Career Kickstarter is for everyone

Whatever your background, wherever you are in your work life, if you’d like to get to know about agency life, this is for you.

Not got a degree? Doesn’t matter.

Got a masters? Doesn’t matter.

This is for everyone whether you’re looking for your first break or trying to shift careers.

We welcome and encourage applications from people from underrepresented backgrounds (gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, neurodiversity and socioeconomic).

What you need to prepare

This is your time with the team, so we suggest coming prepared with a few questions and have your Microsoft Teams set up ahead of the meeting. Be logged in, camera on and ready to go so we don’t miss a second to chat.
