No hamsters harmed in this Grad Scheme


We Are Social is a conversation agency. We help brands to listen, understand and engage in conversations in social media.

We’re a new kind of agency that combines an innate understanding of social media with digital, PR and marketing skills. We are entirely focused on innovative, creative and effective social media marketing and communications and we like to think we are getting rather good at it.

We’re an independent outfit that started out in June 2008, and since then we’ve done great work, won plenty of awards and built an international team of over 400.

With offices in New York, London, Paris, Milan, Munich, Singapore, Sydney and São Paulo we work with clients worldwide including adidas, Heinz, Unilever, Heineken, eBay, Jaguar, Intel and Expedia on global, regional and local projects.

What makes us so great? Our people! So now comes the time where we feel it’s the right time to launch our first ever Grad Scheme. But what is this new UK Grad Scheme all about? Well, we need the most amazingly bright people to join the team here at We Are Social in London, and where better to find our next social media superstars than from the latest batch of talented graduates?

As our video shows on the Grad Scheme page, we believe The Paper CV is History, so instead we came up with a truly social job application. We’re asking everyone to shoot a 15 second Instagram video introducing themselves, making us smile, along with a tweet to impress us, using the hashtag #IamSocial.

In return for giving up student freedom, we will promise to develop our first ever official UK Grad trainees with a robust, bespoke training programme, the opportunity to work for top global brands, a competitive salary and lots of great benefits, including an awesome annual ski trip (#weareskiing 2014 will give you an insight in case you missed it). Ultimately our aim is to be the defining part of every employee’s career.

If you’re up to the challenge, all the details on how to apply can be found here.

Roll on the applications. Little Shredder (our official hamster) and I are ready to be wowed!
