Your reason for being here… 

Your purpose here at DRPG is to ensure our financial health is robust and stable. Supporting the Head of Finance, you’ll be a whiz at all things financey (technical

You’re driven by wanting things to operate incredibly smoothly, so therefore have no problems speaking up and suggesting new ways of doing things. You pre-empt the ever-changing needs of the business and offer solutions to any challenge that comes your way.

We’re one of the most unexpectedly all-round capable communications agencies that’s been on the go for years – ever since our head honcho set up shop in a shed back in 1980, in fact. Since then, we’ve made it our mission to make anything possible for our many and varied clients, putting our creative flair into delivering strategic communication campaigns, digital solutions, film and videos, events, exhibitions, and a whole lot more in between. We’ve grown a lot, but we’ve kept everything that made us great, back from the very day we first started out. Our global HQ and largest studios are smack bang in the middle of the UK and well worth a visit to see for yourself!
