People

We are an agency on a mission. It defines us. It's our ultimate purpose and unshakable goal.

For our people that means a challenging and innovative environment, where personal and collective growth are supported but also demanded, where we celebrate our success, reward performance and then re-invent our approach.

We're a people business, with truly great people providing innovative, high quality, client centric solutions that deliver on our client's needs in digital – wherever that may take us.

Working at Essence is incredibly rewarding - the work's challenging and the environment's great fun due to the people you get to work with.

Karlina Gravitis, Essence

    I have a lot of nicknames, from Dora the Explorer to Doraemon. Basically anything that starts with 'Dor'. And I love giraffes!
