Congraduations to these marcom newbies

While many recent marcom graduates may still be rummaging around for that elusive job, 10 lucky newbies from across the country have been hand-picked from hundreds to take part in the inaugural intake of the Clemenger Group Graduate Programme.

As part of the programme, graduates rotate through Colenso BBDO, Clemenger BBDO, .99, Aim Proximity, Porter Novelli and Raydar over a period of three-months to get a taste of what each agency offers. Candidates will then be offered a six-month placement in their chosen agency, and paid an entry-level salary for this period. All going well, once the six months are up the graduates will be offered full-time positions within the Clemenger Group.

Clemenger Group’s chief executive Jim Moser describes the programme as “unique”, saying it “exposes young talent to the unrivalled scale and scope of individual companies and communications expertise within the Group”.

He says the programme is a way for Clemenger Group to invest in the future of the industry.

“We want to grow future leaders who have a fundamental understanding of a cross section of marketing communications disciplines. These are the folk who will succeed in a future where lines between historic communications disciplines are blurred or nonexistent.”

The graduate programme begins February 8th and will remain an annual fixture.

And the chosen young talents are...

  • Christie Horne (Victoria University)

  • Courtney Herbert (AUT)

  • Eloise Jack (Massey University – Wellington)

  • Eileen Cosgrove – Moloney (Massey University – Wellington)

  • Ida Levic (Victoria University)

  • Matthew Abbott (University of Otago)

  • Nick O’Donnell (AUT)

  • Rachel Arundel (Massey University – Wellington)

  • Bethany Omeri (Victoria University)

  • Hayley Smith (Victoria University)
