TBWA\Melbourne has announced the opening of its application process for its 2021 Fresh Fries advertising apprenticeship program. The entry-level recruitment initiative is a full-time paid program, which will see two successful recruits work across each of the agency’s business units over the year.
Initiated in 2019, Fresh Fries is now entering its third year – and has seen the agency offer all four recruits ongoing full-time roles beyond the initial 12-month program.
Candidates will begin their application via Facebook Messenger to submit an expression of interest. From there they will be prompted with five unique questions and tasks, all asked in real time for response.
TBWA\Melbourne is welcoming applicants who have a passion for creativity, marketing, and advertising – calling on both graduates and those who have taken a less traditional route to apply.
Says Ricci Meldrum, managing director, TBWA\Melbourne: “We are incredibly excited to kick off the Fresh Fries advertising apprenticeship for 2021. After the year that’s been, it presents a fantastic opportunity for aspiring creatives and communications professionals in the community to join our teams. The program also ensures we continue to build upon our diverse pool of talent.
“Its aim is to give our apprentices experience across each of our agency teams and all facets of the communication and advertising industry to help them identify their interests and ultimately find the role best suited for them.”
The Fresh Fries will work with the business management, project management and production, creative and design, and strategy teams, as well as with TBWA’s PR agency, Eleven.
