What you will be doing
We choose to introduce our graduates to the business through the most accessible department: the client service teams.

We are The Media People
We are looking for grads who are hungry to learn and ready to shape their Marketing career in the heart of London.
The Media People. Online. Offline. We are your people.
A young, growing media agency dedicated to excellence across all media channels – both on and offline.
Our name comes from the fact that we place our people and the relationships that we build with clients at the top of our priority list.
We are a brave business, using our many years of industry experience from various fields and disciplines to be the best in our field of expertise.
Personal development is very important to us - to ensure this, we review everyone's progress regularly to help focus and grow the personal skills within the team. Promotions and pay rises are given when deserved, rather than unnecessarily waiting a whole year to review.
We have a very supportive, “family feel” environment within our office – it's what helps us to collaborate and deliver exceptional work to our clients on time and within budget. On a day-to-day basis, if you enjoy your tunes while you work then you'll fit right in.
Our quarterly meetings happen over company breakfast and allow us to step back, celebrate our achievements over the past three months and look to the future. It’s an opportunity for everyone to contribute to the vision and growth of TheMediaPeople.
Celebrating the end of the week is a big event in our office - we have a drinks trolly that is kept fully stocked, ready for the moment when we can all let our hair down and enjoy time together away from our desks.

Our Future - Where we're going
Steve Husband, Co-Founder
TheMediaPeople was founded in 2015 with the aim to become a leading Media Agency across both Traditional Media and Digital Platforms.
We take pride in investing in our people; not just in shaping the personal development of our team, but in ensuring our client delivery is unparalleled within the sector.
We want to be the best in the sector, and experts at what we do: our rapid growth reflects our successes so far, with the team expanding from just two founding members to over 14 new starters in just 18 months.
The future of TheMediaPeople is about continuing this growth by hiring the best talent, bringing in new vision and new ideas - that's where you come in.
Graduates fit our growth strategy perfectly, and we're looking forward to seeing what you can offer to our future, alongside what we can do to accelerate yours.
