Job description

Background

Dentsu is Innovating the Way Brands Are Built for its clients through its best-in-class expertise and capabilities in media, digital and creative communication services.

With consumers more connected, through a range of devices, than ever before, the era of media convergence is presenting many opportunities as well as a new, complex media eco-system. From identifying who the consumers are, to how they make their decisions, Dentsu and its brand business of Carat, Dentsu, Dentsu media, iProspect, Isobar, FoxP2, MKTG, Posterscope and Vizeum make the best use of today’s media mix to bring to life the right communication strategy and deliver the best results for clients.

Our values permeate Dentsu through our behavior both as individuals and companies. They determine how we work in partnership and through wider collaboration, how we approach our relationships internally, with existing clients and how we win new business. They also influence the way we hire new people, develop employees, review performance, evaluate reward and achieve promotion.

So what are the perks?

We’re part of a real global network, giving us 45 countries and 77 offices to draw some pretty amazing support, knowledge and expertise from. It’s also pretty handy if you ever consider a job on the other side of the world!

On that note, personal and professional growth are massively important to us, and so we like to send employees to some of those offices to collaborate, gain new insight, experience and strengthen the bonds of our network.

This is dentsu!
