Let’s talk about your future

We’re always looking for good people, and might make a place for exceptional talent – even if we don’t have a specific role open. Just drop us a line with your CV.

Get in touch

At Mr B & Friends, we believe that a diverse, equitable and inclusive agency is more creative, more exciting and more resilient. We welcome people from all backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures and experiences. Your skills, outlook and experience to date will count just as highly in your application as any academic qualifications. 

The Friends Pact

Our Pact is the package of benefits all our people enjoy. It rewards the invaluable contribution everyone makes to our success, and is designed around four key drivers – pay, play, performance and purpose.

Purpose

This is where we build our citizenship within the community. We are in the process of enhancing our policies and activities around purpose, such as:

  • Our Future Friends internship and out reach programmes
  • Internal DE&I team, addressing challenges in our agency and our industry
  • Involvement in the Bristol Creative Industries Internship Scheme
  • Pro Bono branding project for a selected charity partner
  • Equality policies
  • Sensible travel policies
  • Charitable work

Challenging the industry standard

There’s much about our industry we’d like to change. And rather than moan about it, we thought we’d do something.

Schools' outreach programme

Schools’ outreach programme

Louise Lepic, Animation Lead and Outreach programme coordinator: “How can young people who don’t have influential parents or a privileged education know what opportunities are open to them when they don’t understand the half of what we do? I’ve made links with local schools and organisations to give students a glimpse of their potential futures, with a programme of visits, workshops and work experience. It’s been the most rewarding project of my career so far.”

Future Friends internship

Future Friends internship

This can be a hard industry to get your first break. Mr B & Friends has operated the ‘Future Friends’ internship programme for many years, offering six month paid placements for young designers, writers, planners and account executives looking for their first step on the creative careers ladder. And it’s called Future Friends because that’s what we hope to find – many of our interns become fully-fledged Mr B’ers. If you’re interested in hearing about future internship opportunities, email careers@mrbandfriends.co.uk and we can add you to our mailing list.
