Why Lem-uhn?

  • The opportunity to progress quickly and learn about all aspects of a PR agency within a small and growing agency.
  • A happy agency with an open dialogue to assess your workload and ensure it’s manageable within work hours.
  • You’ll be working on purposeful clients that are making a positive difference in the world making your work more meaningful.
  • Flexible working options: At Lem-uhn, we believe that happy people can do their best work, and sometimes that means being flexible. Work shouldn’t be the boss of your whole life and we want to encourage you to have a fulfilling balance between your work and personal life, which means you can flex your hours when things come up.
  • Less admin than other agencies: We use efficient practices to take the boring tasks out of PR to ensure our intelligent and amazing employees are using their time well rather than wasting it. What can be automated, should be, and you should be helping to build the processes to do so.
  • A sustainable agency: We acknowledge that there is a huge issue with our carbon impact on the environment, and as an agency, we offset all of our employees’ impact with that aim in mind, meaning you’ll be carbon-negative by working with us.
