The Kennedys 2021: The Year of the Sell Out 🤑

Give up on your dreams of being the next Tarantino 🎞 or Kendrick 🎤 and use that creative superpower 🧠 for a paycheque 💸 and a job making ads for Nike.

The Kennedys is back IRL and we’re looking to steal eight of the finest creative thinkers the next generation has to offer.

CVs are for losers so we don’t care what GCSEs you got, if you went to uni or not, where your dad works or even what you look like. We just want to see how you think and that you’re ready to drop what you are doing, sell out and transform your pure, beautiful creativity into a career as a full-fledged advertising creative.

You’ll learn the secret rules of the trade in the best agency in the world. You will attend workshops and tutorials while working on briefs that will build a real portfolio of your work getting you ready for a real full time job.

The course will run for five months from 1st November 2021, in-person at our London office, 9am-6pm, Monday to Friday. You’ll even be paid London Living Wage while we help train you up – literally the opposite to uni.

To be eligible you must be able to: legally work in the UK, attend the course in-person at our Shoreditch office, complete ALL of the application questions and be available on 13th October to attend an assessment day in our office.

Are you ready to give up on your unrealistic creative dreams? If so, #SellOut and APPLY NOW
