Saatchi & Saatchi is a global advertising agency network with over 6,500 staff working in 140 offices in 76 countries. It was founded in London in 1970, though is now headquartered in New York.
The company is known for its creative approaches to advertising campaigns, and has worked with some of the best-known brands in the world. Notable campaigns have included work for British Airways, Silk Cut, and the Conservative Party.
Saatchi & Saatchi is known for its non-traditional approach to recruitment, and the graduate programme is no different. Rather than offering the usual two-to-three year scheme, graduates are given six weeks to impress, before it’s decided whether they will go on to complete a programme. You’ll need to demonstrate creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, and strategic thinking.
Every year, the company unveils a new task as part of the recruitment process, in the hope of attracting top creative talent. Previous assignments have included creating a Facebook page and gathering as many ‘likes’ as possible, and turning someone unknown into an internet celebrity.
Successful candidates are rewarded with a competitive salary, and the much sought after opportunity to pursue a career with one of the biggest names in advertising.
