Our Values

Our values aren’t just guidelines; they’re the secret sauce that makes us who we are. 

We’re all about keeping it real. That means we’re upfront, honest, and genuine in everything we do. No fluff, no fuss—just good old-fashioned authenticity. When you work with us, you’ll always know exactly where you stand because we believe in building relationships based on trust and integrity.

We’re a bunch of curious cats. We’re always asking questions, exploring new ideas, and geeking out over the latest trends. We believe that curiosity fuels creativity and innovation, so we’re constantly pushing the envelope and challenging the status quo. Got a wild idea you want to try? Bring it on—we love a good adventure!

We’re not afraid to go bold or go home. We believe in taking risks, thinking outside the box, and going after our dreams with gusto. Whether it’s tackling a tough challenge or chasing down a crazy idea, we’re all about embracing the unknown and diving headfirst into the deep end. So, let’s grab life by the horns and make some magic happen!

Our Culture

Whether you’re an animal lover, foodie, explorer, film buff or gamer, we’ll get along just fine! Our team is full of big personalities, niche interests, bad jokes and good times. Self-confessed marketing nerds, we’re brought together by our shared passion for innovation, data, creative strategies…and our pets, of course!

Socials: We love celebrating everything, big and small, together. Our Culture Committee plans awesome seasonal socials, from camping trips to theme park adventures. Every month, we have ‘Show & Tells’ to share our big wins, and we make the most of early finish Fridays—like heading to the beach in the summer to soak up the Brighton sunshine!

Continuous Development: We’re all about being the best and staying ahead of the curve! Partnered with giants like Google, Facebook, Amazon our team learns from the top experts and keeps the knowledge flowing through fun weekly training sessions like Data & Doughnuts, Muffins & Media, and Coffee & Creative and monthly internal SpArke Sessions where we knowledge share and even feature special guests such as our media partners so the whole team benefits from any latest developments!

We love our city and community.
We pride ourselves on being supporters of:

Community: From day one, Arke has founded itself on community. Arke are proud Living Wage Employers and is part of the Endometriosis Friendly Employer Scheme. With a designated Culture Committee in only seven years we have worked on over 10 passion projects for local and national community causes that align with our values, such as the AllSorts Youth Project and the Human Dignity Project. As well as all employees receiving two paid volunteering days a year to support causes that matter to them, we have two charity partners we work with:

Volunteering Charity Partner: We have chosen national mental health and suicide prevention charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) as our volunteering partner, supporting them by providing time whenever we can.

Fundraising Charity Partner: For our fundraising partner, we have chosen Endometriosis UK. As one of only 0.05 businesses in the UK signed up to the Endometriosis Friendly Employer Scheme, we are passionate about raising vital funds to increase awareness and funding for this charity that supports the 1 in 10 people assigned female at birth with the condition.
