Life at LCA

Small in feel and large in talent the LCA team is an amazing one to be part of and makes LCA so great at what we do.

 

We operate in a dynamic and fast paced environment, constantly pushing ourselves, challenging each other and learning as we go along – no one day is ever the same. And we like it that way! LCA support the people that are building, changing and making the environment in London and beyond, so naturally our clients make our work interesting.

We like to say that we work on the most exciting and challenging projects – the ones you walk past now or in the future and say ‘I was part of that’ – and we are incredibly proud of what we do. We work in a matrix style, rather than set teams. It means you don’t get pigeon-holed and can learn from working with different people across the office. And whilst we want to ensure our people are rounded communications professionals, we embrace specialism, encouraging our people to become experts in a particular borough, a sector or a service.

We like to grow and promote from within which is why we have a lower staff turnover than most in the industry, people who have been with us a very long time and why one of our Board Directors started out as an AE. We’ve also twice won the PR Week Gold Award for ‘Best Place to Work’.

Training and development

At LCA you get to work with and learn from the very best in the industry in a stunning open plan office in Covent Garden with fantastic view of London. We pride ourselves on our commitment to training, learning and development and making sure each member of our team reaches their full potential with us. With a tailored and dedicated training budget we know there isn’t a one size fits all approach to training and that we all learn differently which is why we encourage everyone to do what works for them – from external training to internal masterclasses, hosting speakers to attending events.

We have formal appraisals six monthly and publish our job descriptions for each level to encourage our people to push themselves for promotion.

Benefits 

We reward our staff well – with competitive salaries and bonuses but also with some of the softer stuff that makes the working day that bit easier. We provide beer, a choice of wines and G&T, available to everyone, fresh fruit and a range of snacks. We have fresh towels and a laundry service for those using our shower or using the gym or going for a swim (which is in the basement of our office). We are also a very friendly place, with monthly socials, bi-annual trips abroad (we’ve done Prague, Venice, Seville and Paris to name a few), regular team lunches and even more frequent trips to the pub! We offer benefits for every stage of your life – tenancy deposit loans to Childcare vouchers, generously matched pension contributions to season ticket loans – as we value every member of our team. LCA prides itself on its openness and transparency. We start every week with a meeting for all staff, involve the team in the decisions the business takes and we listen to our people. When we asked the team in our annual staff survey what’s the best bit about working at LCA – they said the team – and we can’t say better than that!

Awards

At LCA we value the links with the industry bodies our team belong to and are proud of all the awards we win.
