Whether this is through working alongside a variety of different cultures and personal perspectives, or being given the opportunity to learn a wide range of skills – not only those related to one’s job role – or being given freedom to impact and innovate on a product that shapes the way people travel. All of this is how we expand horizons at” 

Emily Firth, employer brand manager at, said: “Everything about how the campaign was developed involved the internal community – from the way our strategy was developed, refining the concept and writing the script through to our cast of talented employees who auditioned to take part. Because MediaMonks shared our unique vision for this project, the process was rewarding and seamless for everyone involved.”
