Leo Burnett Sydney, Diageo Australia paid internship on offer for graduates

Leo Burnett Sydney and Diageo Australia are giving flight to ‘The Nest’, an industry-first  program offering ambitious, talented students and recent graduates a paid marketing and advertising internship spanning both businesses.

Looking to give students the premium opportunity to get a leg-up on the career ladder, the program allows students access to invaluable experience and networking opportunities working with some of the industry’s best creative, strategic and business minds.

Selected interns will undertake 12 weeks of paid work across both businesses, broken down to six in the account management team at Leo Burnett and six weeks as part of the brand marketing, planning or innovation teams at Diageo Australia. The Nest is set to run twice a year.

“We value the partnerships we have with our agencies and The Nest is a powerful way to build the next generation of marketing professionals to work seamlessly between client and agency,” says Matt Bruhn, Diageo Australia marketing and innovation director.

“For some, The Nest will be the ultimate platform to springboard their careers as they will get exposed to one of the most awarded client-agency partnerships in Asia Pacific,” agrees Pete Bosilkovski, client services director Leo Burnett Sydney.

Applications are now open for tertiary students in their last year of study, or those who have recently graduated, in a related field including advertising, marketing, business, design or communications. Check the facebook for all the details.

The top 20 shortlisted respondents will be invited for an interview with a panel of Leo Burnett and Diageo Australia representatives and four successful applicants will be offered internships.
