Junior Account Executive Scheme 2021
We are very excited to announce our 2021 Junior Account Executive Scheme – a brilliant opportunity for any aspiring PRs, social media or marketing comms hopefuls looking to kick start their careers in our fantastic industry.
We’re looking for up to ten JAEs to join us for a full six-months starting in June/July 2021. Please note this is a PAID placement with a genuine aim to hire you permanently into the business!
We’re looking for the best, most creative, forward-thinking candidates out there. Our doors are open to all backgrounds and experience. We’re not judging you on whether you have a degree or not: we’re simply concentrating on you and your talent.
Brands2Life is ‘the agency for the brands transforming our world’: a multi-award-winning, digitally-led, independent agency majority owned by an employee trust and led by its Co-Founders Giles Fraser and Sarah Scales. Today we have over 150 staff in London, New York and San Francisco. Defined by Provoke Media as ‘one of the decade’s defining UK agencies’ we were voted Large Agency of the Year 2020 by both PRWeek and the PRCA National Awards. Winning PRWeek’s “Best Places to Work 2019,” our JAE scheme was also awarded PRWeek’s ‘Best Internship Scheme’ in 2020.
The Brands2Life Junior Account Executive Scheme offers a full-time placement within one of our brilliant teams (Consumer, Business and Technology, Corporate and Business Communications, Health and Wellbeing or Social). From day one you will be assigned to a portfolio of clients where you will gain hands-on experience and regular training from some of the best communications and digital professionals in the industry. At the end of the six months you will be promoted to Account Executive in a permanent role (subject to a successful probation). Almost a quarter of the team at Brands2Life started their careers here and two of them are now on the board!
Like most agencies we’ve ensured our Southwark office conforms to socially-distanced guidelines, so when restrictions lift, you’ll get the chance to come in and work alongside your colleagues. We’ve also extended our WFH policy to allow people to do so as much as they wish for the foreseeable future and will allow our teams to WFH up to three days a week when business life returns to normal.
This placement will suit individuals with a specific desire to work within the communications industry. We are looking for enthusiasm, drive and creativity as well as a basic understanding of what communications is; who Brands2Life are; and the work we do. You do not need to have experience in communications already, but you will need to convince us you will make the most of this opportunity.
To apply to the scheme please email your CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. If successful, you will be contacted and invited to take part in a first stage phone interview.
Prospective candidates must be available to take part in a phone interview during the week commencing the 19th April.
All successful candidates will be contacted via email by the 17th April. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we are unfortunately unable to get back to each individual but as always will try our best.
We wish you the best of luck!
