About ZAK Group

ZAK is the Next Gen creative agency. We create big brand ideas that engage the under 30s.

We work with ambitious brands that need to be relevant in the rapidly shifting world of culture, media, technology and consumer attitude; brands who can’t afford to miss the mark with their most important audience.

Also in our group is High Stakes Films, our production agency, and SELFHOOD, our Next Gen insight and co-creation platform with a c20K community.

We are entrepreneurial by nature and are committed to creating the best work environment and package for agency staff. We do this by investing heavily in every single team member via our ZAKademy training and development programme, which we run in consultation with the IPA. We are currently working towards our Gold accreditation.

Our culture is supportive, down-to-earth, fun and professional. We believe in regular team bonding experiences. In addition to our monthly Show + Tell evenings, where we share and celebrate great work over drinks and nibbles, we also have annual Christmas and Summer parties which have taken us to the cafe bars of Paris, the ski slopes of Meribel, the clubs of Ibiza and to the design district of Copenhagen (pre-Covid, of course).

We are growing rapidly and need strong, capable candidates to join our team.
