General Application

At AKQA, we serve to lead. For us leadership is a responsibility. It is about setting an example with respect for all at its core. It is the duty to be both proficient at our roles and to seek self-improvement.

In these difficult times, we still desire to connect with others.  We understand there may not be a current opportunity listed that you’d like to explore. However, we would like to make the connection if you’re interested in joining us in the future.  People with the following qualities are encouraged to connect with us.



We look for people that aim high, for whom ‘the impossible’ has a special attraction. People that are open to new ideas, new experiences and exploring alternative avenues for solving a problem or unlocking an opportunity. Our people aspire for a wealth of adventures in their journey with AKQA so they keep challenging themselves and our teams to unleash the potential.



We look for people that, with a leap of the imagination, develop creative and effective solutions. People that have limitless curiosity and are always looking at ways to re-invent approaches, products and services.



We look for people that have a contagious passion and genuine enthusiasm about their role and work they create. This passion and desire brings positive energy and contributes to accomplishing the extraordinary.



We work with leaders within the many of the world’s most prestigious and influential companies. We therefore look for people who demonstrate leadership - whether through work, sports, community, entrepreneurialism, school, or extracurricular activities - and can foster effective teamwork to drive results, positive change, and also help others achieve their goals.



Our people need to be adaptable to the ever-evolving requirements of both projects and client activity level. Flexibility, change and a degree of comfort with ambiguity are therefore crucial characteristics for all our employees. As an international firm with clients, projects and offices all over the world, our employees may need to travel depending on the assignment or responsibility.



We look for people that are conscientious because they take pride in everything they do. Conscientious people are reliable, responsible, rigorous, well-organised and plan ahead. Never willing to rest on their laurels, conscientious people always believe that they are only as good as their next project.




AKQA is an Equal Opportunities Employer, we believe that diversity is vital to AKQA’s ability to provide our clients with the best recommendations and are committed to fostering a varied and inclusive work environment. Your race, colour, ancestry, religion, gender, gender identity, national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability or veteran status have no bearing on our hiring decisions. If you have a disability or special need that requires accommodation, please let us know.
