The beginning of August marked my third month at Dynamo. Whilst sitting in a quirky pub with oil paintings of dogs dressed up as Victorian gentlemen for my three-month review, I realised I can honestly say this has been the most enjoyable three months I have ever had in a job.
My application process was unlike any other, as Dynamo’s blind recruitment eliminates everything that can cause bias such as name and gender, taking into account only experience. This process demonstrates so much of what the agency is about, eliminating discrimination whether that be your age or education levels. On just that process alone, I was eager to learn more about Dynamo, their work ethic, what the team was like and if I would enjoy working there. I was not disappointed.
The team are like a family, everyone supporting one another, celebrating success and helping each other work towards goals. Being a Bambi in the PR world, this was amazing! Dynamo is giving me the support and guidance that I need to progress and learn, from creative jam sessions and mentors to in-house and external training. This is a great work environment despite your level, whether you’re a Junior Account Executive or an Account Director, you can always adapt, learn and are given the ability to be the best work you!
One thing I couldn’t get my head around though, were the benefits. How many people do you know that have unlimited holidays in their contract? Or their company taking them away on a secret holiday? But despite the Friday office treats and karaoke nights, what I appreciate the most is being able to enjoy what I am doing, as well as enjoy the people I work with.
