PHMG – Why Work With Us?


Established in 1998, PHMG has grown to become the world’s leading audio branding agency. Today, we help more than 36,000 businesses from every sector of the global market sound as good as they look – including world-leading brands such as Coca-Cola, Audi and Adidas.

Blending an exclusive Brand-Sound-Track™, creative copy and world-class voice artistry, we develop audio brands that represent the distinct identity of each individual client, with each element entrusted to the industry’s finest writing, composition and voiceover talent. These inspiring productions replaces the beeps or silence traditionally heard on-hold, connecting with a captive audience to engage listeners, encourage inquiries and create the most professional company image in this vital channel for consumer communication.

PHMG is a proud member of the Institute of Customer Service (ICS). Following a recent in-depth survey by the ICS, we scored higher than the UK average in every category, with an outstanding overall satisfaction rate. These exceptional results prove our Audio Brand Consultants and Account Managers’ unwavering commitment to customer care.

How does your future sound?



Showing our support. Playing our part.

In 2013, we created The PHMG Foundation — a unique fundraising initiative created and designed with one key objective in mind:

To assist any charity whose aims include relieving poverty, distress, sickness and disease.

Since the Foundation began, we’re incredibly proud to have raised more than £500,000/$675,000 for more than 70 organisations – taking part in hundreds of activities including marathons, mountain climbs and our flagship Global Santa Dashes. Last year was no exception, and we achieved a final total of £57,698/$77,892. With the company contribution, this resulted in a total of £107,698/$145,392, which will be donated to our four deserving charities – The Red Cross, Action for Children, The Salvation Army and SOS Children’s Villages Illinois. Each organisation will receive £26,924/$36,348 – a figure which will make a real difference to the people they support, all over the world. 


In 2019, we’re want to go even bigger and better. Our staff have chosen the charities we’ll be championing throughout the year – Mind, Cancer Research, The National Alliance on Mental Illness and SOS Children’s Villages Illinois – who will join the Red Cross to create our final five. If we beat last year’s total, the company will once again match our contribution, and our chosen organisations will receive another valuable sum that will help change the lives of people in need.

The PHMG ethos:

As a company, we take great inspiration from American Football Coach Vince Lombardi’s famous quote:

“Individual commitment to a group effort – this is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilisation work.”

This philosophy shapes the way we work on a day-to-day basis, and we expect all our employees to share our individual commitment to the group effort. But our ethos goes beyond this. From this quote, our company mantra was born:

Hard work – Passion – Continuous improvement

Every member of our staff embodies these qualities, and it’s these three principles that are the key to success at PHMG.

    Head of Client Engagement Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PHMG (London, England) in November 2020.

    Interview

    From start to finish the business conducted themselves in a professional, efficient and transparent manner. Paul led my initial communication with the business and from the start and all the way through the process he was a fantastic ambassador for PHMG.

    He sent communication regularly, he updated me on process changes, he challenged me on my profile in a constructive and positive way in order that I was able to articulate myself in a succinct and relevant way in my interview. He ensured I was ready for my interview with the different members of senior leadership team.

    I had 2 interviews, the 1st stage was with Gareth and Kristian. Again, very professional, great questions and all very relevant to the role I was applying for. The first stage lasted about 50 minutes and was built around the STAR format for questions. The first stage was more around team dynamics and leadership style.

    2nd stage was with Jason and Mark. Different style (more centered around operational challenges) but I really enjoyed this stage as well. Challenging questions, but I wouldn't expect anything less from a global leader in their field.

    Again, STAR format questions mixed in with more direct questions. Very professional and it was great to see how well the senior team worked well together. Certainly gave confidence that this is a well run business with a clear strategy.

    All in all I have had a very positive experience with PHMG and can't fault them at all for their process.

    Paul in the rec team is also a credit to the business. My first experience of PHMG was via him and he has maintained that positive representation of the business throughout.
