Why join Velo?

We pride ourselves on having one of the most sizeable per head training budgets of any agencies.

  • We’re a leader in what we do; we create B2B marketing that our clients are proud of. Quality and impact done right, every time. That’s what you’ll be part of – making clients happy.
  • We’re small enough that everyone’s voice is heard, but big enough that you’ll work on lots of different projects – all with lots of support and lots of training available too.
  • We’ve got a varied and top-notch list of clients, so there’ll always be a dream account for you to work on.
  • We’re growing steadily and we want you to grow with us, that’s why we focus on helping our team progress their own careers.
  • We’re a team. It’s not just individuals who happen to work together, we actually all like each other.
  • We’re flexible and support home working or from our HQ based in central London. So whether it’s a craft ale or a kale juice you’re after, there’s a bar for that near us; or if you prefer to work from your bedroom, we’re cool with that too.

Our values

At Velo our company culture is based on ‘doing the right thing’, so together we defined our values as:

Conscientious

Every member of the team CARES about what they do, who they do it with and have the desire to do a GREAT job, every single time

Optimistic

Having a positive approach to a project, teammate or situation keeps morale buoyant and clients happy.

Appreciative

Teamwork is vital to what makes Velo such a great place to work. Whether that’s internally or externally, understanding what colleagues are going through, and supporting them however you can, is essential.

Proactive

Don’t just wait for things to happen around you. Whether it’s your own career, your client work or your teammates, think about what else you could do to drive it forward, how can you bring this project/your career/your teammate upwards. Lift the situation every time.

Inquisitive

Be curious. Have a hunger for more; more knowledge for your own self-development, more interest in the client’s goals, and a desire to get to know your client, the project and your teammates better.

Velo is a place where bright, conscientious and inquisitive people thrive and are appreciated.

If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to hear from you.

These are the roles we’re actively looking to add to the team right now:

Designers/Creative Team – All Roles

Is your typical ‘design day’ more like ‘groundhog day’?

At Velo no two days are the same. Working on a huge variety of B2B branding and marketing campaigns means every day is different. Under the stewardship of the Creative Director, the work is diverse, fast moving and engaging. You’ll be immersed ‘on the tools’ in various media from print, to websites and apps, videos, exhibition stands and everything in between.

Our creative team is the engine room of our business, producing fantastic looking projects that tell our clients’ stories. And they are diverse – across great B2B brands including Cisco, Halma, McGraw-Hill and Sage.

You could be part of our team, delivering campaigns that excite, dazzle and resonate. Growing fast and based in SE1, Velo is always on the lookout for creative people – including art directors, digital designers, print designers, artworkers, videographers, editors and photographers. Why not get in touch so you can start enjoying your Mondays again?

Your work will always be varied, while still having enough time to deliver high quality output. Talking of quality, Velo has been recognised for the client work we do time and again. The Drum ranks Velo in the top 5 London agencies, for our size, using client feedback from 50 B2B brands. Not only that, but this year’s B2B Marketing Agency Benchmarking Report lists us as #4 integrated London agency for our size.

At Velo we want you to grow with us, that’s why we focus on helping our team progress their own careers. We’re small enough that everyone’s voice is heard, but large enough that you’ll experience working on a varied mix of projects – all with tons of support and lots of training available too.

Being able to multi-task and work in a fast moving environment is key, so you're likely to have worked in a digital-led agency or had an extensive freelancing career.

We're always looking to add new talent – AT ALL LEVELS - into the team who can provide something new, or bolster the existing skills that we have. So if you know your way around Adobe Creative Cloud, produce high quality work, and are looking to produce projects that make you proud, then get in touch.
