About us

What makes us a bit different is that we’re always trying to improve ourselves. We want to be smarter and braver. We want to make the difference.

Our values reflect this. These are the things we hold dear. The things we look for in people. The things we strive to find in ourselves.

Brains. Courage. Heart.

We think it’s important to keep learning. To listen. To appreciate we don’t always have all the answers – but can, if we use our heads, always find them.

We think it’s important to try new things. To be different, and proud of it. To push ourselves out of our comfort zones. And to deal with things with honesty and integrity.

And we think it’s important to not just think, but feel too. To remember that people have feelings. That there’s nothing more powerful in marketing a brand or working in a business if you can make people love what you are and what you do.

Jon Kirk - Account DirectorX

My favourite thing about my job is seeing the results – when clients feedback to confirm that the activity that we’ve worked on together has had the results that we aimed for or has even surpassed our aims. These times are naturally also ‘my greatest moments’ – seeing that the thinking and creativity has paid off and that we’ve delivered a great piece of work that everyone is happy with.

Richard Lewis
Richard Lewis - Managing PartnerX

I love understanding how people work, and how learning places and workplaces work. Then, celebrating these wonderfully complex interactions with beautifully simple stories that bring them all together. Promising a real, personal future is much more interesting than promising that love can be found in a coffee cup.

Careers

Working at SMRS means being in a place where you’ll always be encouraged to use your head. We trust you to think things through, get advice from the right places and, if you don’t understand something, say. That’s what working with brains is really about.

But we also want people to feel good about what they do. That feel good factor might come from finding the right solution and feeling your own brainpower. But equally it might come from doing something you didn’t think you could do and feeling your confidence grow. Or it might be from just really getting on with your clients, feeling you know what they want and understanding where they’re coming from.

Of course, there are other things that help with the feel good factor. Being treated like an adult. Really pulling together in a team to get something done. And knowing your work is fairly rewarded and recognised.

Every day, we work with our clients to help them identify where, within their organisations, the joy of work and study can be found. We work just as hard to find it here too.
