From the get-go, I felt welcomed by the Assembled Group as someone that was there to learn, not just another intern from one of those horror stories you hear at university. The flexibility and customisation of the Academy made sure the program was tailored to what I would be interested in and enjoy.
Being a recent grad is scary, nerve-wracking, and most of all exciting. I recently felt all these emotions in full force when I helped present a competitive pitch to a major client’s CEO and their team. What a pinch-me moment this was. If I could go back and tell myself everything I have achieved in my first year out of uni I wouldn’t believe it.
One of the highlights was being able to gain hands-on experience across various disciplines, ranging from strategically planning advertisements and optimising campaigns, to crafting compelling narratives, and exploring creative processes.
The academy forced me to think completely differently, as I jumped from agency to agency. I had to harness different skills and different types of expression as I worked with Narrative and Next. Although the experience pushed me out of my comfort zone, I have never learned so much in such a short amount of time.
We’re looking for self-motivated, ambitious students or recent graduates who are excited to gain real-world experience in the media and communications industry.
We recruit from a diverse range of degree backgrounds including communications, media, advertising, PR, design, marketing, business, and arts. To be eligible, you must be an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or hold a valid working visa.
You must also have completed or be currently completing an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in a relevant stream within the past two years and be available for at least three business days per week.
The Assembled Academy program consists of 3 x 4-week placements with 3 of our member agencies, providing the opportunity to gain experience across multiple industries and disciplines.
As an Academy member, you’ll have access to knowledge, skills, and mentorship from established creatives and communications professionals at each agency, helping you grow and thrive in your chosen field.
