Advertising & Communications is an industry that's been around for over 150 years. It's a large part of how businesses grow, how social change is created, and how governments communicate.
It's changed a lot over the years. We're an industry at the front of technological change and we have to change with it. That's what makes it an exciting industry to be part of.
It's a global industry – enabling you to work all over the world.
We are also an industry that strives for diversity around the table. Advertising feeds from, and informs, culture. To do our best work, we need diverse perspectives to collaborate.

The entry qualifications are as diverse as the people. Some people have Communications degrees. Most don't. They're lawyers, engineers, artists, statisticians, linguists. Even the odd philosopher.

So, if you're innately curious, want to make a difference for the businesses or causes that you work on, want an exciting career that enables you to travel, and maybe don't quite fit the usual mould, this could be the perfect industry for you.
