The Communications Council

Want a career in Advertising or PR?

Are you ready to work in an exciting, innovative, fast-paced environment while receiving valuable hands-on experience? Are you a story teller and specialist who can become a generalist in this fragmented world of marketing communications? Are you focused and ambitious? Are you able to identify opportunities? If this sounds like you, and you’re ready to jump-start your career in marketing communications and work on challenging projects then read on as this program is for you.

We’re looking for curious, interesting and innovative people. People who are interested in contributing to the ever-changing advertising, PR and marcomms world. Not creative people per se (we have AWARD School for budding copywriters and art directors) but people who use their creativity to solve marketing problems. We want those who use both sides of the brain. You might have done law, accounting, architecture, philosophy, psychology or any of the more traditional paths into advertising and PR.

About the Communications Council

We’re not an advertising agency so who are we and what is our role running a graduate program?

It’s as simple as this: we are Australia’s peak industry body representing marketing communications agencies, with a member base comprising more than​ 120 agencies across a diverse range of disciplines that are at the forefront of commercial creativity. We create a footprint across the increasingly integrated world of creative, digital, healthcare, design, direct marketing, promotion, public relations, creative, production and strategic planning.

Our members take great pride in their work and look to us to attract and engage new talent to help them continue to be commercially successful. They seek and crave creative, innovative, team-oriented individuals who are passionate about the industry and are ready to roll their sleeves up to work shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the most talented professionals in the industry.

How are we any different to any other graduate program?

How many graduates have the opportunity to be mentored by 40 different leaders? This is what stands us apart from other graduate programs. Our member agencies include integrated agencies as well as specialists in healthcare advertising, public relations, digital, experiential and brand activation. Our program provides a broad range of opportunities for a diverse group of candidates.

The Communications Council Graduate Program has a long and proud history of over 30 years with nurturing graduate talent. In 2016 we placed 33 into advertising agencies in Sydney and Melbourne. Some of the participating agencies over the past few years have included
