Yes, that’s us on the big screen – all grown up!
Can you believe we recently turned 14? The time has flown by, but what an incredible journey it’s been for us over the years. From starting out in a small office with a tiny team, to now having a gang of 24 talented individuals in our much-loved Baltic Triangle HQ.
It’s great to see how far we have come as an Agency, now working with clients not only in the North West but across the UK and internationally. The past 18 months have been brilliant for Agent. We’ve worked on some incredibly exciting projects and expanded into new sectors, taking us to brand new places and spaces.
Our team has created some truly brilliant pieces of work, which you can see a sneak peak of in our latest showreel!
We’re also proud to have maintained our culture throughout the years, especially in recent times since the team have been working from home. It’s important that we are constantly connected to each other to keep doing what we do best and keep up a health balance of work and play!
Agent Academy is also going from strength to strength, having recently completed its first ever virtual graduation, celebrating its sixth birthday and launching the first ever digital programme, Academy 12, to adapt to the current situation and ensure our young people can still benefit from the incredible opportunities the Academy provides.
We have also just launched ‘Switch’, a brand new EdTech platform which is a collaboration between Agent Academy and Agent. This comes after Agent Academy was recently awarded funding by innovation foundation, Nesta and the Department for Education, to expand its existing offer nationally, taking everything we’ve learnt in the six years since the Academy’s inception, to support people whose jobs are at risk across the UK. It’s a really exciting project and has landed at the perfect time, given that so many people are having to move everything they do online, whether it’s work, training or education.
As a lot of you may know, we love birthdays at Agent. This usually includes presents, a medley of Agent’s singing to Stevie Wonder ‘Happy Birthday’ and of course, cake, and lots of it!
We’re very good at celebrating our Agent’s birthdays, but how do we celebrate our own? Well, this year we thought we would really go for it. Agent is a team that you can rely on and. Since we launched in 2006, we’ve always stood by our colleagues, friends and clients.
So, we got in touch with our friends at Ocean Outdoor UK and Open Media who showcase our birthday celebrations on their screens. Both of these organisations have supported us a lot over the years and we’re incredibly grateful to them. To see our faces on the Lime Street screen was a very proud moment!
We’ve grown a lot as an Agency and had a lot of successes over the past 14 years, but we couldn’t have done any of it without our incredible team. In celebration of our team spirit, we asked all 24 Agents to share what #TeamAgent means to them. We’ve listed all of the #TeamAgent messages below, for your viewing pleasure!
