So, why become an Owlie? If you relish in finding creative solutions to complex problems, and working together with brands to produce memorable experiences that genuinely address their business challenges, this could just be the home for you. 

 

Aside from the great work we produce, our people are what make Owl Live an amazing place to be. We’re an innovative, considerate, passionate and adaptable bunch, who genuinely care about what we do, as well as each other. We celebrate the highs, and we learn from the lows, and we’re led by our values of Collaboration, Trust, and Consideration. And by the way, we don’t just slap these on a wall in the office, we live and breathe them in all that we do.  

 

What’s in it for you? Here’s just a few of our favourite perks of being an Owlie…

 

The Usual Stuff

Competitive salary, pension, 20 holidays per year (plus bank holidays and Christmas/NY shut down), plus a nice shiny Macbook and Iphone 

 

Flexible Working 

Forget WFH or WFO, we like to promote WFW – short for work from wherever you like. We’re happy with you working from one of our office hubs, from home, or a mix of the two, providing it works for you, your role and your team. All we ask is that you join us once a month in our Liverpool head office for some much needed human connection and face-time with your colleagues. 

 

Health and Wellbeing  

Mental health awareness training for everyone, and regular sessions covering everything from stress management to financial health plus a cycle to work scheme. 

 

Owlie Appreciation

We love to celebrate you and say thank you when you do great things. We have Owlie of the Month, Owlie of Year, regular High Fives and a team called the Joy Division who are dedicated to putting a smile on your face.
