Break the rules and re-invent your 9-5
‘Work your way’ is an increasingly loud mantra that businesses need to listen to, explains CEO Victoria Fox.
“I started as a Graduate Trainee back in September 2015 with a 10-week induction scheme. Throughout my time here, I’ve worked on Boots, Ray-Ban, The Open University, Royal Academy and Body Shop.
At LIDA, you have brilliant opportunities to develop – like the comedy course which taught me how to use my personality to present in a unique and engaging way. I’ve since been promoted to Account Executive, then Account Manager.
Now I’m coming up to my 2-year anniversary, I’m taking on a much more strategic role. This has been an ambition of mine for a while. Now I’m making it happen.”
“In my Account Executive interview, I was asked “…and you definitely don’t want to be a copywriter?” to which I replied – in all truthfulness – ‘nope!’ But I soon realised that my favourite part of account handling was briefing teams and seeing their ideas come to life. And when writers admitted my copy platforms became their final work, I knew it was time for a change.
After one portfolio, two internal interviews and a lot of learning on the fly, I’m now working on conceptual and long copy for every account in the building. LIDA have also sponsored me through fantastic workshops, including the IDM Copywriting Masterclass and the DMA’s Futures Writers course.
I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to find my niche at LIDA, and I hope that my background in client services makes me a better creative.”
We’re looking for a creative thinker, but with a logical streak – someone who sees beyond the obvious and challenges convention. If that’s you, you could be the O2 Campaign Manager we seek. And like O2, we offer More for You. You’ll be responsible for ensuring that campaigns are project managed end to end and key KPIs are hit.

“There’s a such a great atmosphere and sense of fun that runs throughout the whole agency on a daily basis, and no one takes themselves too seriously.”
We work hard to make LIDA a place where people feel stimulated by the work, have great opportunities to progress, and feel valued on a professional level.
