About this entry

We Are Social is the largest and most awarded specialist social media agency in the world. Founded just over four years ago in London, we have since enjoyed spectacular growth and built an outstanding reputation for our work. We are purpose-built from the ground–up for social media. Our staff are drawn from a blend of digital, marketing, media, PR, editorial and research backgrounds in a dynamic, client-focused structure, working in a lean and agile way and united by a culture of innovation and excellence in execution. Headquartered in London, our footprint spans the globe with offices in New York, Paris, Milan, Munich, Singapore, Sydney and São Paulo. Our worldwide headcount has doubled in the last 12 months to over 300, and this international reach has been reflected in being appointed the global social agency of record for a multitude of blue chip brands such as adidas, Lenovo, Jaguar, Tiger Beer, Indesit, Moët & Chandon and De Beers.We have conceived and delivered hundreds of innovative and successful social media programs, setting the benchmark by which all other social agencies are measured. We work with clients as diverse as Heinz, Unilever, Hyundai, Louis Vuitton, Expedia, Heineken, Cisco, Nestlé, PayPal, Kleenex and Intel on both a regional and local market basis across our eight offices. Some of our most notable client campaigns of the last year include the launch of Heinz's Five Beanz by engaging their passionate fans, reaching eight million people through word of mouth, making PG tips the most ‘engaged with’ UK brand on Facebook and helping Bulmers create an engaged Facebook fanbase, demonstrating each fan is worth over £200/year to them. We created and managed Heinz’s hugely successful (and awarded) 'Get Well Soup' campaign, where Facebook fans could send personalized cans of soup to sick friends. By making people and culture the focus of significant investment within the business, we’ve been able to make sure our culture, ethics and delivery have not suffered from our rapid growth. We promote a ‘learning’ environment for our people through a four-week induction program, investing heavily in both internal and external training and by promoting knowledge sharing between all of our staff. We’re also an international bunch, with 20 nationalities in the team and 13 different languages spoken natively. People want to work for us and rarely leave, and our extensive benefits play a part in this – it includes flexible holidays and working hours, a company pension, staff referral bonuses, birthday treats and a host of much-anticipated social events throughout the year. We lead by example, with active social media profiles across all relevant channels, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube – and we have a very active global Skype chat to share knowledge and opinions across our offices.
