NATIVE’s culture is one of inclusivity and cooperation. We want our NATIVEs to own responsibility for themselves and their work, and be free to act in a self-motivated and collaborative way. We believe this is how people are best able to achieve their full potential and feel fulfilled by what they do. But we don’t just want to talk the cultural talk — we want to walk the cultural walk.
Therefore, instead of the traditional top-down corporate structure, NATIVE has a tribal structure composed of five "tribes" - Medallion, Gaia, Modjadji, Phoenix, and Neo. These tribes are self-managed, multi-disciplinary teams that work with dedicated clients. This system enables us to be client-focused, agile, flexible, and retain an intimate boutique feel, but simultaneously take advantage of the resources and benefits of the full agency organisation.
Fundamentally, our culture is about caring and creativity. We love people — both within NATIVE VML and in the greater world around us. That is why we always strive to create work that makes a real difference in people’s lives.
