This is our active promise to our current and soon-to-be #mostinterested Royals. It's how we talk about our commitment to investing in the characteristic (curiosity) we love so much. In bringing this curiosity out of you in weird and wonderful ways, we make you a better Royal and help you continue to smash it in your working life..
We've got a borderline unhealthy obsession with hacking things. One of our recent faves is TELL IT TO THE LIGHTS. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our very caring kitchen lights will flash colours based on the mood of your message. Angry email = angry, red, aggressive lights. They really do listen. Go on, send us an inappropriate email.
Some companies have team building workshops. At the Royals, we have agency-wide, action-packed adventures. Find us beachin' in Byron Bay (2016), climbing Mt Kosciuszko in Thredbo (2017), and glamping in King Valley (2018). Our annual Royals UNconference serves to thank all Royals for their hard work, and take some time instead to play - we try our hands at curling, tour wineries, and space shuttle missions. We actually haven’t launched anyone into space yet, but there’s always next year!
Each year, at the Christmas party, one lucky Royal is drawn from a hat and wins a trip to SXSW in Austin, Texas. The winner tends to have one of the best experiences of their life in terms of number of tacos consumed (current average is 8 per day) and number of extremely epic events attended. Check out some previous SXSW Royals write-ups on our blog.
There is nothing better than a free snack. At The Royals this is our unofficial office mantra. All you can eat chips. We're talking cheezels, grain waves, chicken twisties, and vege chips for the health-conscious. We consume approximately 7,982,991 chips per week.
We made a Melbourne office in 2010 out of an oversized warehouse, and did what any normal group do with excessive space: build an office chair racetrack. Then we made a Sydney office in 2014 in hotter-than-hot Surry Hills and proceeded to fill it with beautiful chairs, toy doll heads and knick knackery. Today we're still maintaining that level of maturity. We've got a boardroom hidden behind a spinning bookshelf, ping pong table in a nightclub and a porcelain abomination that Jeff Koons wouldn't claim.
We love, and live, our values. Basically we are a lively (polite for crazy) team who always have each other's backs and embrace all challenges and opportunities together. Or as Siwka likes to say, we 'hit it with enthusiasm!'.
Emma Rhys is here to steer the Royals ship as Captain Organisation, aka Integrated Operations Director. When she’s not navigating the seas of process, you’ll find her mentoring producers, developing podcasts, and taking her dog, Arkie, on crabbing adventures in Port Phillip Bay. It may come in handy to know the true way to her heart is pho. “My life wouldn’t be complete without 2 bowls per week.”
We may have homes in two cities, but The Royals are one agency, or as we prefer to call it, one club.
Whether we're 'huddling' via video conference for our Monday morning all staffer, collaborating over a Google hangout, bonding with your allocated inter-office buddy or using your Royals annual "Travel card" to spend time in the sister office, we’re always working together to ensure the Agency maintains the ‘two eggs, one yolk’ philosophy.
It makes us an even more formidable force and we really like that.
We get a bit excited when a new Royal joins us. Everyone gets the quintessential Crumpler ‘Squid’ bag as a welcome pack, which, after extensive online stalking, is filled with items somewhat related to the way you roll. On occasions new Royals have found slabs of meats, extension cords and puzzles in their swag.
Check out our current positions below.
