Behaviours required & Cogent Values:

APPROACHABLE. We are honest, open, ego-free, non-hierarchical and friendly (twats exit stage left).

PRAGMATIC. We are smart, balancing our IQ and EQ to make decisions without over complicating things, we solve problems in the moment, and keep things simple (rinse and repeat).

ZEALOUS. We are passionate about creativity, technology, actionable insights and effective delivery (radiators, not drains).

CONSIDERED. We think before we speak we substantiate our opinions with facts and examples, and are commercially savvy (cogent).
