About Total Media Group

Total Media Group are a behavioural planning media agency. They produces strategies based on people’s behaviours – understanding how audiences think, feel and act – so that they reach their client’s audiences contextually, and at the moments that matter.

The company was established in 1982 as an independent agency based in London, with a head count of just three. By 1998 the agency had reached £20m in media billings and had moved to a larger office in Kensington to accommodate the 20 people working there.

They now have a combined billings of over £60m, a staff headcount of over 120, and represent clients including Lenovo, Moto and Investec.

Employees are given one paid day off per year in order to do charity work, and they share case studies internally of how people have used them to encourage more charitable work.

Every week they have ‘Fun Factory Fridays’ where they meet for an end-of-the-week catch up.

To thank everyone for their hard work, at Christmas 2016, everyone was given a bonus that amounted to the 'average cost of Christmas'. So everyone, regardless of how long they'd worked for them had their Christmas paid for by the company.
