It doesn’t seem that long ago that Stand Agency was celebrating our third anniversary and third consecutive year of growth. We’ve started our fourth year off with a bang, hiring three new members to our brilliant team. The latest additions to Stand Agency are Nina Zamo, Veronica Chu and Holly Ellis.

Earlier this week the Russian government launched its selfie safety campaign, aiming to get the public thinking more about their life and less about the social likes their snap might garner.
Hilariously, this campaign was paired with an impressive array of stick-figure warnings of when not to snap a selfie – in front of a train, hanging off the side of a building or with a mountain lion… To name a few.
Last month, Stand Agency and a handful of respected national newspaper reporters embarked on a press trip to Nice in France for our client, foreign exchange specialist moneycorp.
Property and personal finance reporters from publications such as The Daily Mail and The Daily Telegraph joined us on the flight to the Cote d’Azur, looking to find out how Brits could make the most of the strong pound/ euro exchange rate and snap-up a dream French property.
When working in the communications industry, you’re often asked the same question – ‘in-house or agency?’, and for many the answer will be a no-brainer.
But while both parties will defend their camps, they may be secretly curious as to whether they are missing something on the other side, and if the grass could be greener. Some will jump ship, while others will remain strong and avoid moving too far out of their comfort zone. Read more “But is the grass really always greener?”

We’re now on the hunt for an ambitious and energetic Account Director to join our talented, hardworking and friendly team.
We’re looking for an ambitious candidate who wants to make their mark in an exciting small agency. The ideal candidate will have financial B2C and B2B PR experience and outstanding national media relations skills as well as contacts in the business / finance sectors.
Here at Stand Agency, we like to do things differently, and as our name suggests, we’re certainly not afraid to stand out from the crowd.
We get the best results by finding a strategy that works, even if that means defying ‘normal conventions.’ We know what we want and we aren’t afraid to challenge the norms to achieve it.
Working with clients that are challengers in their industry and who contest the norm to make a difference is one of our passions and we love getting their voices heard.
We’re always on the look out for fantastic people to join our growing team.
We offer a number of paid internship opportunities each year, and for the right candidate this could lead on to a permanent position. Alongside our intern programme, we also offer shorter work experience placements.
