ROLES NOW AVAILABLE
WHEN YOU DO WHAT YOU LOVE, IT’S WORK, BUT IT’S NOT A JOB.
VALUES AND PILLARS:
WE LIVE THEM. YOU LIVE THEM.
The basis of our hiring process, team check-ins, reviews, the work we do, and life here at PF are the pillars and values. We live them, and live by them. We talk about them, pay attention to them, and notice where we’re not living up to them, and talk about it. We expect all team members to live by these values.
There are a lot of things I could say I love, but at the root of all those things is we live our values. We live them, we talk about them, we pay attention to them, we pay attention if we’re not living up to them. Values can be this elusive thing; people think they mean something but they mean different to everyone. But at PF the internal values were formed out of conversations we had about what those actual things meant. It looks different depending on factors for your own individual life, but when it comes back to it we do live them.
The four foundations of life and work at PF support the kind of company we all want to be part of. They were identified many years ago, back when the company was young. They’ve served us well, and we continue to use them as foundational reminders of what we stand for.
The internal values go into more detail, and describe the way we do the creative work. We use these values in daily conversations and in team meets. They help us decide how to word an email, how to help a hurting client, whether to take on a prospect or not. Or a new team member.
Other companies have marketing and a lot of words but they don’t have a culture. They don’t apply human behaviour. They sell it but they don’t have it. You are just a number, just an employee, which makes you a resource, not a person with aspirations. Even receiving new books to read makes me feel valued – because you’re giving me a resource to make me grow. It’s not about making great profits first; it’s about being human and caring about your people, because when we care about our people we will make great profit and great work for our clients.
HOW IT WORKS
7 STAGE HIRING PROCESS
The PF hiring process has been exclusively built for us, by us. The PF pillars and values are the driving force behind it, and those who become part of the team combine both skills and values. Yes, you’ll be skilled in doing the creative work: you’ll also show a pattern of living out the values in everything you do and say. The hiring process helps us decide if you’re the person for this place, and it helps you decide if we’re the place for you as a person.
THE PF HUMANS
We are a team of creative, curious, transparent indiviuals who do what we do with passion and heart. We’re not all the same, and that’s ok. It’s good to be different. We all live and work by PF’s core values and that is what makes us the team we are.
The culture and the people are what I love. It’s part OF your life, not just a job you come in and work and go home and that’s not connected. We want to be friends and want to be part of their lives as opposed to only talking to each other because it’s about work. And it still is work. We are stretched to be creative all the time: and we have to push to keep that creativity flowing. We’re encouraged to rest, and to do that – creatively – in our own way.
HOW TO APPLY
SUBMIT A 3 MINUTE VIDEO
The first stage in the process is sending us a video, because we want to meet YOU, not a list of the work you’ve done and the jobs you’ve had. We’ll get to those later. Record a 3 minute video telling us (and showing us) who you are, as well as what role you want, why you want it, and why PF will help you do that work well.
