Havas London is a modern advertising agency. In the last 3 years, we have emerged as one of London's fastest-growing agencies - both financially and reputationally. 2017 saw us win more accounts than any other agency in the country, and ended with us being named an Agency of the Year runner-up by Campaign. Our mission is to make a meaningful difference to the businesses, brands and lives of the people we work with. At the heart of this statement is a commitment to delivering brilliant service - as well as brilliant work - to our clients; and a commitment to the wellbeing of the people we work with - both within Havas London - and beyond. As the only major UK advertising agency to share a single building with every other specialist business in its network, we are able to build bespoke, multi-discipline teams around our clients, whatever their business need. Crucially, these are not teams that are together on paper alone - but teams physically, culturally, logistically and financially aligned.
