Are you a graduate looking to make your first move into the advertising industry? If so, we have an exciting opportunity at The Specialist Works that will certainly be of interest. Our 6 month Business Development Graduate Scheme is a fantastic chance to learn your trade alongside an experienced team of highly talented individuals, as part of a rapidly growing advertising agency.
Initially we will give you exposure to all departments across the business: Media Buying, Content Production and Data Analysis, making you fully acquainted with the day-to-day runnings of a Next Generation TV advertising agency.
Once your training is complete you will move into a Business Development role, with a primary objective of generating new business with prospective clients – and strong performance in this area will land you a full time contract with The Specialist Works as Business Development Executive.
Here’s what our most recent Business Development Graduate, Pete Legg, has to say of his experience thus far:
“The Specialist Works is a great place to work, especially for a graduate. The vast amounts of experience within the company along with the relaxed, friendly and open environment has really helped to accelerate my learning of the industry and kick start my business development career in the TV/advertising industry.
The Specialist Works’s graduate programme is the perfect place to start after coming out of university, offering you plenty of opportunity to grow and progress through excellent guidance.”
