Launching our 2016 Grad Scheme: #IamSocial

Our News

New year, new you, new job. Great.

No, seriously, we’re all swamped with our own New Year’s Resolutions and we can guarantee that if you’re coming to the end of your degree or internship, one of yours is to score an awesome Graduate role. Here’s your chance.

At We Are Social, we achieved a huge amount last year, picking up loads of awards for our work and our performance as an agency, including recognition from The Lovies, Cannes Lions, The Webbys and The Cristal Awards to name but a few.

We also ran our second Grad Scheme; shortlisting over 150 applications down to just 20 successful candidates who we invited to our assessment day, from which we picked our three amazeballs grads – Nick, Alexi and Meghan.

They spent their first few months with us getting to know the agency, learning how we work, what our departments really do and understanding the wide variety of the platforms we use on a daily basis, with help from their visits to the HQs of the likes of Twitter and Facebook.

But don’t take our word for it,  you can check out their blog posts to see what it’s really like being a We Are Social grad. Nick, gives the down-low on their first month, Meghan tells about some exciting client work (and shares a cheeky gif of Ryan Gosling for good measure), and Alexi rounds everything off with the finale. They are all now in their permanent roles in our Editorial, Strategy and Research & Insight teams, working on plenty of high profile clients. Not a bad way to start your career.

So, with these three already on board and settled in, we’ve launched our 2016 #IamSocial Grad Scheme to hire more top talent into our ever-growing agency. There will be no tea making duties (unless you’re offering). Instead you’ll be an essential part of the team, getting a real taste of what we do, and more importantly, what you’d like to do. Then at the end of your rotation, you’ll get to join one of our amazing departments in a permanent role. All you’ve got to do is send us a tweet and an Instagram video to show off who you are, and answer our BIG question… see our application page for all the gory details.

Applications are now open and can be found here. The closing date is 19th February 2016 and successful candidates will be invited to attend our assessment day on 23rd March 2016. Those who are then offered a place on our Grad Scheme will start in September 2016.

Now, it’s over to you.

What are we looking for? The answer is simple: show us a glimpse of who you are, your passion, personality and energy. If you’re stuck for ideas, check out the videos our current grads Nick, Alexi & Meghan have made for inspiration.

In addition to the Instagram videos and tweets, we also want to test your brains a little this year and we’re looking for you to apply your social thinking skills to a past campaign of ours. Don’t be afraid to go big – we can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

If you’re stumped, our 2015 grads are on hand to offer their advice – tweet them @AlexiGunner, @meghanpeterson and @NickCavSocial, or drop us an email.

Good luck!
