Thompson is a digital design and branding agency based in North Leeds, currently working remotely. We work across a range of sectors including health, wellbeing, charity/not for profit and property.
We’ve been around for a long time, so we have great clients and a great reputation, but the management team is young(ish) and determined to do things differently. We support remote and flexible working, promote local businesses, champion women in the boardroom and LGBTQIA+ rights. We don’t believe in asking anyone to work for free, even at the start of their careers, so only offer paid living wage internships. Our event series, Openhouse, helps us find inspiration in the most remote corners, and helps us cook up new ideas.
The creative industries can be busy and sometimes pressured and it’s true, we work hard, but we work just as hard at creating a fair, open culture, and welcome feedback from everyone to get us there. We talk about our wellbeing and encourage others to do the same. We take a non-hierarchical approach to project assignments; it’s about the best mix of skills, as well as helping people to pursue their own interests and aspirations.
Thompson believes in promoting inclusion and diversity and in helping combat systemic racism, sexism and other forms of oppression. We use our voice and business to actively make a change in the wider world, not just in the creative world. That’s in who we choose to work with, in the way we speak to the world, our creative work, and the way we hire. We’re not perfect but we want to get better.
We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce. If you are excited about working with us, but don’t meet every qualification listed, we still really encourage you to apply.
