Vision And Purpose
Why does CleverClicks Exist?
We exist to facilitate growth: we are growth-obsessed. Not only are we dedicated to growing our clients’ businesses, but we’re devoted to growing our employees as well.
The truth is - we’re a people business. We know that the strength as a company is directly proportional to the brilliance of our team, so the better our people are feeling, the better we can serve our clients. It’s a feed-forward cycle of growth and success.
As an employer we have a simple goal: to become the best place to work in South Africa.
Yup. Seriously. We want to be the best employer in the country.
How do we achieve this lofty goal?
By offering perks like free beer, flexi-hours, your birthday off work, days to work from home in your pajamas?
Well, actually, we do offer all those things and more (you’ll see a full list of our perks below) but that’s not what our people value most.
We’re a great company to work because we have this crazy, ‘new school’ belief that work should not be the centre of your universe. Our families, friendships and our health should always come first - even if that means our work being delayed.
If you or your mother/child/ best friend needs support in any way, drop your work and go support them. However long it takes. Someone will cover for you, and if they can’t and the client is not understanding of the rescheduled work, then they probably won’t be a client for much longer. We’re that serious.
We also believe that people are smarter than most managers give them credit for. We know that the more freedom & opportunities we give you, the more space there is for your particular brand of genius to shine.
We do not operate like a big, soulless corporate. Micromanaging, office politics, bureaucracy, the daily grind… Hard no. Your life is too short to be wishing away 5 days of your week.
My favourite thing about working at CleverClicks
My favourite thing.... The team! The culture! The care! The passion! (and getting to take the piss out of the CEO)
CleverClicks is filled with people who are responsible, actually care about our clients and consistently deliver fantastic results. It's truly a pleasure to work with the team and be a part of this organisation. The CleverClicks culture is one-of-a-kind, and I wouldn't change a thing.
CleverClicks is one of the most unique organisations I have the pleasure to work in. The culture of the team makes me immensely proud to be part of this company! It's truly one in a million team of talented, highly experienced and fun individuals. Wouldn't want to be anywhere else... ever!
My favourite thing about working at CleverClicks is that the team works really well together. No egos, no pissing contests and no "but that's not my job" nonsense. At any time anyone is willing to step in and help out with anything.
I love working with people who are so inherently knowledgeable about Digital Marketing and specifically my knowledge of SEO. We all push one another and teach each other new things all the time and it becomes a team growth journey instead of trying to succeed as a "one man band".
I love working at CleverClicks as there is a company culture like no other! Comprised of support, respect, integrity and above all else - Fun. I feel like I've grown so much through working at CleverClicks, as my collegues have pushed me to learn & excel in my position and I couldn't wish for anything better.
I love working with wildly & uniquely smart, highly driven people who care so much about each other, and about achieving solid results from what we're all working on together. I don't want to imagine life without this team.
What Sets Us Apart?
Work from Japan, or your favourite local cafe. We’re a digital business - an internet connection is all you need.
We give you working hours each week to dedicate to learning & upskilling yourself.
We send our staff to conferences (overseas and locally) as rewards for job well-done.
Structure your days how you want. Start at 6 am, yoga at 11, leave at 4? Go for it.
Free & unlimited cappuccinos for all those who meet their targets.
Because Friday afternoon meetings are better with gin.
You get the day off on your birthday.
Office PlayStation, foosball, mini cricket
Our Woodstock office is a playground.
Results-focused (not time)
Results achieved mean way more than hours spent. If you finish all your work or hit all your targets with time to spare - go home!
Our team gets an allowance to spend on things like gym memberships or yoga classes.
All our staff have regular sessions with a qualified business coach.
Less time doing things you don’t like
We actively try to minimise the time you spend on tasks you don’t love. If you don’t like something, we’ll do what we can to help get it off your plate.
Work does not equal life. We actively encourage our employees not to diversify their happiness portfolios and not let work become their everything.
We have an in-house ‘performance-optimiser’ to help you become the best version of yourself, whether that’s personally, professionally or both.
Your position doesn’t determine the quality of your ideas or opinions. If you don’t enjoy speaking up, we’re probably not the agency for you.
We live and breathe our company values, and our culture is built around them. Every member of our team is evaluated on each of our values as part of their performance reviews, and every week each person nominates someone who they feel as embodied our values best.
We deliver results, not tasks.
Being busy is not an achievement and a completed task-list is only worth the outcomes it achieves.
We make it simpler.
There is always a simpler and more elegant way to do things. We reward those who find it.
We challenge & are challenged.
We challenge each other, challenge ideas & challenge the way things are done. CleverClicks employees are not only good at challenging, we love being challenged. Why? Because we’re always focused on growing and getting better. Challenging ideas and the status quo is how we keep making things better.
We focus on 1 thing.
We finish one thing before we move on to the next. Multi-tasking is so 2009. We prefer to be laser focused on 1 thing at a time, because a completed milestone is worth more than 100 half-done tasks.
We get busy growing.
If you’re not growing, you’re dying. Whether it’s personally or professionally, our own business or our clients’ companies - we’re relentlessly learning and growing.
How We Hire
Our hiring process differs depending on the role, but here’s an idea of what to expect:
Send us your CV via job ad for the position you are interested in.
If we like what we see, we’ll send you a few more questions that we’ll ask you to answer in a video.
Our interview process is initially conducted over phone or Skype, and a portion of it will be done in person at our offices.
Depending on the position, you may also be asked to do a skills assessment.
Our recruitment process is longer than most because we don’t take on just anyone.
