What does the ship involve?

During your time on board the Ship, you will get real life practical experience working within one of our teams.

You will spend four days a week working in a specific role and one day studying for an apprenticeship standard qualification which compliments the relevant team you are working within.

On top of gaining a formal qualification (and getting paid for it) you will get access to a range of additional training, mentoring and working together as an apprenticeship cohort on an exciting agency wide project.

We are recruiting across three different roles. Each have unique qualities, require different skills and serve the agency in a variety of ways.

Strategists are driven by the research and passionate in their quest to find truths and insights that solve any business' problem. They take a client brief and interrogate through research and idea generation to ensure it aligns with a client's business and communications objectives.

For this role you will need to be inquisitive, organised, able to immerse yourself quickly in new topics and be able to form a point of view, as well as being locked into cultural trends.

Number Three
