We are on the hunt for 11 talented media savvy apprentices to join us here at Mediabrands and Kinesso. During your apprenticeship, you will study towards a Level 3 qualification in Media and Advertising and have the chance to work with some of the industry’s most exciting clients and people.

Your apprenticeship will last for 20 months and during that time you will rotate across the business learning about the advertising process from start to finish. You will have the opportunity to work across multiple media channels for some of our largest clients, helping them to achieve their business objectives. We will throw you in to the deep end to give you a real flavour of what it is like to work in a media agency.  

In addition to the support from HR and your line manager, you will receive monthly 1:1 professional coaching visits with a Development Coach and access self-guided leaning via the apprenticeship providers platform. You will also attend monthly workshops with industry experts and develop skills such as time management, creative problem solving and effective communication.
