Graduate Recruitment Day
Want to work at a multi award-winning media agency that has recently been named as one of Campaign’s Best Places to Work and is ranked the No. 1 Media Agency in Europe by WARC 100? Then look no further!
Who we are…
Based in impressive offices in the heart of Southwark, Manning Gottlieb OMD is a key agency within the Omnicom Media Group network in the UK.
We strongly believe that the creative use of media is essential in bringing success for our huge client base. We pride ourselves on our award-winning work and the people within our agency that make this work happen. So far this year, our work has been recognised across multiple industry awards including Festival of Media Global and Campaign Media Awards.
Our culture is second to none. Our people describe our culture as fun, inclusive, with a small, family-feel, something which is admirable considering we are currently 380 people and still growing!
We take learning, development and wellbeing very seriously and are proud to have received the IPA’s CPD (Continuous Professional Development) Platinum Accreditation for 5 consecutive years. We were also recently awarded a prestigious HR Excellence Award for ‘Best Learning and Development Strategy’ for our ‘Gym and Spa’ programme. Both awards are a true reflection of our commitment to developing people’s careers.
As well as the award-winning ‘Gym and Spa’ programme, we also have an abundance of fantastic cultural initiatives that differentiate us from our competitors, with one of our favourites being ‘Tribes’. Based on our ambition to develop better connections across a growing agency, we created four Tribes, encouraging collaboration, and at times, some healthy competition across both work and social elements here at Manning Gottlieb OMD! Think of it like a Harry Potter style house system.
After some big new business wins recently, including the buying business for the Government, we are expecting big growth for the agency. We are therefore on the lookout for bright, passionate and highly organised graduates to join us across our agency in various entry-level positions. This is a great opportunity for individuals who are keen to get into the world of media advertising.
What we are looking for…
We are looking for people who like us have a passion for communication and who thrive on being in a fast-paced environment. You should be a great communicator, highly numerate, hold your work to a high standard and be a keen team player.
Successful candidates will need to be able to demonstrate the ability to pick up and learn about the ever-growing number of media channels, whilst understanding and adapting them to our clients’ businesses. You should be eager to learn, have a great eye for detail and be able to analyse data sets.
What’s in it for you…
Everybody joining Manning Gottlieb OMD in an entry-level role will embark on our MG Academy training programme, a key programme within ‘The Gym and Spa’.
Across the MG Academy programme there are approximately 30 hours of different sessions, all run by specialist experts. Each session covers a different area of the agency, so our MG Academy participants learn everything that the agency has to offer. From Paid Search and Mobile to Creativity and Media Buying, we’ve got it all covered, as well as softer skills such as client servicing and presenting. After six weeks of sessions, our MG Academy group is split in to various teams to work on a live pitch brief that is presented back to our Board Directors two weeks later.
We also make sure you are signed up to the IPA Foundation Certificate which falls shortly afterwards, giving everybody the opportunity to take an exam and gain an industry recognized qualification.

We look forward to hearing from you, and best of luck!
