What attracted me to the tree?

Before I came to the office for my interview, I would have said the clients and the work the company is doing. After meeting everyone and having (several) drinks, it’s definitely the team. Not only are they clearly excellent at what they do, each one is uniquely hilarious and mad.

My experience

When my dreams of becoming a famous playwright without going to the effort of actually writing any plays crashed and burned, I joined a local London magazine as an intern. Two years later, I was an editor in charge of three magazines and, although not penning Tony-winning stage productions, I was able to write every day.

After working there for three years, I tried my hand at freelancing and began focusing more on digital copywriting for agencies. After the rigidity of a print magazine, I found the format liberating and exciting.

Being the loudmouth that I am, sitting home alone or in cafés, tapping away at my keyboard didn’t really suit me, so I joined a tech start-up as Content and SEO manager. I spent just over a year there, learning the ins and outs of different CRMs, creating content plans and producing daily blog posts.

I missed some of the variety I had while freelancing and so, not to sound too Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the tree feels just right. 

Meet the team

Be interesting and interested. That's what we ask of our staff.

The opportunity to build a team and service clients using your own ideas is exciting, isn’t it?

No one would mind me saying that this is a diverse and unique mix of individuals.’s a young, exciting organisation that’s ready to blossom

From my very first interview, I had a great feeling about the tree.

There’s a brilliant atmosphere here, and you can see that reflected in the quality of work.

Fortune favours the bold.

Why not try and have some fun with work, fancy a beer?

We're all born naked and the rest is drag.

As soon as you walk in there is a warm and welcoming atmosphere

I work across an incredibly diverse range of clients at the tree.

Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Creativity paired with business has always been my passion.

If a tree needs sunshine to grow, then the team at the tree are the sun.

The Fear you entertain today will make you a nonentity tomorrow.

The welcoming atmosphere instantly had an impact on me

The tree is a place where friendships are made, as well as some pretty awesome campaigns.

the family feel genuinely exists here at the tree.

I found somewhere, where I could grow a social team within an agency putting social first.
