The Financial Times Best UK Workplaces for 2007 today announced that bigmouthmedia is one of the 50 best workplaces in the UK. The leading digital marketing agency is part of the GlobalMedia group, with over 200 staff and 11 offices globally.

Bigmouthmedia provides search marketing for leading brands such as Hilton Hotel Corporation, British Airways and Tesco. Founded 10 years ago, the company, now with 3 locations in the UK, as well as an office in the USA, was the only search agency and online media agency to make the Top 50.

Based on extensive research conducted by the Great Places to Work Institute, the awards rank the 50 best workplaces in the UK and the 100 best workplaces across all EU member states as nominated by company employees.

"If you want to work in search, this is the place to work as it is an excellent learning platform; we also have a work hard ethos in the office, but are rewarded with fantastic office parties. A definite work hard, party harder atmosphere!" said Simon Heyes of the bigmouth team.

Experiencing recent rapid growth and on a widespread global recruitment drive, it is important employees are still treated to the intimate and relaxed small company feeling whilst receiving attractive big company benefits such as training and development and opportunity for international travel.

Speaking after the announcement, MD Lyndsay Menzies said "We are delighted to be placed in the UK Top 50. We have an amazing team – we are proud of them and they feel proud to be known as bigmouthers." She added, "There is no doubt that having happy and enthusiastic employees is the reason behind our success with industry awards."

This announcement comes during an exciting time for bigmouthmedia - the accolade comes shortly after a string of successes in other business and industry awards. These recent wins include the ‘Fast Growth Business Awards in the ‘Media Category’ the ‘Best Use of Search Optimisation/Search Marketing’ with client Superbreak – the online travel company – at the Technology for Marketing and Advertising Awards in February 2007 and the 'AXA Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year Award’ at the National Business Awards 2006.

Bigmouthmedia employs more than 100 people with offices across the UK, and USA, in addition to a further 7 offices and 100+ staff under the GlobalMedia brand across mainland Europe and Asia.
