Marketing communications is in the middle of a revolution. The old ways of working are changing faster now than the industry has ever seen before. As part of its 2017 entry level programme, Cohn & Wolfe London is looking for revolutionaries to help drive change.
Want to work for a global team, delivering award winning creative campaigns for clients that deliver at scale? Whether you’re an engineer, designer, data geek, aspiring news editor or biochemist, you could play a central role in this global agency’s future.
We spoke to Gemma McCartney, head of talent acquisition at Cohn & Wolfe EMEA, to find out more about the Launchpad programme and why Cohn & Wolfe is an exciting place to work.
Tell me more about Cohn & Wolfe and the work you do
At Cohn & Wolfe, we marry the magic of creativity with the potential offered by technology, to create unrivalled insight and immersive ideas. Whether it’s for clients in the consumer, corporate or healthcare space, we work together to create complete brand experiences and engagements, which deliver authentic value to people, brands and businesses.
Why would someone want to work at Cohn & Wolfe?
We’re changing what marketing communications means. Since 1970, our mantra has been "Dig Deeper, Imagine More" – now more than ever this means reimagining what we can offer our clients.
We’re excited by the potential of technology to enable ideas we’ve never had before. Whether it’s building contactless beer pumps for Barclaycard or inviting the world to call Sweden, we’re not just talking about this potential but actually making it happen for our clients. It’s what led us to win 17 Cannes Lions in the last year.

What kind of person are you looking for?
We need the people who are joining us to share this passion for the unimagined. Whether you’re an engineer, designer, aspiring news editor or biochemist, whether you’re based in Bradford or Billericay, you could be a central part in our agency’s future and we want to hear from you.
