DO YOU LOVE MAKING THE COMPLEX SIMPLE?

We use design and technology to create intelligent and beautifully crafted experiences that simplify the complex and make a meaningful difference. It all starts with our people.

A WORKPLACE FOR EVERYONE

At Rufus Leonard, we’re hungry for knowledge, lionhearted with our ideas, and down-to-earth with our approach. Living and breathing these values starts with a fair and inclusive environment for everyone.

So right from the beginning, we’ll treat you with fairness and respect. You can expect impartial recruitment practices like blind CVs, diversity monitoring, and non-bias trained interviewers. We strive to embed true diversity and inclusion into the fabric of our culture. That means embracing the rich diversity of people’s backgrounds and circumstances and taking positive action to promote diversity across the agency.

Plus, to make sure we have everyone’s backs, we monitor our gender pay gap and are taking active steps to close it.

And to keep on improving, we hold the annual BIG Rufus Review – an opportunity for everyone to tell us what they think, so we can build a better Rufus the following year.

BENEFITS THAT BENEFIT ALL

Everyone loves perks (and we’ve got plenty of those), but we structure our benefits around your physical, mental, financial and social wellbeing to make sure you can always bring your best self to work and get the most out of your time at Rufus.

To your health!

We provide full health insurance from Vitality, discounted gym memberships, and cycle-to-work schemes, so you get a helping hand looking after yourself. Oh, and we keep our office fully stocked with fresh fruit (and ice creams in the Summer).

Work-life balance

We fully embrace hybrid working and accommodate flexible working for anyone who needs it. Holidays start at 25 days per year, and we also give you a few extra off for the Christmas period AND your birthday. When it comes to building a family – whatever family means to you – we have policies in place to support your maternity/paternity/shared/surrogacy journey, and we’re fully supportive of carers. Plus, who could forget your furry family? We’re a dog-friendly agency, so you can also bring your pooch to work

Power to progress

Having ambition is important, and we want to fuel yours. Each member of the team gets their own personal development budget to support and reach their goals. And the best bit? Those goals are driven by you, so you can shape your career and build skills based on the things that inspire you and where you want to go.

Building community

To nurture an inclusive culture with purpose and human connection, we put social community at the heart of our agency. And while that means plenty of get-togethers and team bonding, our people have access to cross-team mentoring, wellbeing support and volunteer days. We also recognise the need to support those outside of Rufus – every month we donate to charities and encourage employee involvement in that fundraising.

Personal connection
Recognition & respect

It’s important that our people are recognised – from the work they do to the experiences they bring to the table. As well as our employee of the month celebration and annual Red Lion awards, we hold our RESPECT week. Every year we focus on a different theme to reflect on broader diversity, equality and inclusion issues, share experiences, and inspire future change so that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.

Junior Project Manager

“Every day I have the pleasure of working on exciting and meaningful projects which have challenged me and sharpened my skills."
"From the beginning of my journey I’ve been supported by an incredibly talented team that empowers me to grow, and have worked with people from across the agency who all embody core Rufus values; being lionhearted, hungry, and down to earth. It’s rare to work with a company so filled with kind-hearted people and inspiring projects…”

Jumpstarting the futureof our industry

Rufus’ RAW initiative helps people from any background get a fair look into an industry that can often be a closed door. We know it’s competitive out there, so we’re offering opportunities that aren’t about who you know or what you know, but who you want to become. We’re also a London Living Wage employer – which means we pay the real living wage to all directly-paid Rufus employees. That includes our RAW Academy interns.

Our paid internship runs across all disciplines to give a taste of what a career in the industry is like. You won’t be making coffees and scrolling the internet, we’ll give you a structured brief and plenty of mentorship and support from our team, so you leave us with lots of new knowledge and a great piece for your portfolio.

We also get involved in portfolio reviews, 1-to-1 mentoring, student lectures, workshops and more with our range of RAW partners to help those starting out get a good head start.

That’s what RAW is all about. Giving anyone who wants to crack the creative industry the tools they need to succeed. Get involved

DREW CASTLE

SENIOR STRATEGIST, RUFUS LEONARD

From day one of Rufus' RAW initiative, I was given autonomy, responsibility, and opportunities to learn on-the-job. Which was invaluable for my growth as a strategist.
"I was lucky enough to work with Rufus’ excellent practitioners in a number of disciplines, broadening my initial skillset by learning about topics ranging from technology infrastructure, to detailed UX, or app development. As a RAW intern, Rufus also gave me all the support I needed; from heads of department helping with my long-term career ambitions and training; to mentorship from senior members of the team and daily support from my peers. Rufus’ compassionate, collaborative and family-feel environment gave me a fantastic foundation to grow. I started as an intern in the Rufus RAW Academy and have progressed to a Senior Strategist – and that kind of growth was not only supported, but strongly encouraged.”
