Key Dates

The closing date for applications for the September 2019 intake of the London graduate development program is midnight (UK time) on Friday, 21st December 2018.

Application

Three steps to success

Step 1:  Intellectual curiosity

To apply, please construct an email that includes all of the below information:

  • Full name
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Area of interest (this will be one of the four specialisms within Teneo London. The options are: reputation management, campaigning, public affairs or financial communications. However, if you have no preference, please state ‘any.’)
  • Foreign language skills (please specify if spoken, written or both and proficiency.)
  • How you heard about our graduate programme.

As an attachment to your email, please include your CV plus a statement of no more than 400 words, demonstrating your thirst for knowledge. This needs to cover how in your everyday life you seek out knowledge and new experiences, and what insight, learning, and different ways of looking at the world have you gained from these experiences. We also want to know how you share that knowledge with those around you.

Remember, we are looking for intellectually curious people with a passion for problem solving, insight and creativity. At this stage, we want to hear about you, your interests and achievements to date. Later in the process we’ll ask you to tell us what you know about our company and the industry.

Application emails are to be sent to LON-startyourcareer@teneo.com 

Any emails sent without the ‘thirst for knowledge’ statement or a CV will not be accepted.

Closing date: Midnight on Friday, 21st December 2018.

Step 2: Understanding and passion for reputation management and communications

In mid-January, we will contact the candidates we would like to invite to the next stage – approximately 50. If selected, you will then be asked to:

  • Provide a short written (400 words max.) or 2-minute long video response (MP4 format) to demonstrate your understanding of the sector and the challenges and opportunities you see for communications. It might be helpful to think of an example of an interesting piece of work, or a campaign you have heard about and why it worked well.
  • We will then invite 35-40 candidates to come to our offices to learn about us, our work and our clients. This visit will also provide an opportunity to meet our staff and the graduate team. You will have a short interview, engage in a team exercise and we will try to answer any questions you may have.

Date for your diary: Wednesday 6th February 2019, all day.

Step 3:  Assessing potential

Of the candidates who impress us most, 15-20 will be selected to attend a full assessment day. The purpose of this is to simulate, as closely as possible, some of the activities you will be involved in if you join us. At times, you will be working in groups and at others individually. The only thing you are required to prepare in advance is a presentation in response to a selection of topics provided to you seven days beforehand.

You will find out whether we want you to join our team a few days after this final assessment day.

Date for your diary: Wednesday, 13th February 2019, all day.

Start date: The candidates we invite to join us will start in early September 2019.

Any questions?

For further information about our programme, please email LON-startyourcareer@teneo.com and one of the graduate recruitment team will get back to you.

Applicants must be available for both assessment dates listed above.

Please note that applications will be considered across the group but with a focus on our London office.

All applications require the candidates to work, live and possess the right to remain indefinitely in the UK. If you are unable to fulfill the criteria, we very much regret that we cannot consider your application.
