Omnicom brands

Working at a media agency

Simply put, a media agency takes a client’s messaging for their brand and looks at how best to strategically communicate it to the consumer, taking into account people’s habits and behaviours (when and what they watch, read, listen to, how they buy products etc.). A media agency will typically have many departments that cover each specialist area within this process, all working together to deliver commercially successful, outstanding campaigns for the client.

Working at OMG

OMG is an inclusive community of over 1600 employees. Our people are passionate about media and driving innovation and we’re not afraid of doing things differently here. Inspiring our people and our clients is at the heart of everything we do.

In 2020, we relocated all our agencies into our Bankside headquarters on the Southbank in London. This has opened up new levels of support across the agencies, whilst retaining their independent brilliance and entrepreneurial spirit. For our people, this has also provided great opportunities for mobility within the agencies, allowing them to thrive in different environments.

We are looking for people that welcome and embrace difference, thrive on collaboration, have a positive outlook and match us on our passion for media, innovation, and transformational thinking.

But most importantly, we are keen to meet and hear from people that want to shape the OMG community, that value difference and diverse thinking.

We are committed to providing a truly inclusive environment that reflects Real Britain and the cities where we are based, where everyone is able to bring their true selves to work, diverse voices and minority communities are valued, heard and well represented.

At a wider Omnicom level, we have the Omnicom People Engagement Network (OPEN), the umbrella group for all employee engagement groups and activities across Omnicom globally. These groups include gender, ethnicity, LGBTQ+ and disability, and work to foster an inclusive and engaging working environment.

As part of our commitment to creating a truly inclusive environment, we have nine employee advisory groups at OMG and 80 passionate representatives from across our business working collaboratively to develop best in class initiatives and programmes of inclusivity, support and belonging for the business to adopt, either at a Group-wide level or for agencies to deliver through their own diversity and inclusion programmes so that we can strengthen the sense of belonging within OMG.

Disability Advisory Group

OPEN DisAbility’s core objective is to put disability inclusion at the heart of all we do; for our people, our clients, and for consumers. The group works to empower those with visible and invisible disabilities throughout their entire employee life cycle, while at the same time working to create and celebrate inclusive creative outputs for our clients.
