Inside the Company

Founded in 2010 and starting out in a small studio space, Animade is now celebrating its tenth anniversary. It revealed a bold rebrand in 2020, representing the personality and culture of the company and its ‘Animaders’.

Animade's team is growing, with roles spanning from directors, producers and creatives to account managers, marketing and HR professionals.

Mission and Values

Passion and curiosity are the founding values at Animade, and the creative community is supported through openness, honesty and friendliness.

The team are encouraged to explore new ways of doing things through play. In addition to client projects, time for play gives creatives space to learn, explore and, most importantly, have fun.

Innovation plays a big part in the company culture –as it does across the industry as a whole. This is something the team take time to remind themselves of, as they keep driving their craft forward.

Culture and Benefits

Animade puts its people first, prioritising the working culture to ensure that its core values are instilled in the day-to-day. This includes protecting a healthy work-life balance, by accommodating people’s different needs through flexible working and by avoiding overtime wherever possible.

The team’s dedicated ‘culture captains’ plan events that range from quizzes to film nights, book clubs and summer fun days. Plus, each team member is assigned a budget that they can invest in their wellbeing, learning and development.

Entry-Level Opportunities

The Animade team are passionate about providing opportunities to aspiring creatives. They often collaborate with universities and share knowledge on all things animation, and also offer internships – with many interns progressing to join the team (which is how some of the senior creatives began their own journeys).

New joiners are welcomed with a fun and informative onboarding presentation as part of the induction process, which is an opportunity to learn more about the company. They have 1:1s with all the team including senior leadership, and are also assigned an existing Animader as a ‘buddy’ to help guide them through their first weeks.

Animade is offering two positions in support of the Kickstart scheme, which connects talented young people with opportunities in the creative, cultural or tech sectors.
