Culture and Benefits

weareseventeen see the working day as an enabler of people’s lives outside work, rather than the other way round. A 4.5-day work week with a 1pm Friday finish every week of the year is a practical example of this.

Project expectations are managed to ensure no one works outside office hours, with every team member having the chance to agree on reasonable goals for every project – as well as deciding which projects to take on or pass.

Management keeps a keen eye on the wellbeing of the team; as well as being on hand to offer counsel, all team members have a wellbeing plan in place, which provides external mental health support when needed.

The friendly team are always ready to welcome new team members

Entry-Level Opportunities

weareseventeen actively create junior positions, with many of the company’s previous interns having moved up into full-time positions. They also encourage less experienced people to apply for roles – valuing character and potential over proven ability.

In addition to an internship each year, the company offers work experience for younger people; providing a glimpse into the possible careers open to them, demystifying what life is like in a creative company and offering to learn from senior team members.

The directors also give talks at creative universities and are actively involved in mentoring programmes.
