Our company culture is founded on a team of trusted, hard working creative thinkers who strive for excellence on a daily basis in an open plan, working environment.

We value:

  • Passion, to show up each day motivated, knowing that your job and ideas are meaningful and your contribution is important to the entire company’s success
  • Trust, through being open and honest to gain trust in one another to achieve and excel
  • Positive mindsets are key to influencing your productivity, your passion and to everyone around you. This is how you show up to work each day.
  • Creativity means taking risks and ignoring doubt and facing fears. It means doing something different and searching for inspiration in even the most mundane places. It means you’re asking stupid questions and leaving ego at the door all in the service of a common goal: Supporting and helping each other as we try to make the work the best it can be
  • Empowerment, we believe in empowering our workforce through levels of project ownership and creative freedom
  • Respect for the creative process, collaboration and for each other. Be pleasant to work with and thoughtful of others

We believe that in order for all +3K team members to achieve creative excellence within their roles and tasks on a daily basis, we must operate on the following key principles.

  • Proactive, self directed and self motivated, the ability to problem solve, use initiative and work independently as required 
  • Communication is essential to provide clarity, updates and thorough understanding of each task or assignment, to enable regular feedback and to be able to give and receive constructive criticism
  • Behaviour, be courteous, helpful and pleasant to work with – your behaviour and attitude represents our company both inside and outside the office
  • Teamwork, collaboration is key to our success and we must all support one another, employing team leaders – not managers – to provide key motivation, skills and experience ensuring all employees are linked, not ranked
  • Responsibility and Accountability to be punctual, to support one another, deliver to deadlines, to communicate when problems arise and to work towards the appropriate solutions openly 

From Creator to Production Assistant, we strive to create a strong culture of collaboration, opportunity, and enrichment for every artist and production crew member we employ. It’s our responsibility as a team that at the end of the day, everyone leaves more INSPIRED and STRONGER than they arrived in the morning.
