Brand experience agency Because has launched a graduate talent scheme for young event professionals looking to establish a career in experiential marketing.

Four graduates will have the opportunity to gain six months of paid work experience, with two permanent roles on offer.

The graduates will initially spend three months in Because’s client account management team helping devise, plan and manage roadshows, sampling campaigns and immersive events for a range of brands.

This will be followed by three months in the field services management team, co-ordinating and liaising with The Staff Republic – the company’s in-house staffing agency.

Throughout their placement, the four candidates will receive training, support and exposure to different elements of the industry, and mentoring from highly experienced industry professionals.

Sharon Richey, chief executive at Because, said: "We believe a person’s qualities are as important as their experience. We recruit on DNA, someone having the right attitude, skill-set and ambition.

"We’re looking for pro-active self-starters, confident communicators and honest people who are passionate about working on projects which get people talking by creating motivating experiences. "

Because has set two deadlines for applications - 31 January for placements starting in March; and Friday 25 April for a second phase of placements starting in June.
