Why you’ll love this job

We believe that what a brand does is more important than what it says—we want you to help brands do amazing, unprecedented, wild things, creating experiences that people never forget.

Why you’ll love doing it at Momentum

We are experiences creators and like to entertain with a swagger.

We add colour with every idea and every hello (just ask Rambo our reception dog). And that isn’t only for our clients – we wouldn’t have been able to crash twitter (yes we did), float a tennis court down the Thames (it’s true) or turn Alcatraz into a speakeasy bar (we really do make the impossible possible), without our incredible and inspirational team. We ensure the same entertaining spark that has created global award winning work is kept alive internally so creativity can flourish. We really believe a creative idea can come from anyone, anywhere. It’s true to say we do things differently. And we like that.

Regardless of the job title on this document, you are part of a global team of creative imagineers who have perfected the art of delighting, amusing, engaging, distracting, fascinating, enthralling, charming, immersing and absorbing consumers, customers, staff and clients of all ages and cultures on line and off line through experience. In the last 30 years, we’ve set out to achieve a cult like status as an envied creative business. One whose reputation transcends beyond the marketing and advertising category or sector. A brand experience business whose creative work is transforming the careers of our people and our clients like American Express, Samsung, Microsoft, Premier League, Nestle, SAP and Coca Cola. And whose environments continually foster creativity and new ways of thinking.

Our environment is built on experiences and ones that will stay with you for life, whether that’s jumping off a building for charity, closing Universal Studios to throw a party or helping unlock creativity in schools in Costa Rica.

Welcome to your next chapter, you just got the golden ticket and are in for quite a ride.
