3. Depop – Founders’ Pick
Pip, founder of The Dots, has recommended Depop a top company to work for this year!

With an ever growing status, expect to find great roles in everything from development to marketing. What’s more, Depop are helping influence the future of fashion and tech, to be more sustainable.
Extinction Rebellion – Charity Pick

2. Anyways Creative – Curator’s Pick
Valuing meaningful creativity and a sense of adventure in their work, Anyways really are a dream team. Whether they are creating content or building immersive experiences, we are always blown away by their projects! Highlights this year included their work for Adobe Create (making a fantastical interactive quiz for people to find their ‘Creative Type’), Sonos the Brilliant Sound Experience and campaign imagery for Ace & Tate A-Z of Optimism.
Once again, Tate takes home the trophy! The UK’s quadruplet of culture (Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Liverpool and St.Ives) is one of the UK’s biggest attractions, running tons of extra initiatives and programmes on top of the everyday, including Tate Collective, Routes in Network and Tate Lates. The Dots team are always astounded by Tate’s ability to connect and support local communities, as well as young people from different backgrounds, interested in the arts. So, that, in accumulation with their huge following and constant supply of exciting roles, Tate is our #1 for another year!
We hope that we’ve given you a heap of career inspiration. Simply follow those dream companies on The Dots, and we’ll keep you in the know throughout 2020 – that’s a promise!
