Working with us

Mackman is a busy boutique agency with the unifying strapline 'together we grow'. It’s been with us since the day we launched and reflects the relationships that our agency has with clients, suppliers, colleagues and the wider community. It is the blend of our talented team combined with a ‘can do’ attitude and thirst for best practice that is at the heart of our success.

Social time

We have regular staff socials, at least we used to before Covid which has made that harder. There is a summer social which normally includes freshly made pizza, salads and a BBQ in our garden. At Christmas we naturally all go out together and sometimes drink and eat too much. There are other excuses to go out together like gigs or celebrations. 

Balancing work with time for you

Everyone gets an extra day off on their birthday courtesy of the business. We expect everyone to work hard but don’t expect anyone to work unreasonable hours. We also don’t contact staff outside of work hours. We have people working from home and in the office and take a flexible approach to individual needs.

We are a modern family orientated firm that looks after our employees and are respectful. It’s about how we treat people not just the benefits, but here are some of them:

  • Flexible working
  • Regular team building and staff socials
  • Time out of the office to give blood
  • Generous holiday allowance - 20 days off plus 8 bank holidays
