What’s great about it?


The work

We’re one of the UK’s most awarded independent agencies, so we know what it means to make great work. We’ve been doing it for more than 20 years for a vast range of clients, from the impressively global to the passionately regional.

Our experts across every digital discipline are dedicated to working with today’s most cutting-edge tech, refining their craft and creating work that makes a difference.


Our approach

We celebrate collaboration. Our multidisciplinary teams are diverse groups of specialists across all disciplines, from development to creative, strategy to UX. Together, they deliver projects as an agency within an agency working with a small handful of clients to understand their needs and solve their challenges.

That means, while we’re big enough to do work that’s internationally recognised, you’ve also got the opportunity to stand out for your individual contribution.


The culture

We don’t have a type. Great Staters are free to be themselves. From the headphones-on get-it-done introverts, to the bang-up-the-tunes chatterers and noise makers who keep the place buzzing.

You won’t find any big egos here, either. We’re passionate about doing brilliant work that we can all look back on with pride. That means learning, failing and succeeding as a team.


The vibe

Creating great work requires freedom and fun. We believe in encouraging both.

Work your way, whether you want to have a space of your own, hot desk, stand, sit, wander, ponder, stick things on the wall – whatever helps you do your thing. You can also get involved in our social calendar, which is packed with events, from annual boat parties and love-in away days to ad hoc office shin digs, barbeques and bake-offs.


The benefits

Yes, there’s free fruit. Yes, there’s a cycle to work scheme. And the ubiquitous Friday beers. We offer all the nice touches you’d expect in an agency, which is cool. But we’re also on top of the really important stuff.

For a start, we regularly review your performance and salary, making sure you’re progressing in your discipline, developing your knowledge and skills and feel supported doing so. You’ll also get a generous training budget that’s dedicated to your own personal development.

"We’re an ambitious bunch at Great State. There’s no fear of failure, just a real drive to do brilliant work.”
