Working here

We have a really strong culture and people often comment on our genuinely friendly and informal style. This, combined with a real passion for great ideas, makes Leo Burnett an exciting place to work.

The Leo Burnett Group is one of the most creatively awarded communications agencies in the UK. We are a truly integrated creative agency and strongly believe that a great idea can come from anywhere. For more info on our current vacancies and how to apply see here

Development

Development

The IPA has recently awarded us a CPD Gold Standard for our commitment and approach to training for the 5th year running. This is not a surprise when you consider that last year we delivered an average of 21 hours per person. We have an in-house trainer for group training and mentoring and we regularly participate in external industry training courses.

We also offer more innovative development opportunities such as The International Exchange (TIE): Each year we send someone to a developing market for a month to work with a small NGO and local agency to develop a campaign for a charitable cause. Alice went to Recife in Brazil - find out more about her experience…..

And last year one of our Planners, Lorna, went to Malawi to work with a charity called GreenRoot Finance.

The Foundry

The Foundry

We invest in our future talent, who in turn can make a difference. The Foundry is one of London’s most exciting graduate programmes. We recruit entrepreneurial Account Managers, Account Planners, and Creatives; offering them the chance to take ownership of their own micro-agency, which works with ambitious businesses to enable them to grow and thrive. From strategic insight to creative development and production, our service combines the fresh perspectives of new talent with Leo Burnett’s expertise and resource. So, whilst working with the best in the business on big and populist brands such as McDonald’s and Kellogg’s, this year’s recruits are hard at work developing an exciting campaign for a UK charity. The Foundry believes that the key to advertising success is not to be better, but to be different. Different gets noticed. Different gets remembered. Different works. For New Business Enquiries please contact thefoundry@leoburnett.co.uk , or call 020 7071 2381. Applications for The Foundry 2016 will be opening in September 2015.

Work Experience at Leo Burnett

Work Experience at Leo Burnett

We’re on the lookout for the talent of tomorrow. Our 2014 Account Management Work Experience scheme saw eight candidates spend two weeks with us over the course of the summer, getting first-hand experience of adland and being mentored by one of our shining star Account Managers. Applications for work experience will open again later in 2015.

Leo Love

Leo Love

Leo Love is our volunteering programme and it′s all about giving a little bit of help to people who would really benefit from it. Over 50 of our people helped in local projects last year, ranging from helping to make costumes for the Notting Hill Carnival to Business Enterprise Days in schools.

All our hard work earned us the award for 'Best Contribution for Employee Volunteering' in Hammersmith & Fulham.

We’re green

We’re green

Whilst we're not a big carbon producer, we believe in doing our bit to keep track of, and reduce, our carbon footprint. Our mantra: 'consume less' led us to put in place a set of core actions to get measures in place to track our carbon footprint and our improvement in reducing it.

Last year our efforts in environmental management gained us the internationally recognised carbon measurement accreditation ISO 14001.

Lots of Burnetters want to make a difference – our Green Team is dedicated to maintaining our stance on this.
