About Goodstuff

Goodstuff are a full-service media planning and buying agency.

They were founded as a team within Virgin Media in 2004, motivated by the company’s desire for a different, better way to do media. The brand became Goodstuff’s founding client, with the agency gaining independent success thanks to a creative spirit, a willingness to break the rules, and a commitment to giving customers their best effort.

Today, Goodstuff are a 100-strong, full-service media and planning agency, and are the UK’s fastest-growing independent media agency, driven by a desire to do the right thing and keep it simple.

The company was co-founded by Andrew Stephens and Ben Hayes. Andrew’s role covers client management, new business and marketing - and he is one of the few staff at Goodstuff that owns and wears a suit. Ben, meanwhile, presides over agency management and is a driving force for Goodstuff’s people and culture strategy - and has yet to be convinced to wear a suit in his 14 years of working with Andrew.

What is it like to work for Goodstuff

Co-founders Ben and Andrew speak to the agency every Monday morning to set the tone for the week ahead. Breakfast meetings are held with all new Goodstuffers to hear what they are all about.
