At Havas, a hierarchy-free workplace ensures equality of opportunity and unity of purpose. It's the very essence of Havas PR. We're all on the same side.

Here are a few reasons why we were named "Media Employer of the Year 2013":

HaV IT! are our social events team

HaV IT! are our social events team

They keep the agency smiling (and informed) by means of regular trips to cultural events (Swan Lake, Wireless Festival and Matilda) and not-so cultural events (runs, walks and crawls).

Our Parties

Our Parties

Every summer, there’s a mini festival in a secret location with stalls, games, food, drink and live music, supported by home-grown agency talent. The Christmas Party is even better. Last year, for example….actually…..no. What happens at the Christmas Party stays at the Christmas Party.

The Friday Fry-up

The Friday Fry-up

A weekly institution. Every Friday, our catering team serves up a delicious breakfast of sausage, bacon and eggs to fuel us for that final day of the week. The more health-conscious can make it 'The Friday Fruitfest'.

Recruitment
