At Wavemaker, our mission is to 'make the future'​. Why? Because we were created to reinvent the media agency. This puts us in the unique position of truly being able to deliver next-generation solutions for our clients'​ challenges. Challenges such as; ‘Move us from mass marketing to precision at scale’, ‘Help us transform our media practice to drive global growth’, ‘Make us relevant for a young new generation of luxury lovers’ and ‘How do we integrate data sets to give a single customer view?’. Our 7600 people do this every day, across 90 countries worldwide, either locally or via one of our 12 multimarket hubs.

What does reinvention look like? For us it's best demonstrated in three ways: Care. Create. Grow.

We know that the future is made by those who care.

We care about making a difference to our work and our world. So we bring passion, purpose and that extra something to everything we do. We want the best, so we work with the best, inside and outside our company. Brilliance only happens when people are free to be their true self. Working parents, side hustlers, career returners - everyone is important and when we embrace our uniqueness and find ways to work together, we all win.

Life at Wavemaker

Our offices provide a range of local benefits and ways of working, which are designed to enable our people to live their best lives both inside and outside of work, and everything in between.

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & inclusion is one of our core values. And our market leaders around the world are directly measured on it each year as part of our overarching company strategy. Without inclusion, remarkable creativity and rapid business growth simply can’t happen. We are taking action on equality by ensuring that we seek diversity in the recruitment process both internally and externally, in succession planning for key senior roles, and in exporting talent to the wider Group. We see the value in a diverse talent pool and find ways to enable a flexible and inclusive culture. However, reaching a level of complete equality requires a deep, cultural change. This is why we embrace and encourage every single one of our 7,600 Future Makers and their individual passions. We are most proud of our grassroots initiatives such as Women @ Wavemaker, WM Roots, WM Pride and WM Enable – where people are making the future because they truly believe in it.

Women @ Wavemaker

Committed to ongoing programmes to encourage the development of current and future female leaders by tackling barriers to progression through learning and coaching.

WM Roots

Encourages frank and open conversation around cultural and ethnic diversity and aims to increase and champion BAME representation with the agency.

WM Pride

In our view the future is made by those who create.

Not in the old way, but the left-and-right brain way of science and imagination. Our new breed of media demands the whole package. So we are building a new kind of global culture that prizes ingenuity and backbone in the face of tough challenges. We hire experts from the broadest range of specialisms. And we invest heavily in learning and development to ensure that our teams are consistently at the top of their game.

How we hire

Every Future Maker brings something unique to the table, so we are never looking for exactly the same kinds of people across the board, and nor are we ever trying to fill exactly the same sorts of roles. Mostly our hiring process usually consists of a written application or CV, the interview stage during which we commit to at least one face to face meeting, and then a decision – but who those candidates are and which one becomes our next Future Maker, is always an adventure!

Learning and career development

We are committed to creating amazing careers for employees, and as part of this we ensure that all of our people have a career discussion at least once a year. Everyone at Wavemaker has access to our employee platform Future Me. Through this they can create a personal development plan just for them, by setting goals, exploring relevant learning and development options, providing and receive feedback from peers and and celebrating each other’s successes. And it enables us at the centre to identify common skills and opportunities for mobility and growth across our network.

We believe that the future is made by those who grow.

Our business goal is simple: to help brands grow. Our method is unique: our Future Makers around the world use their Purchase Journey prowess to spot problems and opportunities for clients, and turn both into growth with leading-edge solutions at the intersection of media, content and technology. We are applying this thinking to the way in which we grow our culture and our people, partnering with several organisations such as UN Women and Out in Tech. As a result we are winning awards around the world including Ad Age Best Place to Work, Great Place to Work Australia and Canada and Best Companies to Work For UK – for which we are extremely proud.
