Following a highly successful first year, paid internship program The Nest opens applications for the 2014.

The worldwide industry-first joint initiative between Leo Burnett and Diageo Australia offers enthusiastic and talented students and recent graduates a paid 12-week marketing and advertising internship spanning both businesses.

The next intake of successful interns will spend six weeks working in Account Service at Leo Burnett and six weeks in marketing at Diageo from 15 September to 5 December 2014.

Reflecting the success of the program, two of this year’s four interns, Elizabeth Maunsell and Justin Hazelton, were offered permanent positions at Leo Burnett following their internship. Drawing on their experience as inaugural ‘Nesters’, Liz and Justin have organised the 2014 program.

“The Nest is all about making the most of an amazing opportunity to demonstrate the ambition, aptitude and attitude needed to get a foothold in our industry when you are just starting out,” said Pete Bosilkovski, Client Services Director Leo Burnett Sydney.

“The success of the first intake underscores the value of The Nest in nurturing the industry’s future leaders. We understand that everybody starts with a CV short on work experience. The Nest provides that in spades. It is an exceptional opportunity to gain invaluable experience, contacts and insights – and a first step on their career ladder – by working with some of the industry’s best creative, strategic and business minds.”

Adam Ballesty, Diageo Australia Marketing & Innovation Director added: “The Nest, like our industry, is built on partnerships and collaboration. It gives tomorrow’s marketing and advertising professionals the unique chance to experience the most awarded client-agency partnership in Asia Pacific from both perspectives first-hand. We relish the opportunity to continue the program into a second year and look forward to discovering and guiding more new talent in The Nest.”

“The Nest is unique because it offers juniors the opportunity to interact with their counterparts from the start of their careers. It’s often the case that juniors – agency and client side – reach the second or third year of their career without having any interaction with their client or agency-side counterpart and have no idea how to handle it when it comes,” added Pete.

“Interns’ talents are often underestimated by the industry and The Nest offers graduates real experience of what it’s like to work on both sides of the business.The exciting aspect of this year’s program is that it has been moulded and put together by last years Nesters. Their insight and experience will ensure that our intern program continues to stay relevant and engaging because it’s designed by interns.”

This year’s four successful interns will be determined following a one-day workshop for 20 shortlisted applicants.

Applications are open to tertiary students in their last year of study, or those who have recently graduated, in a related field including advertising, marketing, business, design or communications.

Applications for The Nest 2014 are now open with the closing date 14 August 2014.
