Here it is. Our unique plan to get you to the top of your game: The M Grad Programme. If you have the enthusiasm and talent, then we have a place for you.
THE M GRAD PROGRAMME
The M Grad Programme is GroupM’s graduate programme. Every year, we hire around 20 of the most curious and excited graduates and offer them a full-time job in one of our agencies. Not only will you get to spend your days with our most inspiring people, but in the first nine weeks you will get to experience every aspect of how a media agency works.
You’ll work within an agency team and receive a ton of training courtesy of the best practitioners in the industry. There are offsite trips, and the opportunity to work on a client brief and create a campaign from scratch. And after all that, we’ll let you loose on client teams and you’ll continue to learn on the job as a Media Assistant.
NOW FOR THE DETAILS
The M Grad Programme starts on 29 January 2018.
It’s different from the grad schemes that some agencies offer because it has no end date. It’s not a 6 or 12-month internship. We really would like you to stay with us!
You’ll be supported by an agency mentor to guide you through your first few months.
You’ll attend quality training sessions in which you’ll learn just about everything you need to know about the industry, and you’ll have the opportunity to network with agency employees and other graduates.
You’ll get to dive straight into agency life, working within an agency team, directly with our clients.
If you work in search marketing or SEO, you can take the Google Fundamentals Exam (GAF) at no cost – so you also receive a recognised qualification.
You’ll work in teams on a client brief and create a campaign from scratch. Then you’ll present your work to agency employees.
The M Grad Programme is based in Sydney and Melbourne, but it’s open to all graduates around Australia. You need to be in your final year of university or have already graduated. We don’t mind what university you have been to or what course you have studied – and you definitely don’t need a degree in Advertising, Marketing or Business. We don’t care where in the world you come from as long as you are legally allowed to work in Australia. We want to hear from you!
