About IAB

Background:

The IAB is the trade body for the digital advertising industry. Our members include Google, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon, media brands including The Guardian, News UK and Bauer and ad tech companies such as AppNexus. Our role is to bring the industry together with our 1,200 members, including media owners, agencies and brands.

Our belief is that digital is the smartest way for brands to reach and wow their customers. We are here to help simplify and explain the sometimes complex world of digital advertising, as a trusted source of research, guidance and education and to celebrate the very best-in-class creative.

We do this through a range of activities, events, training, research, defining developments in the industry, setting standards, helping the industry to remain self-regulated and more.

We're also proud to have been listed in Campaign Magazine's top 50 best places to work.

Ways of working:

The IAB works in a very open and collaborative way. A team of c. 30, we have a company meeting to kick off the week, project teams composed of people from different departments, as well as a strong sense of team within each department. We encourage our people to be entrepreneurial and feel empowered to drive change and deliver new projects. We are not about working at your desk all day every day, our office and separate events space allows us to change the scenery and we encourage hot desking and support flexible working.

Culture:

Culture is very important to us, we work with the whole industry, an innovative, dynamic and fast moving sector so we want our people to add to the fabric of what we do and what we represent. We are a social and upbeat team with different expertise and interests (baking, cycling, eating burgers) and a great ability to pitch in and work together to deliver our big events and initiatives. Education is important so in addition to training we hold regular lunch and learn sessions, presentations for the team that help us all keep up to speed with developments across the industry. We celebrate success whether it’s the completion of a big project or something small but important. We have two orange slides in our office and a couple of hoverboards to keep us entertained.
