What attracted me to the tree?

I’ve been passionate about getting into a career in digital media for as long as I can remember. When I was given the chance to join the tree as an apprentice, it couldn’t have been a more perfect opportunity. There’s a great vibe here and the team is so friendly, creative, and full of knowledge, making the agency a really great place to work, learn and grow.

My experience

I began my career as a Digital Marketing Apprentice, following the completion of my A-Levels at Sixth Form. Prior to joining the tree, I participated in in a summer programme to create campaigns for local businesses and managed my own blog discussing what’s going on in TV and Film.  During my apprenticeship, I was completely submerged in all social and digital media and got the opportunity to work across some really cool brands.

Now, as a Digital Account Exec, I work across multiple B2B and B2C accounts and am exposed to a broad range of services including social media, email marketing, CMS operation, web updates and have been involved in some pretty cool projects. It’s safe to say that I do a little bit of everything here.  

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 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.
