Do you want to join our award-winning agency for a year of learning while you gain real-world experience?
We are looking for 12 paid learners in either Cape Town or Johannesburg with a hunger and passion for digital advertising.
You will join one of the core teams of Native VML (creative, UX, project management, media, client services, strategy, social media, coding, QA, marketing and content) – Don’t recognize some of the above departments? No worries as that’s the whole point of a graduate leanership…!
You will get the opportunity to work in a bustling, innovative digital agency for 12 months, and be exposed to various areas of the business while getting training and obtaining an NQF level 4 in Marketing to add to your CV.
Who are We?
NATIVE VML is Africa’s leading full-service digital advertising agency. We have over 160 team members and have offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town. We are a strategically and creatively-led agency whose ideas are born digital but often extend beyond the digital canvas. We serve high-profile clients in many sectors of business.
Tonykoenderman.com said “One of the most spectacular performances of the year has been that of NATIVE” in 2014. This stellar year for the agency included finalists in international awards shows like the Cannes Festival, the New York Festival and SXSW and wins at The One Show, Loeries, Assegais, Pendorings and ICSC Solal Marketing Awards.
Because of Native’s digital roots, the people are a diverse mix of creative and tech lovers and everything in between. Native offices in both cities are warm and welcoming while being edgy and cool. The people work hard to create solutions that connect our clients more deeply with their customers. That work could happen around a boardroom table or around a pool table, we believe in having fun together too.
