The announcement:

Applications are now being accepted for The Communications Council’s 2017 Graduate Program, which calls on graduates from all disciplines who are looking to launch a career primarily in an account management or planning role in advertising or PR.

Running for more than 30 years, the program recruits on behalf of member agencies in NSW and VIC, and offers successful applicants placement experience, access to industry contacts, and a structured training plan which includes completing the international qualification, the IPA Foundation Certificate.

Tony Hale, CEO of The Communications Council said: “This is a long-running and highly sought-after program which has been the launchpad for some of our industry’s biggest names. As a fast-paced, creative industry, we attract hundreds of applications from bright graduates every year, so you need to stand out. We are looking for problem solvers and innovative thinkers from a diverse range of degree backgrounds – even if you haven’t considered a career in advertising or PR before, this could be for you. ”
