WPP is the world leader in communications services. 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.WPP companies provide communications services to clients worldwide including 352 of the Fortune Global 500, all of the Dow Jones 30 and 77 of the NASDAQ 100. Collectively, over 190,000 people (including associates) work for WPP companies, out of 3,000 offices in 112 countries.
WPP is offering a number of 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 multi-disciplinary 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.
We are looking for people who are intellectually curious and motivated by the prospect of delivering high-quality communications services to their clients. All applicants should have completed an undergraduate degree (class 2:1 or above) or equivalent. Other than that, there are no set qualifications or criteria and we welcome applications from candidates irrespective of age, gender or background.
