Entry-Level Opportunities

W+K is always looking for interesting talent, and strives to create various pathways to entry. Each year, two to three placement teams are enrolled, on the way to becoming junior creatives.

Additionally, The Kennedys programme gives seven newbie creatives a five-month crash course with the aim of finding out where their spark might take them in a creative career.

The team is always open to offering book crits and many members provide mentoring inside the company and externally.
