Business Director

Hello, we're Impero

We’re an independent, award-winning, design focused creative agency.

We work with high profile, global brands such as, The Glenlivet, Chivas, Corona, Stella Artois, Budweiser, NatureValley, Christian Aid, Estee Lauder, George @ Asda, Paco Rabanne and a bunch of others.

We’re pretty good at what we do. In 2018 we won five Agency of The Year(s) including The Drum DADI Agency of theYear. We were also shortlisted as Campaign Independent Agency of the Year. And, this year made it onto the CampaignMag 100 best places to work.

Next we have our sights set on a D&AD and/or Cannes Lion this year.

There’s about 50 of us (not including the dogs) — but that number grows all the time because we’re still young, ambitious and do great work.

We’re also 70% female with a 50/50 gender split on the senior team. We proudly have 100% pay parity, and it kind ofannoys us that we even have to mention that as something that’s unique within this industry.

We gladly do things differently. We‘re super ambitious, brutally honest and always deliver.

We don’t really like the ‘Old Guard’ of advertising. Working here is hell of a lot of fun.
