Blackbridge is an employee-owned business, and has been since October 2020. In a field where agencies are often controlled by distant conglomerates, or are start-ups without much depth of support, we’re refreshingly agile and well-resourced. We believe that our employee ownership makes us more entrepreneurial, more attractive to talent and better at maintaining client relationships.
As a member of the OneAgent Global Network, the world’s largest network of employer branding agencies, we can help our clients implement their people strategies internationally. Not least because we’re able to draw on attraction and engagement expertise in all corners of the globe.
Blackbridge operates a balanced scorecard. Our four measures are Client First, Commercial Success, Forward Together and Exceptional Work.
Client First means that ultimately, your success is what’s important. (We’re happy to work with remuneration schemes that tie our reward to your KPIs.) Commercial Success means recognising the importance of staying solvent, and having enough resources to reward our people and to invest in new services. Forward Together means being progressive, in terms of providing training and providing innovative client solutions. Exceptional Work means that we like to push boundaries, and exercise high levels of quality control.
We care passionately about training. Our people regularly attend courses, and we’ve recently invested in PRINCE2 training for account managers. Our graduate recruits work closely with directors, meaning these mentees have become some of the brightest prospects in the business.
We keep an eye on our environmental footprint, recycling where possible, practising conscious energy consumption, providing bicycle parking facilities and using paper made by sustainable methods. Environmentally, we’re keen to ensure our suppliers are as well-behaved as we are, too.
Our favoured charities are the Whitechapel Mission, the young people’s charity, SkyWay, and the infantile nystagmus charity, IN-vision.
Interested? Come and work for an agency full of creativity, energy and like-minded people.
