2015 further consolidated Zone’s position as one of the UK’s leading independent digital agencies. In 2014, Zone was a London-based agency with £10m revenues. By the end of 2015, they had moved into new premises at the heart of the King’s Cross development, having opened offices in Bristol and Cologne and grown revenues to more than £16.5m.
Their pitch success rate in 2015 was more than 70% and they secured engagements with the likes of Lloyds Banking Group and Stagecoach, as well as charity sector clients including British Red Cross, Girl Guiding and RSPB.
However, growth, innovation and pitch wins are only part of the story. Zone is also proud to be awarded a two-star ‘outstanding’ rating by the Sunday Times Best Companies survey. Any agency is only as good as its people so they launched MyZone Career – a massive commitment to learning and development for their team. Every employee has 5% of their billable time reserved for personal and professional development. Employees can choose from more than 80 individual courses – from an ‘MBA in a Day’ to an introduction to photography.
Every employee is given two volunteering days each annually. Their entry level programme is open to school-leavers and graduates alike, and they advertise as many roles as possible with the King’s Cross Partnership.
