Within the SMG business, there is true transparency when it comes to salaries. We have set bandings for everyone to view, to see their own salary progression and earning potential within the role they have. Our bandings are wide to allow for ample growth opportunities and to cater to people joining us from all different backgrounds and with varied levels of experience. We will always chat to you about what your expectations are and make sure no time is wasted.
At SMG we want our people to feel empowered to choose where they can work most effectively and create a healthy balance that works for them. We have no set rules or guidelines of how and when you should be in the office, each team decides what works best for them.
We've got offices in London, Manchester, Liverpool & Nottingham. Each job advert will say where the role is usually based, but we of course work flexibly!

We set actions with deadlines in place to be sure that we are holding ourselves accountable and walking the walk, not just talking the talk!
