Job Description


We’re a global creative agency, specialising in experience and culture, with offices in London, Sydney and LA, and have plans for further global expansion. We create campaigns and experiences that can be amplified across every touchpoint, reimagining how we engage, immerse and entertain audiences. We strive to build worlds that place narrative design and storytelling at the heart of everything we create, captivating our audience with stories that are designed to be shared.

We have a dream list of clients and have delivered, and are delivering, some of the most innovative and inspiring campaigns in our category. Our ambition is to help our clients to contribute to the culturally rich world that surrounds us in a meaningful way with the work that we create.

It's an exciting time for the agency and our incredibly talented team who call us home. We were named ‘Brand Experience Agency of the Decade’ by Campaign Magazine in 2019, and have just been named both The Drum’s Brand Experience Agency of the Year and Team of the Year.


We’re passionate about our work and believe that great ideas are derived from the ambition to succeed, the willingness to tread where others might not and the determination to face up to and change the status quo. We influence our clients, creative partners and each other through the power of our voice and clarity of thought. We harness the power of the collective through collaboration and, as one of the team at Amplify, you will contribute to the success of the agency.

We are an independent agency that believes being financially well run is as important as the great work we deliver so commerciality and creativity sit side by side. We believe in growth through hard work, commitment and the ability to rise to the challenge; quite simply when you work at Amplify you’re driven to want to make things happen. We are focused on delivering great concepts through the delivery of first class project and production management, so rock solid foundations and processes underpin everything we do as an agency.

  • 22 days paid holiday plus after two years you’ll get an additional day for each year you’ve worked here plus we operate a day for a day lieu should you be asked to work weekends and / or bank holidays

Everybody at Amplify embodies the same set of values and it is our internal culture and shared ethos that inspires the work we do for our clients.

We are fuelled by curiosity.

We always want to learn more, to know more – about our brands, people and the cultural and social context that we all exist in. We want everyone to share their own lived experiences and perspectives to help inform our point of view. Whether we’re commissioning our own research in to youth audiences with Young Blood or exploring the latest developments in sustainable production, we seek out and share what’s happening now and what’s coming next.

We are passionate about culture.

Whether it’s film, fashion or football doesn’t matter – what we love at Amplify is passion. Passion for something more than just the work – because the things we care about outside the office, inspire and improve the work we do inside it. We’ve got e-sports fanatics, artists, devotees to musicals and more DJs than is practical for any agency party, but most of all we’ve got a team of people who genuinely care about culture in all its amazing forms.

We are executionally excellent.

As an agency we put a lot of heart into everything we do. Whether that’s coming up with amazing ideas, building an experience, managing a broadcast, directing a film, crafting a deck or driving profit on a job – we want to deliver work that hits the mark for both our clients and ourselves. Attention to detail, rigour, problem solving and a collaborative spirit are the qualities that ensure while we can’t deliver perfection every time, we can make sure we aim for it.

We are Amplify

And we are always a work in progress…

We know we can always improve, both in the work we deliver and the culture we foster. So we embrace the new ideas, ways of doing things and challenges to our status quo that every Amplify person, new or old, can bring. Whether it’s striving to be a representative and diverse place to work, ensuring the policies we have in place are supportive and equitable or creating the forums for every employee to have a voice and feel valued, we never want to rest on our laurels but continually push ourselves to do – and be – better.
