We have a simple ambition for everyone at MSL: to have a career-defining experience.  

You know the one. That time that you look back on as defining in your career and your development as a person.  The experience you refer to in future interviews.  The standout chapters in your career story so far.  

We’ve pivoted away from a value-first world (defined by how much stuff we can sell) to a Values-First world, where how we show up as people and an agency is as important as what we do.  

Building from our new We Build Belief agency proposition, our people co-created a new set of values, behaviours, and ways of working together through employee-led workshops.  Everyone had a voice, and we set about building a new culture to believe in.   

Our new value pillars of DO IT (a permission to Do), FEEL BELONGING (a commitment to the collective) and THINK INDEPENDENTLY (a drive for fresh diverse thinking) have driven our agency to greater happiness, and yes, better commercial results.   

The Role

We’re hiring a Talent Acquisition Partner to support the Influence practice, sourcing the best talent in the market.

As Talent Acquisition Partner, you'll be the key to finding great talent for MSL, Salter Baxter and Taylor Herring.
