We're hiring

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 in the business. We work hard to be ethical and eco-active. 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.

If you like the sound of us, we’d love you to apply. We are committed to building an inclusive team so even if your skills don’t completely match or if you don’t see your dream job here, we’d still love to hear from you, so please get in touch by emailing jobs@thompsonbrandpartners.com
