Because graduate talent scheme 2015


Are you a talented, ambitious graduate, keen to carve a career in the dynamic world of experiential marketing with one of the industry’s top agencies?


Here at Because we are looking to meet the industry’s brightest and most ambitious graduates. We are thus offering two lucky graduates the chance to gain six months paid work experience with a view to offering them permanent jobs at the end.

What does the placement involve?

The successful applicants will initially spend three months in our Client Account Management Team, helping devise, plan and manage roadshows, sampling campaigns and immersive events for a host of leading brands. This will be followed by three months in the Field Services Management team, coordinating and liaising with The Staff Republic – our frontline team of 1,500 Brand Ambassadors.

Throughout the placement, you will receive training, support and exposure to different elements of the industry, and mentoring from highly experienced industry professionals.

At the end of the 6 months we will offer a permanent role to an outstanding Graduate who has demonstrated the necessary skills and qualities to become part of the Because team. We will agree what the best position is within the agency in order to play to your strengths and allow you to thrive and progress.
