Communications Council graduate trainee program opens for applications

The Communications Council’s graduate trainee program is now open for applications.

The announcement:

Applications are now open for The Communications Council’s 2014 Graduate Trainee Program, offering successful graduates full time positions in advertising and public relations agencies in Sydney and Melbourne.

A unique launch pad and an inspiring learning environment for graduates, the program provides critical training as well as exposure and interaction with industry leaders from across all disciplines.

Over the past 34 years, the program has delivered some of the top names in the business today, including STW Group’s Mike Connaghan and Matthew Melhuish, BMF founding partner and executive chairman, and CEO of Enero. More recently, 2006 graduate, Mollie Hill (ex BMF and H&T), rose as the brains behind the Dove ‘Real Beauty Sketches’ campaign, which won big at Cannes this month.

The core program consists of a five-day, live-in, intensive Summer School, which includes the AdSchool Foundation certificate, at Sydney University Village or Trinity College at Melbourne University in late January and early February next year. Summer School is followed by monthly lectures hosted at participating agencies, giving grads the chance to be inspired by industry leaders across a broad range of disciplines.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 11th October, and selection days will be held in early November, with over 50 places available for successful candidates. Information nights will also take place in Melbourne on Thursday, 26th September at Leo Burnett, and in Sydney on Tuesday, 1st October at M&C Saatchi, with both evenings starting at 6:00pm.

For those who think they have what it takes to succeed in this fast-paced, dynamic industry, visit The Communications Council website for more details here, or contact The Communications Council’s Gawen Rudder on Gawen@communicationscouncil.org.au or 02 8297 3807.
