Future Talent & Entry Level London, England Epsom, United Kingdom



Role TitleAV Assistant 



Who are m/SIX?

m/SIX is one of the fastest growing agencies in the world. As an agency that is just shy of ten years old, we were born in the digital age.


This means our approach of truly integrating data into everything we do is unencumbered by the siloes and ways of working of traditional agencies. This is what enables us to achieve our purpose: which is to help brands grow in the modern media landscape and new customer reality in which we live.


The agency is designed to think audience first – to face into disruption. We use data signals to understand the flow of audiences, and build communications systems that balance the need to build and convert demand.


We turn real behavioural data into actionable human insight that informs all communications at both strategic & implementational levels. This means that we’re geared toward business growth, not just media growth.
