Wanted. Clever dicks who care.
You need to be smart, passionate and driven if you want to join our team.
But that’s a given. Ad agencies are crawling with copywriters who can turn out a killer pun and execs who talk the talk.
What we want are people who care. Really care.
We need account men and women and creatives who care about our clients and their success, our results, our partners and the agency’s reputation.
This means taking the time to understand our clients’ businesses. Not simply what they do or sell but their industries and their marketplaces
By identifying opportunities, threats and emerging trends you will be able to provide better advice for their brands.
And you’ll become an asset to their business which in turn will make you an asset to The White Room.
Your opinion will be valued and your advice sought on any brand or communication issue.
So if you join us you will spend time in display homes, you will go through the process of buying a new car, you will be reading consumer blogs and Facebook posts.
In short, you’ll be asking a lots of questions.
Keeping your eye on the prize
Playing the blame game is not our bag. Nor do we accept what others accept.
We want only one thing for our clients.
We want them to be number one.
This means you’ll have to be bold and brave, you’ll have to push the envelope, you’ll have to find better, more innovative ways of getting a job done.
And you will keep your eye on the prize.
Too many in our industry are distracted by noise – by the shimmer of awards, the buzz of attending media events, the cache of having the most LinkedIn connections.
Your most rewarding professional achievements will the critical role you play in driving a client’s business to the top.
You will be known as someone who delivers.
At The White Room we talk a lot about partnering our clients in their success.
But we never forget the contribution of our suppliers.
Suppliers often miss out on the glory of a great campaign. However, without them our creative work and our ability to put out a message would be much the poorer.
So you must never think of them as mere providers of a service because they’ll have no buy-in, no sense of ownership or responsibility.
You must regard the deep pool of talent we draw upon, from printers to producers, animators to actors, as members of our team.
And you must demand they share the TWR Care ethos.
The more we engage with our suppliers the better the result will be for our clients and the greater the rewards will be for their businesses.
Reputation is everything
We care about what people think about us.
We care how we are perceived by our peers, our partners, our clients and each other.
Which is why at all times we conduct ourselves with integrity and honesty.
These are our core values, our mission statement, what we hang on to when things get confusing in this era of disruption and disconnection.
If you don’t care knock on another door. There are plenty who don’t.
