Our Values and Behaviours: EPICC

McCann Central is its people. You help make the agency an enjoyable and successful place to work. Like our people, the agency has distinct characteristics, a personality and values that set us apart in our industry. Our values are explained below in terms of what we stand for as an agency and what we look for from your behaviour when you turn up to work each day.

  • Entrepreneurial – having a proactive mind-set in a rapidly changing business, taking calculated risks to think differently, having a can-do approach to everything we do.
  • Persistence – never give up, have determination and an approach that says ‘I always find a way’.
  • Integrity – thinking ‘if this was my business and money, what would I do?’, being open and honest, telling the truth even when it’s hard, doing the right thing.
  • Collaboration – going out of your way to help others, with everyone involved a better outcome will unfold, team spirit.
  • Curiosity – asking questions and looking for what others don’t see is the cornerstone of a curious mind and the DNA of our success.

We expect our employees to take time to understand, respect and support our core values, using them as guiding principles for how we do things at McCann Central.


In addition to a competitive salary we are committed to creating a brilliant environment for all our people. This includes benefits such as 28 days holiday, plus the opportunity to buy more holiday, enhanced pension contributions, life assurance and much more.

A culture of learning and development is also central to our ethos, so you’ll have access to industry leading training and development programmes, plus you’ll get to work closely with the world’s biggest media partners to access exclusive features and products.

Most importantly, you’ll be part of a fun and collaborative team and you’ll work in an environment where you are supported, pushed and developed.

Our commitment to equal opportunities.

For us, diversity is a business imperative – one that must be embedded into every aspect of how we operate in order to drive success. Simply put, we believe an encouraging and inclusive environment makes sound business sense.

As a globally integrated community that influences and shapes culture, it’s vital that the talent mix in our agencies encompass all dimensions of diversity, and that we demand the same of the people we work with.

Conscious inclusion encompasses social, cultural and cognitive differences and cultivates an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. It is the integration of this philosophy that allows us to create meaningful experiences for our employees, drive better business practices with our vendors and clients, and ultimately lead with purpose.
