MARKETING GRAD OPPORTUNITY
A great opportunity exists for anyone studying marketing or in the business client-side who might be interested in giving an agency role a go. Perceptive have announced its 2022 Talent Programme intake with The Clemenger Group, which hires grads full-time. Amy Galvin and Jayson Soma have joined Perceptive after internships in the 2020 Clemenger Group Grad Programme. Amy has been hired as an Account Manager in the Client Services team, while Jayson joins the Creative & Content team as a Junior Designer after transitioning from a creative role at Colenso. The two recent hires come with the announcement of the 2022 Clemenger Talent Programme, which has transformed from what was known as the Clemenger Group Grad Programme. With a clear focus on diversity and inclusion within the Clemenger Group, the decision was made to rework the existing graduate programme so that anyone can apply for a position on it, whether they have a degree or not. “We’ve always made it a priority to foster new talent within Perceptive and we’re excited that we’ve been able to hire both Amy and Jayson off the back of the 2020 Clemenger Group Grad Programme,” says Perceptive’s General Manager Oliver Allen. “We’re really looking forward to opening our doors again to curious and talented individuals who’re interested in a career within the marketing, communications and insights industry.” The 2022 Clemenger Talent Programme is a nine-month fixed-term employment where selected candidates will spend a few months rotating across eight agencies from the Clemenger Group before settling down for a six-month internship within one of them. “Although completing a grad program during a pandemic was never going to be ideal, it was a fantastic opportunity to discover what disciplines I enjoyed within the industry and where I could see myself working,” says Jayson.“i’ve been lucky enough to land a creative job with Perceptive, who have continued to mentor and upskill me in the areas I’m interested in.” “The past year has been extremely rough for graduates and talented individuals, so it’s exciting to see opportunities like this being given to the next generation of creatives and marketers, especially those who might have struggled with traditional education, yet have the talent to make it in this industry,” says Amy. A shortlist of candidates selected for the 2022 intake will be announced in September/october 2021.
