WRG are looking for people who are passionate about starting a career in experiences to join our paid 12 month internship.
In Year ONE you will rotate through WRG’s specialisms, spending time in each of our teams; Environments, Events, Technical Production and Delegate Experience (Logistics).
In Year ONE, individuals will be based at one of our core WRG offices. In the UK we’re based in London or Manchester, and in North America we’re in Philadelphia.
During your Year ONE placement you should also get the opportunity to travel, as 80% of our work is international (COVID-19 permitting).
At the end of Year ONE, you can expect to have a fully rounded view of what working at an experiential agency is like, as well as having a clear idea of the myriad roles available. The internship will help you learn where your experiential passions lie, helping you better plan for your future career.
At the end of the programme, WRG hopes to offer as many full time job opportunities as possible to the Year ONE graduates.
There are no prerequisites for Year ONE applicants. You don’t need to have any experience within events or exhibitions or have completed any prior qualifications.
This programme is a great opportunity to take your first steps into this fun and exciting industry.
We’re looking for anyone over the age of 18 – you could be a school leaver, a college or university graduate, or simply looking for a change from your current role.
All we ask is that you possess the following qualities:
Attention to detail
A great work ethic
Curiosity and a willingness to learn
Energy and enthusiasm
A people person
A problem solver
At WRG, our mission is to create experiences that inspire the lasting change the world needs.
