At McCann Birmingham, you can be sure of a brilliant career in one of the most successful and dynamic agencies around.
As part of the UK’s largest integrated agency network, McCann Central, it’s likely you already know about our long, big brand, client list. Our huge pile of international awards. And that we’re part of a global network with offices everywhere from Birmingham to Budapest, Milton Keynes to Melbourne.
That’s all great. But what about some of the other things that make you enjoy coming to work every day?
Wellbeing, Wealth and Wisdom
As an agency, we’re committed to having a positive contribution to your life both inside and outside of the office. And we do this by focusing on the three areas that have the biggest impact – wellbeing, wealth and wisdom.
When it comes to wisdom, there’s a firm focus on helping you develop your career through a whole range of means – workshops, online learning, lunchtime masterclasses and even our own leadership programme. Everyone has their own career development plan and each year many of us gain funded qualifications from professional bodies including the IPA, CIPR, CIPD and CIM to name a few. It means our clients get the best people working on their business, and you get to be the best version of yourself.
We’ve helped lots of people take their career path in new, exciting directions too. Whether that’s an internal move (one of the benefits of being an integrated agency) or external (even as far as Australia!).
Then there’s wealth. We’re a growing business and we want all those who contribute to share in our success. There are rewards for going above and beyond on pitches, introducing new employees, winning creative awards, new business, plus on the spot and annual performance bonuses. There’s a generous 6% contributory pension, up to 30 days holiday (plus the bank holidays of course) and our many mums and dads appreciate our improved maternity and paternity pay.
But what about the things that generally make McCann Central a great place to work and give you a helping hand along the way? We are focused on physical and mental wellbeing, so provide free fruit and free breakfast. There’s lunchtime yoga, art or meditation. Flexible Fridays give you a longer lunch or a longer weekend. Naturally, a little present waiting on your desk on your birthday. And everyone’s a fan of the free chocolate trolley every Friday.
We also take whatever opportunity we can to pause and celebrate the good stuff. Whether it’s through our Mini McCanner’s Christmas event for your little ones, enjoying some top-notch cuisine for Eid, or more cake than you can shake a stick at to celebrate a job well done.
It all makes for an environment where ideas and people flourish. Whatever your role, we’ll be right behind you, rewarding your contribution and helping you reach your potential. This might be why our people tend to stick around much longer than the industry average.
Diversity and Inclusion
At McCann Worldgroup, we believe that Diversity & Engagement are foundational to achieving our mission of helping brands earn a meaningful role in people’s lives. As a globally integrated community that influences and shapes culture, our talent must reflect the multicultural marketplace we serve. And we know that when employees of all socially and culturally diverse backgrounds and identities feel empowered to share their unique perspectives at work - game-changing and market-leading ideas come to life. To that end, and in service to cultivating such empowerment, we strive to create the conditions that foster a sense of connection, belonging and shared purpose among those who come to work in our agencies.
We do this by developing internal and external global initiatives to reach our goal of embedding inclusive practices into everyday business decisions and interactions. Our efforts include, but are not limited to:
1) Leveraging strategic partnerships to source and create a pipeline of diverse talent
2) Curating bespoke programmes and events to engage emerging diverse talent
3) Utilising proprietary tools to mitigate bias during the recruiting process
4) Providing our hiring managers and recruiters diversity training as well as effective talent acquisition tools
5) Supporting internal affinity groups and external community programmes serving marginalised groups, and much more
