Our focus on relationships is evident in the way we work closely with our clients, and in the way we interact with each other. Building strong relationships starts from a solid foundation; being honest and open, approachable, non-hierarchical and transparent. These simple values, created by our staff, lie at the heart of the family:
- Trust and support across the business
- Space to build confidence and challenge the norm
- Recognise the exceptional at every level

So get ready to soak up a marketing agency culture that moves to the beat of a different drum, and who the industry recognises as a Best Place to Work.
Life at OG
Strong families are built around the home, and we’re no different. We try and make work a home from home where you can relax and be yourself as well as do your best work. From the free breakfast to early-finish-Fridays and everything in-between there is never a dull moment. Octopus Group is a special place to work and we invest lots of time and thought in keeping it that way.
Our famous Summer festival, Roctostock, is a two day camping extravaganza in a field filled with our house band. It’s our biggest annual event and we look forward to it all year round.
In a busy agency environment, we believe downtime is key. Ping-pong, PlayStation, Sky TV and board games are all provided with no restriction to give Octopedes some brain space away from the desk. Warning - it gets competitive.
See the World, On Us
After three, five and seven years service you receive a two month paid sabbatical to visit that place on your bucket list, take up a new hobby or learn a new language. We’re so proud of Octopedes who can enjoy a break on us as they thoroughly deserve it.
Shoutout & Superstars
Recognising exceptional work is the cornerstone of our family. For all the outstanding efforts people make, they get recognised by the company and their colleagues, whether it’s the monthly #shoutouts or the more official Superstars of the Month with top prizes and gifts.
We appreciate your personal life doesn’t stop during work hours and keeping a positive balance is hard these days. So we do everything we can to let work and home life flex.
We offer many health & wellbeing initiatives including free fruit, daily breakfasts, discounted gym memberships and wellness days with smoothies on tap, free massages, yoga and mindfulness sessions.
Give More. Give Back.
The environment is very important to Octopedes and we’re a vocal bunch. We support, with matched funding, quarterly charity fundraising initiatives that are close to the hearts of our people.
