Each successful applicant will be offered a competitive salary, while being offered multiple rotations within different departments. They will have access to a whole host of personal development opportunities, plus the chance to get involved with the agency’s Employee Resource Groups, including Unite, Roots, Wellbeing and Re-think.
The Catalyst Academy is designed to accelerate development; catalysts rapidly take on real client responsibilities and can expect fast career progression. During their eighteen months with the agency, they will rotate through different specialisms and be assigned a mentor who will be there to support, guide and advise throughout. Catalysts will also gain essential industry qualifications from the IPA and the WPP AI Academy.
Inclusion and diversity are a fundamental part of Wunderman Thompson, and the agency recognises that talent comes in a variety of forms and from diverse backgrounds. It’s committed to making sure that their people reflect the diversity of the wider world and creating an inclusive environment where people feel they can belong. The agency invites applications from candidates of all identities and backgrounds.
The application process is open for five weeks and asks candidates to answer a range of questions linked to the agency’s key behaviours, assessed using a pre-determined scoring system across behaviours, technical ability, and storytelling. In an effort to level the playing field for those with conditions such as dyslexia, Wunderman Thompson will also allow candidates to answer questions however they like, not necessarily in writing, and will fast-track all candidates that identify as disabled.
