Leo Burnett Sydney has hired two of the four interns who completed its inaugural The Nest program, Elizabeth Maunsell and Justin Hazelton.
Hazelton and Maunsell have both been hired as account coordinators and are the first recruits from the Leo Burnett and Diageo paid marketing and advertising internship program.
Pete Bosilkovski, client services director Leo Burnett Sydney, said: “I am very proud of The Nest as no other internship in Australia allows students the opportunity to taste both worlds – advertising and marketing. This is so important considering they will spend most of their communication careers working side-by-side developing comms together. I am also thrilled that our first year of running The Nest has resulted in the appointment of two new staff members who have already started to learn firsthand why creativity and commercial innovation matter in business.”
The Nest launched in May last year as a 12 week paid placement where inters split their time evenly between the brand marketing, planning or innovation teams at Diageo and account management at Leo Burnett.
The 2013 program had 20 shortlisted respondents which were whittled down to the final four.
“All interns involved in The Nest are given an insight into the exceptional value Leo Burnett and Diageo place on our client/agency relationship and this is an invaluable experience, because if interns walk away with one thing, I'd like it to be this. Respecting one another's art is critical. It's something Matt Bruhn and I are highly passionate about and try to instill in our partnership culture. It's a key ingredient of our award-winning success,” Bosilkovski added.
The Nest will also run this year with a call out date for interested applications to be announced shortly.
