Building a team for tomorrow.

This is an exciting time for us as we evolve Wilson Fletcher into the consultancy that our clients will need tomorrow.

We’ve built our reputation on helping our clients around the world realise their digital potential, and we’re now building a new generation of our distinctive hybrid strategy and design company to continue that work long into the future.

We believe in hiring smart, broad-thinking people who can look at problems from diverse perspectives, so we’re deliberately open to people with differing backgrounds and experiences.

We love a hybrid: if you don’t fit any of the roles exactly, but believe you have something interesting to offer (and can demonstrate why) get in touch and tell us how.

What is Wilson Fletcher like?

Our first 15 years have been built on a distinctive set of principles, and these have never been more important as we build the next generation of the company.

These should give you a flavour of what it’s like to work here.

  • A small, senior team that clients work with closely.
  • A flat culture where everyone has a voice in everything we do and there are absolutely no communications boundaries
  • A culture more like a family than a company, where everyone is the same in the studio as the bar.
  • A belief that work/life balance is a ridiculous concept for people who love what they do.
  • A place where doing the best possible work always comes before making as much money as possible.
  • A team that works together every day because collaboration always leads to better thinking.
  • A company where ‘we’ always, and very naturally, comes before ‘I’.
  • A place for people who don’t take themselves too seriously, where wine o’clock is a thing and the dog a force of nature.
