What we look for?
The 4 selected graduates will be those who best exude our company values:
1. Curiosity – We want people who have a thirst to know more; who are not content to get by with what they are told; who find out things for themselves, and delight in applying them; who are able to turn knowledge into better insight.
2. Agility – We want people who are nimble in the way they behave who are not content to follow their normal instincts as to what’s good or bad; who have infectious enthusiasm, and the ability to stimulate others with it.
3. Bravery – We want people who act quickly and decisively; who are prepared to take risks now and then; who know when to make a stand when it’s needed; and who can help others carry the day.
4. Accountability – We want people who keep their promises; who see things through to the end; who know where the buck stops; who don’t hide from the consequence of what they are doing; and who take a pride in achieving goals
5. Common sense – We want people who display a sound judgement; who are pragmatists; who can think for themselves and find elegant and simple solutions that don’t come from text books; who keep their feet on the ground even whilst they reach for the stars.
How is the selection workshop structured?
The selection workshop is run on a Saturday in the Agency; by 4 of our leads, our HR team and 4 of our Mentors:
Welcome and introduction to the day and the team – ice breaker games. Everyone will be given name badges.
|09:30 – 11.30||
Orientation Sessions - Get to know Ogilvy
The group will be broken into teams of 5 and will rotate around the agency to learn more about the 4 departments from our leaders and mentors. They will learn about how the department works and what particular skill sets are required for that division. Here they will be encouraged to ask questions and participate as much as possible.
|11.30 – 12.00||
The elevator pitch BRIEFING - get to know you!
The teams will then be briefed on the ‘2 min pitch’ task; which is our opportunity to get to know each other. Each person will be given 2 minutes to tell us a little bit about themselves; which department appealed to them most and why. (Our leads will be taking notes). We will also give them pointers on what we are looking for and some top “elevator pitch” tips.
|12.00 – 1.00||
We will order pizza in for lunch – this is where people can rehearse their elevator pitches if they feel ambitious or simply get to know others.
|1:00 - 2:00||
The elevator pitch – The pitches!
We will then listen to the pitches and give immediate feedback.
|2:00 - 3:00||
Our Consulting and Creative Leads will then be giving the group an insider’s view on how to develop an and present a proposal – and tips and tricks of coming up with winning ideas.
|3:00 – 4:00||
The pitch – brainstorm
We will then break the group up into teams of 5; give them a laptop; a meeting room and an hour to answer the brief.
Refreshments will be served out in the foyer.
|4:00 – 5:00||
The pitch– presentations
Each team will have only 15 mins to present – every member must speak at least once.
As this is going on; our HR manager will invite our recruits one by one to the next room for a final interview.
At the end of the day; we will announce the 4 winners; give them their T-Shirts.
