Sixth Form Student Completes Work Placement at Saatchi and Saatchi

“Before this placement, I had almost no understanding of what working in the creative industry entailed, let alone the variety of jobs available in single company. Working in M&C Saatchi I was exposed to how difficult the advertising industry truly is, and the number of people it takes to develop a client’s objective into an easy to understand advertisement.

I partook in variety of different tasks over the course of 5 days, from sitting in on a real meeting discussing creative tissue ideas, to visiting actual sound studios, to presenting a strategy brief.I learnt many transferable skills such as how to present to a group of people, and how to manage time effectively in order to meet client deadlines.
The work was challenging, often beyond my comfort zone, but nevertheless, an experience that I am grateful to have had, and would gladly do again. “
