At Edelman, we offer a rotational Graduate Scheme for anyone looking to kick start their career in Marketing and Communications.
For 12 months, you’ll get to experience life in each of our practices with the chance to develop your skills and work with colleagues and clients from every team. After the 12 months are up, you then get to tell us which practice you’d most like to settle in.
On Thursday 26th November, we unveiled the Edelman Graduate Scheme 2016 by throwing our very first Grad Launch party. Over 150 graduates attended, for the opportunity to meet some of our people (including previous Grad joiners), check out our offices and discover what it is that makes Edelman a great place to work.
Alongside food, drinks and networking, we put on a variety of interactive entertainment; attendees were encouraged to share their photos on Instagram using #EdelGrads which were then printed instantly, they could visit the Edelman #TweetShop to tweet and receive their favourite sweet treat, could experience a world in virtual reality using Oculus Rift, or could find out which Edelman team might suit them through a specially designed Edelman Intelligence quiz. We also had Global Street Art creating a ‘Make Your Mark’ graffiti-off in Footlights, which gave graduates the opportunity to express their views on PR and the Edelman brand.
The event was an enormous success and it was wonderful to see so many excited students travel from all over the UK, including Leeds, Birmingham, Oxford, Manchester and London. It was brilliant to see the enthusiasm and excitement in the room we are really looking forward to seeing all the applications come in.
You can find out more about the Graduate Scheme here, which is available to anyone in their final year of university or who has graduated in the last three years.
