About the7stars

the7stars UK Ltd is a media agency that plans, buys and evaluates advertising for clients across a diverse range of sectors. Current clients include Iceland, Gumtree, Suzuki, Discovery Channel, Sony Music, Ladbrokes Coral, Warner Music and Nintendo.

The London-based company was founded in 2005 by Jenny Biggam and Mark Jarvis, and currently has over 190 employees

In 2017 they launched the7stars Foundation, a charity that supports under 16-year-old children suffering from the effects of abuse, homelessness, addiction or who are child carers.

Each year they put 5% of their profits into the foundation and staff are encouraged to get involved either through visiting the beneficiaries they have donated to, running social media feeds or raising money through various initiatives.

As well as improving engagement around giving back and making a difference, the Foundation has also helped employees understand that the work they do has an impact beyond the organisation’s profit numbers.
