Jump Start connects students with Perth's advertising industry and can result in employment in account management, strategic planning, production and media roles. It is designed to identify and nurture future industry talent by developing your practical skills base and industry networks.

We’re looking for curious, interesting and innovative people.

You might be studying law, accounting, architecture, philosophy, psychology or any of the more traditional paths into advertising or public relations. The fact you have applied yourself and increased your ability to think more broadly is exactly what we're after.

The Communications Council is not an advertising agency, we are Australia's national body representing the advertising industry with 160 corporations across Australia. Our member agencies include integrated agencies as well as specialists in advertising, public relations, digital, experiential, media and brand activation.

They seek and crave creative, innovative, team-oriented individuals who are passionate about the industry and are ready to roll up their sleeves and work shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the most talented professionals in the industry.

Our members take great pride in their work and look to us to attract and engage new talent to help them continue to be commercially successful. We do this in a new innovative way which is completely different to other graduate programs.

Jump Start provides the opportunity to network with industry leaders for up to 10 weeks before entering an agency and starting a career. We have thrown away the rule book of resumes and interviews and replaced them with new engaging ways to seek out creative talent.

Over the past seven years, more than a 130 Western Australian university graduates have completed Jump Start.

The content of the program was consistently rich and well organised from the start. The hands-on experience and local industry knowledge I gained really complemented by my three years at university and started my career in the industry"
Luke, now Business Director at Clemenger BBDO, Melbourne

"The program delivered relevant and practical content. With brilliant guest speakers, I'd recommended for all uni students keen to break into the advertising industry."
Stefan, now Associate Client Director, Carat UK London
