Good office? Great location in Golden Square, a stone’s throw from the

bars and restaurants of Soho. More’s building comprises five floors and

boasts amazing views of the London skyline. Even staff on the ground

floor get to look out onto the flower beds of Golden Square.



What’s it like? According to More’s head of marketing Yvonne O’Brien,

it’s ’a hugely sociable place to work’. She says: ’The sales and

marketing department organises frequent outings to Soho’s fashionable

watering holes.



We’re famous for our parties - watch out for our next one on 11 May.

We’ve got a thriving football league and teams compete for the More

Group Challenge Cup.



’There’s a real team spirit and with initiatives launching all the time,

we’re very busy. Our Golden Squares and Rollervision poster formats

launch this June.’



Any perks? ’It’s the sort of place that rewards talent and hard work and

salaries reflect that,’ says O’Brien. ’As an international company there

are opportunities to travel - I attended a sales and marketing

conference in Texas last year - and we’re offered a contributory pension

plan and life assurance.’ Reduced-rate private medical care is another

bonus.



What about training? ’We’re really hot on training,’ says O’Brien.

There’s a full sales and marketing training programme and the company

also offers a month-long induction course to all newcomers.



How does it recruit? Primarily by word of mouth, although it does use

agencies. ’As a growing company, we are always interested in talented

people’, says O’Brien.



How do you get ahead? ’Work hard and know your posters!’
