Life @ BDB
Are you looking to kickstart your career or take the next step on your journey? At BDB, we work with a wide array of leading international B2B brands and businesses, helping them solve complex challenges and unlock new commercial opportunities every day. Our company culture is built around the principles of support, shared achievement, openness and transparency, making BDB a place where everyone has a voice – after all, we are a 100% employee-owned business.
Discover the interesting career pathways of our BDB team. A ‘one size fits all’ approach to role responsibility and personal development is not what we’re about at BDB. We want to give you the opportunity to build your existing career path in the direction you see fit.
Why choose BDB? The team would tell you it’s because we get along so well and we trust one another to get sh*t done – in our values we call it being ‘Stronger Together’. As a 100% employee-owned business, we take pride in delivering great work and we enjoy loads of benefits because of it. Our success is only possible because of the passion, talent, hard-work and can-do attitude of our people. That’s why when you join BDB, you join a community that truly cares for each other.
Our values are the fundamental beliefs upon which our business and behaviour are based, and they guide every decision we make.
WE THINK BEFORE WE ACT
We think before we act to ensure every decision we make is in best interests of the team.
WE EMBRACE CHALLENGES
We embrace challenges and think differently to bring new perspective. We have the skill, determination and spirit to take on any challenge without fear of failure.
WE REFUSE TO STAND STILL
We refuse to stand still and lead from the front to strive for better every day. We continually adapt and refine our approach to ensure the optimal solution to meet your needs.
WE’RE STRONGER TOGETHER
We’re stronger together and play to our strengths to win as a team. Our diverse knowledge, skills and experiences means we can work with you to answer the questions that no one else can.
Execution matters and delivery counts in everything we do. We thrive on raising the bar to deliver the results that realise your ambition.
Paying it forward
At BDB, you can expect to work in a supportive environment with other talented professionals, where you can develop existing skills, mentor others and discover new career opportunities. Given our employee-owned status, every single thing we do as a business is in your best interests.
Everyone has a say in what the future of BDB looks like from commercial growth down to what pub we decide to go to on a Thursday night, we don’t believe in hierarchy, but we do believe that everyone should have a say in the future of their career and their workplace. Being part of an employee-owned business also means you get a profit share in the company AND the potential for a tax-free, annual bonus.
You heard right…unlimited. Take your minimum of 33 days and then some.
From our HQ to your living room or a cafe, our only request is you get the work done! We’re currently working from the office twice a week on whatever days suit you and we’ve just introduced a trial remote week from wherever you want in the world!

From client showcases to our summer meeting trip abroad, there’s plenty of opportunities to travel (we’re off to Prague this year!)
From high street discounts to cycle to work schemes and gym membership discounts, we've got you covered.

We are Climate Neutral Certified. As a threat far greater than the global pandemic, climate change will affect all of humanity and with time ticking on, businesses need to take action to put it to an end. We’ve taken the time and effort to measure, offset and reduce our carbon footprint and ‘flatten the curve’ of carbon emissions. We’re sharing this with you because our team and our clients deserve transparency and when we say we are an innovative, forward-thinking business we want to have the evidence to prove it!
Our chosen local charity, the Seashell Trust is a leading learning disability and autism charity providing the very best education and supported living services. We regular organise fundraising events and initiatives to support the Seashell Trust, from bake sales to charity hikes (we’re doing The Three Peaks this year!), we are always up for a challenge.
