A bit about TIPi Group

TIPi Group is an award-winning specialist network built on performance and profitability (Pi). With an ambition of shaping the future together, we house teams of professionals into different areas of expertise but always operate with shared values at our core. We work towards one common goal and purpose.

Our aim is to transform the fortunes of those we work with. We are continually seizing opportunities and pioneering the way, collaboratively. As one tribe. With the aim of building a strong network of like-minded people, we have created an environment in which individuals are encouraged to fulfil their true potential.

Each agency within TIPi Group operates with the same values at their core: collaboration and authenticity, driven by restless minds and a clear purpose.

It’s important to us that we work with individuals and clients who embody these principles. The people who we work with are energetic and ambitious, with a shared entrepreneurial spirit.

We know that to be truly ‘specialist’ in your craft, you need to remain nimble and progressive. We stay one step ahead of the continual digital evolution and shape the future of that landscape.

Through our network, we can create specialist teams to handle our clients’ business challenges, delivering authentic integration and impactful, award-winning results on every level.

TIPi Group has been named 2019 Digital Agency of the Year by The Drum

Over the last four and half years, TIPI Group has grown to four agencies and 60 people. The four agencies are ROAST (traditional performance digital media), Kitty (website design and development), Rabbit & Pork (voice experience) and The Market (flexible digital performance media).

Each agency is be expected to succeed in their own right but as each agency is also designed to be complementary to each other, we expect the network to become greater than a sum of all its parts. We firmly believe in the organic growth of this network so that we can all build something unique and innovative together. We are now looking for talented individuals to help us achieve this vision.

We’re incredibly proud of the company culture we have built here; a culture that has been recognised for many awards, including being named as of one of The Times Top 100 Small Companies to Work 2019.
