Spotting and nurturing talent is at the heart of what we do and we are big believers in creating opportunities for young people to fulfil their career and personal aspirations.

We’re proud to say that 48% of our staff began their careers with us, joining WPR as graduates or account executives. In fact, our managing director, Jane Ainsworth, arrived fresh from university…proof that there are no limits.

Our Graduate Pathfinder series – five free webinars running during November 2021 – has been created to help anyone who thinks a future in communications, PR, social media or marketing might be for them.
