Thinking approach to data, technology and creativity and design communication strategies that build brands and generate sales. We’re part of WPP, the world's largest marketing communications services group, which gives us access to the richest data sets and most robust benchmarks in the business.

All this has helped us become the first network to hold the big six Media Network of the Year titles concurrently.

But the real secret to our success is simple (and not really a secret). It’s our People First, Better Results philosophy.

We know that when we invest in our people, we’ll deliver better results not only for them but also for our clients.

We also know that talent comes in all shapes, sizes, genders, and ethnicities. That’s why our agencies are open environments that celebrate differences.

Do you want to work with smart, creative, enthusiastic people? So do we.
