Event Coordinator and PR Executive come in at number five and eight respectively, and for the past few years, both roles have featured in the annual list, which measures factors such as deadlines, career growth potential, travel, competition and meeting the public.

According to the Health and Safety Executive, in 2015/16 stress was cited as the reason for 37% of all work related ill health cases.

Champions, which offers events and PR as two of its ten core offerings, has found ways to ensure staff are kept fulfilled, motivated and happy despite working in a high-pressure industry.

The agency has been offering complimentary boot camp and Pilates classes to its team for over a year, as well as in-house gym complete with free weights and cardio machines.

Champions also organises fruit boxes to be delivered each week to the head offices, and it has recently introduced monthly a Massage Monday to help ease tension and encourage relaxation.

Speaking of the CareerCast 2018 results, Manging Director of Champions (UK) plc, Matthew Hayes, said:

“There is no doubting that events, PR and the whole branding industry is fast-paced and demanding, but also incredibly fulfilling and exciting.

Of course, it makes good business sense to ensure staff stay healthy and focused, but it goes deeper than that. We are a family business, and as such, its focus for us to create an environment where everyone in the Champions family are enthusiastic about coming to work, and that they feel positive about the work they do and what they are achieving, and that the rewards match the demands.”
