The Program

Wieden+Kennedy London wants to meet the next generation of creative thinkers in its city. We don’t care what school you went to, what your maths GCSE was, where your dad works; we just want to see how you think.

During our five-month creative crash course, you will learn from some of the best in the industry taking on workshops, tutorials, and field-trips while working on briefs and building a portfolio of your work.

No experience required. In fact, we prefer you don’t.

This opportunity is paid and full-time. You must be legally able to work in the UK from end of September 2018 to end of February 2019.

Who is Dave Kennedy?

David is the Kennedy in Wieden + Kennedy. When he and his partner Dan founded this agency – they had no idea what they were doing. This has been a reoccurring theme at W+K ever since. What they’ve discovered is that being fearless, a little clueless, and having a huge imagination – is the secret sauce to making amazing work.

David knows for a fact that creativity comes from everywhere, he grew up on an oil field and his father was a driller, he calls himself “third generation oil-field trash”.

Kennedy told us to “Go forth and do the unexpected” – That’s where you come in…
