This year, on the 28th September, sixty-six advertising and media agencies from around the UK threw open their doors to show exciting young talent what a career in advertising could offer them.
This builds on the success of last year’s inaugural event, which saw over 1,200 people attend events around the country and led to 12 full-time hires.
This year every agency has been paired with a local school to help build stronger relationships within the community and will run a bespoke event at their offices.
Says Julian Douglas, Vice Chairman, VCCP and IPA Council Diversity Champion: “It is incredibly important for the future of our industry that people from all backgrounds realise that advertising could offer them an incredibly exciting career. That’s why we launched Advertising Unlocked last year and we are excited that this year is going to be even bigger and better.”
