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 our family:
- Trust and support across the business
- Space to build confidence and challenge the norm
- Recognising the exceptional at every level

They say like-minded people attract each other. So, if you’ve read this far, you’re probably already curious and just the sort of motivated individual we’re after. Become an ‘Octopede’ and you’ll soon discover that, although we expect you to work hard, we pull out all the stops to make your working life a fun and rewarding one.
So get ready to soak up a marketing agency culture that moves to the beat of a different drum. We're even recognised by our industry 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 breakfasts to early-finish Fridays and everything in between, there's never a dull moment. Octopus Group is a special place to work, and we invest a lot of time and thought into keeping it that way.
Our famous summer festival, Roctostock, is a two-day camping extravaganza in a field, complete with house band. It’s our biggest annual event, and we look forward to it 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 their desks. Warning - it gets competitive.
See the World, On Us
After three, five and seven years of service, you receive a 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, we're happy for them to enjoy a thoroughly deserved break on us.
Shoutouts and Superstars
Recognising exceptional work is the cornerstone of our family. Octopedes get recognised for outstanding effort by both their colleagues and the company, whether it’s the monthly #shoutouts or the more official, quarterly Superstar awards, with top prizes and gifts.
We appreciate your personal life doesn’t stop during working hours, and switching off can be hard these days. So we do everything we can to help you find the right balance, including flexible start and finish times and the option to work from home from time to time.
We offer many health and wellbeing initiatives, including free fruit, daily breakfast, discounted gym membership, yoga classes, and wellness days with smoothies on tap, free massages, and mindfulness sessions.
Give More. Give Back.
We support, with matched funding, charity fundraising initiatives that are close to the hearts of our people. We also offer employees two days of volunteering a year at a local charity of their choice, so they can make a difference to the causes that matter most to them.
Everyone should feel at home, at work.
At Octopus Group, all employees can be true to their authentic selves. Everyone is empowered to bring what makes us special and unique to the work we do. We are committed to investing in an inclusive culture that maximises the talent, skills, and diversity of our workforce. We strive to ensure that inclusivity and equality are not only at the heart of our company, but also aligned with all the clients and suppliers we work with.
