Describe your office
Fashionable attic space in London's West End plays host to the Eulogy! team. Our branded offices provide comfortable workspace for some of PR's most creative minds. Sofa rooms and snugs for creativity, boardrooms for strategising, as well as a bar and kitchen mean the team is well served. The Eulogy! flag takes pride of place in the open-plan office, where our MD sits alongside the team.
Fresh flowers adorn reception. We have a sound system that plays staff-generated playlists, TVs and wireless technology for seamless in-office networking. A daily delivery of fresh fruit and drinks that keeps the team happy, and also a recycling scheme keeping the office green and clean.

Staff training and appraisal programme:
The Eulogy! Academy is our internal and external training scheme. It includes one-to-one coaching, group training sessions and access to an independent HR consultant. We have Learn and Burns - seminars with industry professionals - and 'Down at the Social', our digital integration initiative, which offers a rolling schedule of workshops to share and improve digital knowledge within the agency.
How do you provide a good work/life balance for staff?
We believe in working hard at Eulogy! You can't come through the door without picking up on that. But we also believe in playing hard. Actually, we believe in playing full stop. So we make sure there's room in our team's busy social calendar for away days, time off (a generous 29 days annual leave) and our infamous Christmas party (previous locations include New York, Dublin, Paris, Stockholm, Budapest, Scotland, Jersey and Sandwich in Kent!)
Our team don't clock watch – we watch the clock for them. If they're here too early or staying too late we interfere and do all we can to support them through the busy times. And we don't expect staff to be on call for clients 24/7. We have allocated senior team members to support clients out of hours if and when required.
Describe your internships policy:
We run a rolling work experience scheme throughout the year. Technically 52 are available but people often stay longer than one week. Currently we are full until December 2011. We ensure all work experience people receive a full induction, have an agency buddy and a busy workload of client and agency tasks to keep them keen. We recognise the commitment and initiative someone is showing to our agency and industry by committing time to us, and cover their travel and out of pocket expenses.
Eulogy! recruited three people from the work experience programme in the last year. There is a trend for growing talent from the ground up; our MD began as an AE 10 years ago, and another divisional head began her career here eight years ago as an AE.
What staff say...
Eulogy!'s greatest asset is our team, so who better to tell you what makes our agency the best place to work:
"As a newbie, I love how quickly I was made to feel part of the team. There is a constant buzz and energy, we work with the radio on and there is a genuine lack of hierarchy. I think many agencies claim this but it's rare to find one that lives up to its word." Lucy M, senior account exec, 2 months
"We're an eclectic bunch of people with varying backgrounds, however, what brings us all together is the camaraderie and support for each other. This mix also means we're never short of a creative solution – it's what makes Eulogy! stand out from all other PR agencies." Sarah S, account manager, 1 year
"We have a really rubbish but brilliantly named football team, with our own purple kit. Our Spotify playlists are amazing. Oh, and the SODA STREAM." Andrew Bm, senior account exec, 2 years
"I've been at Eulogy! for almost 10 years, and I wouldn't have stayed that long if it wasn't a special place to work. We celebrate successes and commiserate the failures and always have plenty of fun in between. The best thing about working at Eulogy! is the way the senior team actively encourages everyone to follow their own interests, develop their own ideas and drive the agency's development in new and exciting ways." Phil B, senior account director, 10 years
