How's the WK London strat vibe at the mo? Seen a lot of good strats leave and they just lost three

With all the redundancies and so on going on right now, why don't we set up a thread to drop all the job openings that pop up? Helping each other out and all that!

Many agencies not furloing and going for reduncies as bosses want to keep securing the end of year bonuses. Heard this is the case across WPP. Thought it would be worth sharing

I’ve just been told our 10% pay cut will be in place until the “end of the year at the latest”. WTF. I earn ya average account director salary 😐

Recently relocated to London pre-Covid. As things begin to slowly open back up, any good resources for finding FT agency work for an established creative? Had a couple of recruiter meetings before lock-down but all of those leads have gone cold.

Hi all, I’m looking for a digital/ media planner to join my team on the client side. We’re just starting our 1st party data activation journey so would love someone to join that has a bit of experience in that space. Would have to be in the office 2-3 days which is based in Waltham, but otherwise flexible. If you know anyone looking and would be open to chat. Please shout!

Don't believe the hype if you hear senior managers selflessly taking pay cuts during lockdown. There's a very good chance they are also taking a bonus too

Have any London agencies communicated a come-back-to-work plan? Staggered starting hours, alternating days, etc...

Is anyone else considering roles with companies outside of london once this is over, seeing how remote working is so well established now?

Any other Londoners currently furloughed - are your agencies offering more than the maximum £2,500 from the gov’t? I’ve heard of companies “topping up” to give 80% salary. Is that really happening?
