At BBH, one of the world’s most successful communications agencies, we believe talent should be nurtured. We know advertising is a difficult industry to crack, so we set up Home Grown to give talented young people from any background, their first experience of the industry. Our hope is that it will plant the seed in young people that it is the industry for them, propelling them into a long and successful career.
Home Grown applicants who pass interview stage are invited into the agency for a paid three month work placement.
Our placements are tailored to individual applicants. So if you know what area of the business you’re interested in you can spend your time here doing that, but we will aim to give everyone an experience in multiple departments. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with our creative initiative; Barn.
What's in it for you is the opportunity to kick-start your career by gaining some experience at one of the world's best communications agencies. Use your time here to make contacts, learn from the best and get advice on how to find your first full time job in the industry. What's in it for us is the opportunity to benefit from your fresh thinking and energy. If you're brimming with ideas about how to make fresh, interesting and above all great communications, whether your passion is strategy, creative, production, design, technology, or getting involved in a bit of everything, we'd love to hear from you.
If you know that you’re specifically interested in creative alone, it may be best for you to apply directly to Barn. Barn is a parallel initiative to Home Grown focussing on sourcing talented young people for our creative department
