We create memorable experiences that evoke emotions, shape opinions and make things happen.
Live events. Exhibitions. Employee engagement. Video and digital content.
We’ve been doing this and more for over 25 years – all by serving a single idea.
Forging work for Healthcare, Financial and Professional Services and more for over 20 years, our busy building remains as committed to delivering quality as it did in the industrial revolution.
Beneath original beams and rusty features in the vast attic space of the Merchants Warehouse on the Bridgewater canal, WRG’s directors sit next to fresh-faced juniors in the spirit of true collaboration.
Our old office was bursting at the seams, so we've moved to an amazing new creative space. From Monday 4th March, you'll find us 22-24 Torrington Place, WC1E 7HJ. Come and visit any time, the coffee is on us!
Established to serve national and global Healthcare clients clustered in the Northeast, our rapidly expanding US office now serves other sectors such as Technology and Financial & Professional Services.
Working in the heart of Center City, our team is inspired by the deep history and pioneering spirit of the nation’s first capital. With a growing reputation for creativity and a can-do approach WRG is proud to be part of the Philadelphia community.
At the very heart of Europe — where France, Germany and Switzerland collide — one in ten of this city’s tri-lingual inhabitants work with and for the pharmaceutical and life science industries…
It employs more than 150 staff with offices in Europe and the US. The company has over 25 years’ experience working across categories including: Healthcare, Energy, Technology, Luxury, Retail, FMCG and Financial & Professional Services.
We can create and deliver projects built across different time zones, and offer opportunities to work across and from the US, Europe and beyond.
We’re flexible, respectful and creative, and speak over fifteen languages. We all know each other — and like it that way. Each of our offices may have their own distinct character, but we’re very much one WRG.
Our people come from a diverse range of backgrounds — live events, business, logistics, technology, web, print, advertising, film, television and theatre. All ready to apply their talents to different areas we work in.
Lion tamers, tree cabin builders, data jugglers, playwrights and ethnologists — you too can apply. Because we don’t believe in shackling people to a résumé.
If you’ve a desire to work across a new discipline, we won’t stop you. Because we’re more interested in what our people are like off the page than on it.
Whether working across cultures on global launches — or more local, intimate events — we always need inspired and inspiring people to Create Unforgettable.
