All work is relationships. So we put being human at the top of our priorities.
We’re proud to boast a team of talented people and a community of great clients, suppliers and partners.
We’re united by our shared values all of which helping us support each other, deliver great work and create a culture where everyone feels connected and valued.
Read on to find out more about our values, the initiatives we are involved in and our community partnerships.
We put passion into everything we do. Tackling the challenge half-heartedly is not our thing.
In our business it’s always personal. We’re accountable for our own actions.
Being empowered to work smarter and think in different ways. We think on our feet.
We’re a team: you and us. We relish a relationship built on trust and mutual respect to get the best results for everyone.
It’s always right to do the right thing. Act with honesty and integrity.
We want to have a positive impact on the world around us and be a responsible business. One that meets the highest environmental, social and governance standards for our industry, and that continuously learns and improves as our business grows.
For us, profit is about living our values through this positive impact. It means supporting our team to grow, strengthening our business, and innovating to keep on top of industry trends for us and our clients.
Our shared values guide the work of everyone at AMBITIOUS, and the relationships with our community, suppliers, and clients. Here’s some of the initiatives we’re involved in:
We’re always looking to draw talent and reach a more diverse range of potential candidates. We invest in industry initiatives, platforms and campaigns including using the Taylor Bennett Foundation jobs board participating in the regional Strive Internship scheme.
We have declared our ambition to become net zero by 2030 through the Bristol One City Climate Change Ask. We are working to develop a plan for reducing our emissions, and will be sharing more about our journey via our blogs.
We take the opportunity to get involved in all that Bristol offers, from events and festivals to charitable causes. Each month, a member of the team selects a Bristol charity to which we make a company-funded donation. The AMBITIOUS Community Chest has supported Aidbox, Help the Homeless, Billy Chip and more.
Our team was responsible for bringing Social Media Week to Bristol. Designed to upskill and further the conversation on social media, marketing and technology – Social Media Week Bristol is the only UK city outside London to host, joining 25 cities worldwide in holding this global conference.
We have a longstanding friendship with Babbasa, a Bristol-based social enterprise that works with less advantaged young people to support their career development. This year, we will provide them with pro-bono PR support.
To support candidates from diverse backgrounds into PR, we regularly take part in careers programmes. These are with schools, colleges, and higher education institutions to discuss the ins and outs of the sector and the career opportunities available.
We are committed to the Good Business Charter’s criteria relating to tax, fair pay, employee conditions, ethical sourcing and to our clients. Our Client Charter sets out expectations and commitments for Team AMBITIOUS and our clients.
We are governed by the CIPR Code of Conduct. Through membership and leadership roles within Bristol Creative Industries and the CIPR, AMBITIOUS’ senior team have supported the growth of the local creative sector and wider industry standards.
As part of our commitments to our community and to reducing our environmental impact, we always seek to use local suppliers where possible. From team gifts to office supplies, we use small-scale local providers whenever we can.
We are proud to partner with fantastic local and national organisations that share our values and help us to make a positive impact.
