Ad network The Clemenger Group is on the lookout for the next generation of brave thinkers and rebellious minds, offering graduates an opportunity to experience working in some of the best agencies in Sydney and Melbourne.
Applications for the 2016 program intake closes on Friday, 4 September 2015, with information available on the Clemenger Group website and Graduate Program Facebook Page. The program also runs in New Zealand.
As brilliant ideas – and minds – can come from anywhere, candidates do not require a background in marketing or advertising but they do have to be creative, energetic and constantly curious to land one of the coveted positions. Since its inauguration in 2007, the annual Program has offered over 200 graduates the opportunity to gain experience across mainstream advertising, experiential and shopper marketing, health advertising, public relations and research. With the Group’s individual companies and expertise unrivalled in scope and scale, the Clemenger Group Graduate Program was recently named as one of the country’s top 50 programs and the highest ranked in the communications category by The Australian newspaper.
Successful graduates rotate through Clemenger Group companies in Sydney and Melbourne for nine to ten months, spending three months in a diverse range of fields, including companies such as Clemenger BBDO, Porter Novelli, Traffik, URSAClemenger and CHE Proximity.
Daniel Lipman, group account director at Clemenger BBDO said: “The training and career opportunities our program offers are second to none – graduates are exposed to a diverse set of communications disciplines that provide them both insights and skills to survive in this wonderfully dynamic and ever changing industry. We’re looking for quick-thinking, driven and interesting individuals who are ready to challenge the status quo and lead the next wave of thinking our industry needs.”
Sydney Graduate 2015, Jess Gill, who graduated from the University of Sydney, said: “The Clemenger Group Graduate Program is fantastic, as at the end of the program you effectively have had work experience in two or three companies. It’s the only grad program in the industry that does this, and seeing as today’s campaigns are multifaceted – more digital, experiential and relying on PR for push – the experience across these different companies is extremely valuable. My time at Porter Novelli, BBDO, and Traffik have all been very different experiences, but have really complemented each other under a broader communications umbrella.”
