We have a simple mission, to work with our client partners to make brilliant work that works. We are defined by having a highly interactive, open way of working – we have a fast-moving, fast-working and collaborative culture. Clients and the public respond powerfully to our work because we unlock the reasons why brands are loved and then create inspiring and hugely effective communications.

Our office is based in Paddington, and we offer a number of great benefits, such as subsidised food and drink, free breakfast and exercise classes, as well as regular access to a GP, Physiotherapist and Nutritionist. We also offer 25 days’ paid holiday per year.

At adam&eveDDB we want to make sure that whoever you are, wherever you are from and whatever you believe, you feel completely confident being you. To help achieve this we have core agency groups and initiatives, each with an ambition to improve inclusion through positive action.

About the apprenticeship:

You will spend four days per week working at adam&eveDDB, and spend the remaining 20% of your time studying towards the ‘Junior Content Producer’ apprenticeship training standard. This will be a mixture of classroom learning, online learning, projects and meetings with your tutor. Through the training, you will learn content planning, content development, writing, storyboarding, capturing and editing of content across a range of digital and traditional media, formatting for distribution of content via web or print, evaluation of success of a campaign and a broad understanding of the media landscape.

For the first six months of your placement, you’ll work within our Project Management team to get a thorough understanding of the agency and the advertising process. You’ll then spend six months working in Integrated Production, followed by three months in cain&abel, our content division.

About the role:

  • Booking post production and sound studio session times
