Why would you want to come and work here anyway?
Well, you'll be working with a great team for a start. We're a small and friendly bunch, with ten members of staff, based in the heart of Stafford town centre. We're award winning as well, don't you know?
We've also got a distinctive set of values. We think they're cool, especially the way we've made 'dogwithabone' into one word.
We're pretty committed to being a good employer - actually, one of our goals is to be the best PR agency to work for in the UK.
Well, the benefits aren't bad at all
A personalised benefits package allows individuals to choose between receiving more holidays, duvet days, trade or professional body membership, book, technology or gig vouchers or almost anything with measurable value.
Staff can also win extra holidays or 'top up' their flexible benefeits through a monthly coverage competition called Getting Ink.
Staff also benefit from a £200 annual bursary, to spend on non-vocational training – like cooking, foreign languages, martial arts or just gym membership.
Finally, each member of Stone Junction’s team accrues one hour per month of paid time that they can spend on charity work of their choosing.
Our three things and go home Friday project allows you to, well, do three things and go home on every fourth Friday. The clue is in the name really.
Flexible working allows us to come and go at any time before nine and after four, providing we fit our core working hours in. And to top it all off, everybody gets a Surface Pro and all the usual stuff PR companies do, like free fruit in the office and compulsory hipster clothing. Maybe not the last bit.
Stone Junction has a fast-track internal training programme which contains 26 modules. Normally, we find that even account managers and other senior level staff benefit from at least some of the modules, demonstrating the learning opportunities we provide.
We're active participants in the CIPR's continuous professional development scheme. In fact, we're so good that in 2014 The Sentinel newspaper shortlisted us for its Training Excellence award. We were also highly commended by the National Apprenticehips Service for our PRCA apprenticeship scheme.
