Career Guide: Profero

The business

Profero is a digital marketing agency. Founded in 1998, our belief was that digital marketing would change the way consumers behave forever.

Seven years on and 5,000 campaigns later, it looks like we got it right.

Our clients include Apple, Ask Jeeves, Black & Decker, Buena Vista International, Bulldog, Butlins and Channel 4.

Company culture and style

Profero is built on passion, innovation and ideas. We expect a lot from everyone who works here, and in return we give a lot back. We are an Investor in People and have been accredited by the IPA for our Continuous Professional Development; we understand the value of good people and the value of holding on to them. As a result, we are open and honest with the team; we provide a range of benefits and the social side of working here is as good as it gets. (Having a bar in the office certainly helps!)

Working environment

When we moved into our new Camden offices, we had the chance to define our own space. At www.profero.com/newhome/, you will see a space designed to aid creative thought, ideas sharing and team building. Opportunities to work in any of our nine international offices are also available.

Graduate scheme

We adopt a rolling graduate recruitment scheme - which not only means we take on graduates as and when we need them, it means you can apply anytime, telling us in 300 words "why you believe in digital marketing".

Training

We believe every graduate should be given the opportunity to become one of our future account directors - so training will equip you with the fundamental skills to progress to the next stage in your career. Our learning culture ensures you realise your potential.

We believe the best way to learn is with hands-on experience, so from day one you will get to work on some of the biggest UK and global brands around.

Pay and benefits

Profero has a competitive entry-level salary at the top end of the scale.

You will be given shares in the company after your first year, as well as participation in a profit-share bonus scheme. Everyone here is given two 360deg appraisals a year, with clear SMART objectives to ensure their professional development is on track.

The future

Internet advertising growth has outperformed all other media over the past three years and we don't see this changing, especially as digital opportunities outside the internet continues to increase - areas such as mobile marketing and interactive television. So with digital advertising firmly established within the marketing mix, Profero is in prime position to take full advantage of this growth, but we need you to help us succeed.

To be the best in the industry, we need the best people in the industry.
