About the Role

We have a clear people strategy and are looking for an enthusiastic HR Apprentice to join our key HR team in London.  The role will support all aspects of HR and provide a great basis from which to start your career in this field.  You will assist the HR Business Partner (HRBP) and HR Director (HRD) to deliver first class, fit for business HR to our ambitious, high performing team of just over 100 people.

Your role will initially focus on

  • Preparing letters, contracts and other paperwork.
  • Being an initial point of contact for HR with colleagues at all level – signposting them to the information they are looking for or passing onto the HRBP and HRD
  • Helping to organize HR events – for example quarterly induction days, Assessment centers, peer listening sessions, training sessions, ad hoc meetings
  • Setting up interviews for our open vacancies

As you learn more, there will be opportunity to take on more responsibility including:   

  • Helping to onboard new joiners to the business. Setting up IT, their desk, security pass etc
  • Supporting on key HR Projects – for example reporting, new HR initiatives, training courses.
  • Help develop our Employer Brand – working with our Marketing team and on our social media.

You will work closely with people at all levels of our organization, in London, and also, in time, interacting with our global offices and wider network.


Skills required/What we’re looking for:

  • A natural knack for social media and the online world
  • You are curious, want to learn and have plenty of energy and enthusiasm
  • A passion for, and interest in, brands
  • Excellent writing and oral communication skills
  • You are a real doer and a proper team player
  • Fantastic organisational skills: ability to multi-task
  • Minimum A-C grades at GCSE (or equivalent) in both English & Maths

You’ll need to have superb attention to detail, excellent communication skills (written and verbal) and interest in developing a career in HR.  This role will provide the opportunity to work with a range of people and their different needs.  We aren’t a company where HR sits in the corner and this role offers a stepping-stone to develop HR skills with progression for the successful candidate. 


About Us:

We are a pioneering customer agency, with offices in Boston, New York, San Francisco, London and Shanghai. Our promise to our clients is to deliver ‘Customer Inspired Growth’ - over the years we have helped clients like Etihad, Samsung, Jaguar Land Rover, Diageo, Ebay and Heinz grow by developing new products, services and communication together with their customers. Most of our clients have worked with us for a number of years and more than 80% return for more every year: building long-lasting relationships with our clients is the key ingredient to our success.

Insight at our company isn’t like insight at other agencies; it’s faster, more entrepreneurial and more integrated. And it doesn’t just focus on finding the ‘truth’ but more importantly on leveraging that truth with those who matter in our clients’ organisation: we truly care about and organise ourselves around having impact on our clients' business – by either making them or saving them money.

We are passionate about our people and proud of our culture.  We have launched six ‘behaviours’ to ensure that we are delivering fantastic work, continuing to learn and develop and building a high-performance culture which creates opportunities for those who work here:

  • I’ve got this: taking responsibility, doing what we say we will.
  • Only accept awesome: delivering high quality work that we are proud of and has impact.
  • Show the love: celebrating successes & ensuring everyone has a voice.
  • Do what scares you: challenging ourselves, taking risks and learning more.
  • Tell it like it is: being honest and freeing ourselves from "office politics" and "hidden agendas”
  • Open up and listen: Listening first and fully before we respond or react


We are very keen to receive applications from people from all walks of life – talented, creative people with their own voice, own ideas and perspectives. We look forward to hearing from you.

To apply for this job please email us a cover letter and your most up-to-date CV.
