M&C Saatchi Group - who we are
M&C Saatchi Group are a creative company of five specialist divisions, connected through data, technology & culture, to deliver Meaningful Change for clients.
Change that makes a substantial contribution to commercial growth and leaves a positive impact on the world, because there is no longer a choice between the two.

Lead value creation by identifying how and where creativity can unlock new value for clients
Our five core divisions are: Connected Creativity; Passion Marketing; Global & Social Issues; Brand, Experience & Innovation; and Performance Media.
How we work is based on two core principles – Brutal Simplicity of Thought and Diversity of Thought. Together they guide how we solve problems and how we build integrated specialist teams.
We are Headquartered in London but operations span 23 countries with major hubs in the UK, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Asia and Australia.
We are building a fair and equitable organisation, reflecting the global markets in which we operate placing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, (DEI), at the heart of how we plan and operate.

And we will continue to shape our business to reflect the diversity of the world we live and operate in.
