  • You work for various high-profile clients in diverse sectors.

  • Always something to learn: colleagues sing in a choir, travel to exotic places to learn new languages, cycle like madmen, have ministers on speed dial or use horses as the perfect mental coach. Got any questions? Fire away!

  • Fully stocked fridge. Always a surprising office challenge. A fitness room with showers. Weekly yoga class.

  • Electric company car, meal vouchers and hospitalisation insurance.

  • You will never eat alone. (Did we already mention our amazing sunlit offices and a rooftop restaurant just two floors away?)

  • And last but not least, our office is centrally located in Antwerp, the creative capital of the Low Countries. Easy reachable by public transportation with a tram stop, bus stop and cycle station in front of the office. We use shared bikes and e-steps to move around in this bustling city or to quickly have a lunch break in the nearby bookstore.
