WPP is the world’s largest communications services group. There are more than 160 companies within the Group, setting industry standards in Advertising; Media Investment Management; Data Investment Management; Public Relations & Public Affairs; Branding & Identity; Healthcare Communications; Direct, Digital, Promotion & Relationship Marketing and Specialist Communications.
We are manufacturers of communications ideas that help to build business for our clients, through creating and developing relationships with the people who buy and use their products and services. We do this through a demanding combination of hard work and flair; logic and intuition; left brain and right brain thinking.
Collectively, over 205,000 people (including associates and investments) work for WPP companies, in over 3,000 offices across 112 countries. WPP companies provide communications services to clients worldwide including 360 of the Fortune Global 500; all 30 of the Dow Jones 30 and 78 of the NASDAQ 100.
WPP was named Holding Company of the Year at the 2016 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity for the sixth year running. WPP was also named, for the fifth consecutive year, the World's Most Effective Holding Company in the 2016 Effie Effectiveness Index, which recognises the effectiveness of marketing communications. In 2016 WPP was recognised by Warc 100 as the World’s Top Holding Company (second year running).
WPP is offering a number of WPP Fellowships. The Fellowship comprises three one-year rotations with WPP companies, with each rotation chosen on the basis of the individual’s interests and the Group’s needs. The multidisciplinary rotation is unique in the industry and grooms future leaders in the range of marketing needs of our clients. Senior executive mentors, many of whom are members of the WPP Board of Directors, are assigned to provide overall career guidance.
Fellows spend three years on the Program: in each year they work in a different WPP company, in a different marketing communications discipline and, usually, on a different continent. Fellows are likely to work in a client management or planning role although some work on the creative side of an agency.
Career paths will vary and will depend on the particular skills and aptitude of each individual and the companies selected for the Program rotation. On completion of the Program, we work to find a position in the Group that takes advantage of the broad experience gained during the three years.
Long-term prospects within a WPP company are excellent, with many former Fellows now occupying senior management positions.
