Our different ideas, our different perspectives and our respect for one another enables us to be innovative, creative and build a sense of belonging that actively encourages our people to add to our culture. We want everyone to feel that Jungle Creations is a place where they belong and that is the reason why we look for the cultural add, not the cultural fit.
‘We exist to create ideas that get people to thrive online and in the real world’

Whether in a small or large capacity, every one of our departments work in collaboration with each other. Encouraging this total collaboration means our people can team up with ease, and create the perfect environment for idea sharing, creative thinking, and working closely with clients and partners alike.
In a business and world that is forever changing, we pride ourselves on how agile and adaptable we are. Striving to experiment, take risks and be bold, Jungle celebrates how quickly its people can innovate and move with the times, ensuring we are at the forefront of change and the best in industry.
We champion our people, their ideas, and their differences. Our people respect one another and the things that make each of us unique. We aim to support all voices internally and reflect this in the work we do. We actively encourage our people to add to our culture and want everyone at Jungle to feel that they belong.
We have carried out a full risk assessment and have moved to a permanent hybrid working system that sees staff split their time between the office and home (government guidelines allowing). Each team differs in terms of their in-office expectations so feel free to discuss this during your interview process.
