Who we are:

The IAB works in a very open and collaborative way. A team of c. 30, we have a company meeting to kick off the week, project teams composed of people from different departments, as well as a strong sense of team within each department. We encourage our people to be entrepreneurial and feel empowered to drive change and deliver new projects. We are not about working at your desk all day every day, our office and separate events space allows us to change the scenery and we encourage hot-desking and support flexible working.


Culture is very important to us, we work with the whole industry, an innovative, dynamic and fast moving sector so we want our people to add to the fabric of what we do and what we represent. We are a social and upbeat team with different expertise and interests (baking, cycling, eating burgers) and a great ability to pitch in and work together to deliver our big events and initiatives. Education is important so in addition to training we hold regular lunch and learn sessions, presentations for the team that help us all keep up to speed with developments across the industry. We celebrate success whether it’s the completion of a big project or something small but important. We have two orange slides in our office and a couple of hoverboards to keep us entertained.
