More than anything, we want to find out what’s holding you back from achieving your business goals. We’d like to fully understand your current marketing strategy, the challenges your company is facing, and most importantly, determine what we can do to help.
Breckenridge is a digital agency that is obsessed with growth — no matter whether it's for our clients, our company or our team members. We're always on the lookout for talented people with a hunger for learning and achievement, and a desire to do what's right for our clients. But thankfully, it's not all work, work, work. We take pride in having the wrongest sense of humour on the planet, and we do our best to laugh together and enjoy every moment we can.
Our values cut to the heart of who we are and how we work as a team. We respect each other's unique skills, but we know it takes all of us working together as a unit to deliver awesome results for our clients. That's the secret sauce that keeps us — and our clients — coming back for more.
As an agency, we've been around since the early 80s. Think shoulder pads, polo neck jumpers, big hair and even bigger glasses. A lot has changed since those heady days, but not our attitude towards our work. What drives us forward is still the sense of fulfilment and pride we get from doing what we do. We achieve this through a mixture of great teamwork, creativity and the diversity of our life experiences.
Some tasks need to be tackled in the right place. Brainstorming just isn't the same over video conferencing, but at the same time, wrestling with spreadsheet formulae is something to be done in peace and quiet. That's why we offer a flexible mixture of hybrid working.
Everyone faces different challenges. Sometimes, traditional working patterns may not be right for you. At Breckenridge, we're flexible enough to help you strike the right work-life balance for your needs while still allowing you to make progress towards your career goals.
Experience our office space in the heart of Southampton, which offers café-style tables for small groups and one-to-ones, sofas for informal chats, as well as a bookable meeting room and even a telephone box for video calls! And of course, we also have desks for solo work too.
We know that our employees are our greatest asset. That's why we encourage learning and development for all our team members. If it helps you further your career and grow, we're into it.
It's your birthday? Take the day off. Go out with friends. Stay home. Eat some cake. Run a half marathon. Go to a Star Trek convention. Ok, we can't tell you what to do, but we can give you the day off to do as you please!
Nobody wants to work on the days between Christmas and New Year's Day. Guess what? You get those days off, and it doesn't even come out of your annual leave allowance, so you can keep eating leftovers and re-watching Harry Potter movies until the New Year.
In today's remote working environment, it can mean we sometimes go weeks without seeing another team member IRL. That's why we believe it's more important than ever to get out and have fun together as often as we can.
There's no such thing as a strict dress code around here. Looking after the talent and happiness of our team is more important. Client meeting? Feel free to dress to impress. Zoom suit? What we can't see can't traumatise us!
It goes without saying that when you're in the office, an endless supply of good coffee or tea is non-negotiable. We'll make sure you get your brew. Word to the wise - our senior designer Diarmid makes a legendary cuppa!
Right from the start, I could see that the Breckenridge team was exactly where I wanted to be. The agency is nimble, and made up of individuals who are all specialists in their fields - making the working environment dynamic and engaging. Added to this, the culture, and belief in the importance of culture, positions Breckenridge among the top of its digital agency peers as a forward-thinking employer.
I feel very lucky to be working for a company that embodies a strong belief in personal and professional development, while still having a good work-life balance. With help from Breckenridge, I am now working towards a Level 6 Diploma in Professional Marketing through the Chartered Institute of Marketing. Being an employee at Breckenridge means being surrounded by people who make your job not feel like work, which I feel is something that you can never take for granted.
I've been with Breckenridge for over 15 years now and have witnessed a lot of change in that time, both in the needs of our clients and in the way that we have responded to those needs. Despite some obvious challenges, we have gone from strength to strength and I can honestly say that it's a delight to be able to work with such a knowledgeable, dedicated and above all, really great team of people.
Cover letters (or emails!) aren't essential, but they do give you an edge. Why? Because that's where you share your motivation for the role, your personaility and you get to tell us things that might not fit a CV format.
Every job will have essential skills, and these will be on the job ads, but 'soft' skills are core to every role at Breckenridge because we deliver for our clients by working together!
Yes, but only after you have accepted a job. We won't approach your referees without your say-so.
Yes, we respond to every applicant. (It's how we'd like to be treated.)

Standardised testing. To keep us real about hiring for capability, we use an online platform to give candidates for each job the same test. Tests are usually 20-30 minutes long, and we share the results with you afterward.
2nd interview. This is usually with the hiring manager and with a member of the People team. Here we look at your test results, and deep dive into the additional skills for the role, including those crucial soft skills.
Decision-time and candidate feedback.
We care about our team's work-life balance so we prefer to interview within our usual office hours (9am-5.30pm). However, we know that it can be tough to make this happen if you're already employed, so we will do our best to find a time that works for you. After all, we want to see you at your best, not in a hot mess. :)
We expect you to have done your homework on us, and checked out our website at least. If you want to go the extra mile, here are 2 tips:
