What we want

We're looking for unique characters

Welcome to our graduate program, not just for graduates. Every person brings a unique skill set to the table which is why we want to hear from you.

We are looking for creative minds. Unique skillsets. People that are forever curious and ready to push boundaries. Those who are ready to think differently in order to make the new normal.

The Clemenger BBDO graduate program is a paid 10-month immersive program where successful “characters” will gain first hand experience in account management, planning, production and creative, via training rotations for the first 4 months.

The recruitment process is in two stages – the first is answering our questions to get to know you. This stage is open until 5pm Tuesday November 30.

We will then shortlist candidates, conduct interviews and successful applicants will commence work with us in February 2022.

Please note, you will need to have the right to work in Australia to participate in the Clemenger BBDO graduate program.

Application Process

We want to know what makes you a unique character.

To best assess this we have some video based questions to get to know you and what you are passionate about as well as assess why you want a career in the creative industry.

And to help us understand your ability to do the job, we have some skill based questions too.

Questions and answers

What you
need to know

What's account service?

The account service department is responsible for the client and oversees the whole creative process from taking a brief to delivery of the finished project, working closely with all of the specialist departments in the agency and talking with the clients every day.

What's planning?

The planning department is responsible for account strategy – from top level business strategy of a client to the more specific strategy for a given marketing campaign. They work closely with the client and account service to define the problem and develop the brief, and then with creatives to ensure their ideas are in the right space.

What's production?

The production department is responsible for taking the approved idea and turning it into a real thing, whether that's a film, an app, an event, a poster, a website, or anything else. They work closely with the creatives to ensure their vision is brought to reality, and account service to ensure client objectives are met.

What would you be doing?

You'll spend the first 4 months rotating around the key departments in the agency. The remainder of the program will be spent in one of these departments, chosen based on an evaluation of your skills and performance in the rotation. You'll be supporting the teams in the delivery of real work for clients, learning the ropes and taking on more responsibility as time progresses.

What is the duration of the program?

It's a 10-month long paid program, with the first 16 weeks being training rotations, thereafter you will be placed in a department on an internship basis for the remainder of the program.

What happens at the end of the program?

If you've had a good year then we'll certainly want to keep you and will offer you a permanent position. That's why the program exists and in previous years most graduates have been offered a job. Worst case scenario you'll leave with some amazing experience at the most successful agency in Australia.

Are there any minimum criteria for application?

You don't need to have any specific academic qualifications. In this instance we're more interested in how you think, how you behave and the kind of person you are. We're looking for people that will thrive in a fast paced agency environment, so enthusiasm, dedication and good communication are a must. But beyond that, it's up to you.

How will you judge my application?

This is always going to be a bit subjective, but we want to get a feeling for who you are, how you think, how you've got where you are, and how you might fit in the agency.

Could I get a job as a creative?

Unfortunately no, that's not what this program is about.
