About Ogilvy:

Ogilvy was founded in 1948 by David Ogilvy. David created a culture that deeply respects and cares about its people and clients. Our mission is to inspire people and brands to make an impact and we are committed to attracting, growing, and retaining the best talent in the industry.

About the Role:

David Ogilvy famously said, "The way up the ladder is open for everyone."

We're looking for talent who are insatiably curious and observant. Creative problem-solvers and "dot connectors" who love new experiences and sometimes feel like there's never enough time for all they want to see, read, make, and DO.

Ogilvy creative interns get briefed on real client projects with the opportunity to compete and/or collaborate with all levels of our creative team including ACDs, CDs, possibly even CCOs. Since it's all real client work, an intern's project load is based on the actual client work flowing through the office during the 12 weeks of the program.

Creative interns act as our... junior level staff, so they must be ready to jump right in, deliver on their craft and prove themselves!

The intention at the end of our program is to offer full-time or freelance, as long the agency finances and workflow make it possible. Historically, we've had as high as a 70% conversion rate.

Bottom line: the overall goal is for interns to walk away with real client experience and work in their books.

What We're Looking For

You write a lot. And read a lot! You know how to think in big conceptual ideas, but also understand the craft and nuance of copywriting. And at Ogilvy, you could be working on categories from banking to beauty to beverages - we want to see you can write to different audiences. And remember, there are no dead mediums, only bad writing.

The Fine Print

The deadline for applications is March 8, 2023. Ogilvy Creative Internships are available in Toronto and Montreal. This year's program allows the opportunity to be in-office and we would prefer candidates to be within a commutable distance. This is a full time, paid internship that runs from May to August.

How We'll Support You

Ogilvy celebrates its people. Fully. Enthusiastically. Unhesitatingly. We'll empower you with the tools you'll need to succeed. We'll give you the autonomy to seek out new paths and better ways of doing things. We'll support you with colleagues who are experts in their disciplines, drawn from across the Ogilvy network. And we'll provide opportunities for you to do work of which you'll be proud, with people you'll be proud to call your teammates.

Ogilvy is an equal opportunity employer and considers applicants for all positions without regard to race, color, religion or belief, sex, age, national origin, citizenship status, marital status, military/veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental disability. We believe in creating a dynamic work environment that values diversity and inclusion and strives to recruit a diverse slate of candidates to help us achieve that goal
