We are Giants

At Sleeping Giant Media, we’re not interested in old hat SEO, we’re not looking for guess work paid-search, and we don’t want standard social. We’re bigger than that. We are GIANTS.

You may not be an expert – but that’s fine. Because we are! From the moment you step through the doors, you will be in the company of some of the country’s foremost authorities in digital marketing, and will undergo an intensive course of training to get you up to speed. We don’t play about, here; we make sure all our GIANTS are more than just a namesake.

If this seems daunting, you’d be right! But we’re after those who relish a challenge, those who want to push the boundaries of what we know about digital marketing, and those who want to give the best to receive the best.

In return, we treat our GIANTS as just that.

Role Package

Our Giant are given above and beyond what you could expect from an office job. Yes, we have the free drinks and snacks, and you’ll learn more about our office below, but it’s more than that.

We support our GIANTS through a flexible working policy (work when or where you want), healthcare cash plan, through getting your birthday off to celebrate, through monthly team lunches, summer parties, Christmas parties, emotional, mental, and physical health support, Childcare Vouchers, Friday Beer-O’Clock, 10 paid sick days, weekly training, and through our popular Unlimited Holiday policy (yes, really). And you’ll even be enrolled on our profit share scheme because when we succeed, that’s because of our team.

We know life is about balance, and we want to provide that.

Career Progression

We’ve already mentioned the intensive training you undergo when you first join, but it doesn’t stop there. We have four training sessions per week, we send people to national and international conferences, we provide materials to improve knowledge, and we make sure our people are certified (while hopefully not making them certifiable!).

We ask our Giants to be the best version of themselves; not only for the business, but for our clients, whose businesses rely on our outstanding work.

If you’re willing to put in the effort, we’ll be there to reward it through career progression.

The Team

Lastly, and most importantly, the people you work with are amongst the best sort of people you will meet.

Dedicated, passionate, supportive; our GIANTS understand everyone is here for the same purpose, and will help you throughout your time with us. Together, we share celebrations, successes, and wins. Together we learn from our losses, pick ourselves up, and move forward stronger.

We are a team, and together we are awesome.

We’ve won multiple Employer of the Year awards for the opportunties and work place culture we provide for our team – so let that be testament to us knowing our stuff!

Our Home

On the outskirts of the town centre, you wouldn’t expect an unassuming concrete building to house the Giants that it does. And yet, here we are in the penthouse of the Civic Centre, overlooking the English Channel.

Between these walls, we have a secret room, a fully stocked bar, a cupboard loaded with snacks, fridges loaded with drinks, games consoles, numerous breakout areas, offices covered in grass, nerf guns, a dartboard, scooters, a lego logo wall, and (probably most famously) a ball pit.

Plus, we’re only a short walk from the beach which is AWESOME in the summer!

So, why Sleeping Giant Media?

Why consider Sleeping Giant Media? To Awaken Potential… Yours, our Giants and our Clients! That’s our mission.

Would our ambition to develop an incredible working environment committed to Health & Wellbeing, Diversity, Flexibility, Inclusivity, Excellence, Community and Sustainability inspire you?

And finally, would you love to be part of the team of Giants that achieves our Times Top 100 Employer status, an industry-leading Employee Net Promoter Score, our Carbon Negative Commitment and an 85 Net promoter Score!!??

If the answer is yes, and you feel that this specific role is right for you, then we want to talk.

You should expect all the usual benefits, unlimited holiday, profit share, health plans, cash plans, paid sick, flexible working etc… 

But most importantly, the flexibility, support and encouragement to develop your own career in line with our mission to Awaken Potential.
