    Despite being born & bred in the South East, the majority of people I first meet don’t believe that I’m British… A colleague though I was Australian for 3months!

    Describe your team in three words?

    Smart, Fun and Hardworking.

    What attracted you to Vibrant and what keeps you here?

    Back in 2005, the digital industry was still in its infancy and companies like Vibrant were paving the way to what is Digital Advertising today – a vibrant an exciting place disrupting some of the most established business sectors such as TV and print. I couldn’t have chosen a better place than Vibrant to start off my career in this industry.

    What daily tasks do you enjoy most and why?

    My daily tasks include supporting our International publishers with any commercial and technical requests they may have, and making sure that we have enough inventory to deliver our International campaigns. Apart from playing table tennis, the most rewarding thing for me is to sign the next big publisher who has great, engaging content for our advertisers!

    I did my military service in France when it was compulsory and during that year, I was detached to the Central African Republic for four months and I had the time of my life! Looking back, I see it as my gap year.

    Describe your team in three words?

    Fun, ambitious gossips

    What attracted you to Vibrant and what keeps you here?

    I had just finished University and had no idea what I wanted to do.  I spent a year in America as an au pair and came across Vibrant through a friend, a week later I was flying to London to start my first “real job” out of Uni.  My first day happened to be the Monday after the company had their 15-year anniversary trip to Ibiza.  Hearing the holiday stories and having everyone be so welcoming made my first-day nerves disappear.  It’s definitely the people that make Vibrant.

    What makes someone Vibrant?

    Someone who “works hard, plays hard”.  Someone who is driven and motivated but can also have a laugh.

    What daily tasks do you enjoy most and why?

    I enjoy going out to present to agencies and building relationships with the teams.  I think it’s important for agencies to know who their main point of contact is and to build a strong relationship with contacts so they feel comfortable to reach out.

    More importantly, what’s a typical Vibrant night out?

    They always end up being a lot of fun! The famous last words… “I’m only staying for one drink” usually ends up with a McDonald’s and a late night taxi ride home

    Describe your team in three words?

    Dedicated, harmless reprobates

    What attracted you to Vibrant and what keeps you here?

    I had just spent 6 months doing a marketing internship when I bumped into a friend’s brother on the tube, we got talking and he said there was a job going at his company called Vibrant. A week later I had my first interview and didn’t want to work anywhere else after that.

    The “work hard, play hard” mantra is definitely true here and all the people I’ve worked with have been great. I always look forward to going in to work and it’s given me so many unbelievable opportunities.

    What makes someone Vibrant?

    Someone who knows how to work hard and have a laugh at the same time. Someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously but knows what they’re doing and gets it done.

    What daily tasks do you enjoy most and why?

    Over the time I’ve been here, the industry has got ever more competitive, with more and more companies fighting for business. I love an underdog (I support Southend so I’m used to it) and I think the challenge of maintaining relationships and activity, persuading people to try something new or different, getting on plans and disrupting all the “big” players is what I enjoy.

    More importantly, what’s a typical Vibrant night out?

    They get out of hand very easily and very quickly for absolutely no reason – I don’t understand why but I guess it’s because we’re all enjoying ourselves.

    My name is R Kelly…. Some people don’t notice it but it’s not really an association to brag about.

    I also (apparently) look like a little Peter Crouch?! He’s married to Abbey Clancy so I’m just about ok with that one.

    One word, Technology. Vibrant is all about using the best technology for the right projects, which is a fun and exciting attitude for a tech person because it means I am constantly learning and being challenged.

    What makes someone Vibrant?

    It’s someone that gives their best to their work every time, someone that doesn’t settle for just adequate but pushes to create the best piece of work they can.

    What daily tasks do you enjoy most and why?

    I enjoy bringing new innovative solutions to the whiteboard and watching them grow from an idea to a product.

    More importantly, what’s a typical Vibrant night out?

    Drinks, drinks, drinks 🙂

    Describe your team in three words?

    Ambitious, creative pranksters

    What attracted you to and what do you like most about Vibrant?

    Its passion and energy, as well as a real sense of opportunity, is what first attracted me to Vibrant. It has a strong belief in its employees, and I knew that I would be fully supported in achieving my ambitions here.

    There is so much to like about Vibrant, but I’d have to say the people, their enthusiasm and a true sense of job satisfaction is what makes it great! From the minute you walk through the door everyone makes you feel welcome, and there is always something going on to ensure that everyone interacts and has an excuse to work hard and have fun.

    What makes someone Vibrant?

    A hunger for success, and an appetite for innovation. That and the ability to have a laugh! Work-hard, play-hard is the ethos here.

    What daily tasks do you enjoy most and why?

    Creating exciting content. Having the opportunity to write, whether it be for internal collateral, decks or coming up with something innovative to say on our new website, is exciting, especially when it helps to position Vibrant strongly within a tough market.

    More importantly, what’s a typical Vibrant night out?

    Whether you just go out to grab a bite, or you’re dropping your best moves in one of the local bars, it’s safe to say it is always priceless and huge amount of fun.
