Your reason for being here...

Your purpose at DRPG is to consistently demonstrate from the get-go why we are the agency of choice when it comes to client’s choosing DRPG over and above any other agency in the entire world! 

The way you roll...

A self-motivated team player, your determination and high expectations of yourself and the work you produce is really something to be envied. You’re a cracking listener and an even better communicator, so clear directions are something you’re able to give others with ease. Even the most challenging situations are a breeze, and your multi-tasking and organisation skills could get you far on a talent show. 

You’re always questioning yourself and aiming for the best result, and this bleeds over to challenging others and briefs too. It’s clear you get the wider impact of your role and your actions on other individuals and projects; that’s why you’re always paying attention to those little details. This way, everything you do leads up to delivering the best results for our clients. We love your determination! 

Teamwork makes the dream work, and to help further this amazing team, you have a hunger for new skills and professional development that can’t be tamed. Our philosophy here at DRPG is ‘Anything’s Possible’, so you will need to be on board with this and going above and beyond. 

How you make it all possible...

  • Interpreting the client brief to ensure a suitable solution is proposed 
  • Working seamlessly with relevant departments to develop the perfect response in line with the brief 
  • Writing elements of the proposal relating to project management

  • Leading preparation for pitches, including presentation content and additional information 
  • Confidently presenting at client pitches

Get to know us...

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!  

Hang on there's more...

The role will be based primarily in Windsor, London or Hartlebury, but there will be times when you’ll need to work from our other offices and undertake other related commercial duties both in the UK and overseas. Flexibility is key!  

We’re a friendly team. We really, really welcome anyone who wants to become part of a brilliant company. If you’re passionate with a cracking drive to deliver on our ‘anything’s possible’ mindset, we’d love to hear from you!
