Closed: Closed: Virtual Work Experience – Cicero/AMO - Communications Agency


Available Between

Are you interested in a career in communications? Do you like politics, media, social media, digital design, or market research? Do you want to learn more about the career paths available?

Cicero/AMO is offering students an exciting opportunity to spend a week with a London based integrated communications agency to learn more about the variety of careers and opportunities available in the corporate communications sector.

We have a great opportunity for students to gain insights into a variety of departments and career pathways such as:

· Public Affairs (government relations and lobbying)

· Public Relations (media engagement)

· Digital Design, Social Media & Content Marketing

· Market Research & Thought Leadership

The 5-day experience will give you an opportunity to hear about what we do and have a go at some of the work yourself to get a flavour. There will be an interview panel opportunity at the end of the week whereby students can ask our employees questions about their jobs and career paths.

If you already have a budding interest in Politics, Public Relations, Research, Digital, Communications then great! If you have never heard of careers in these areas but you want to learn more – that’s great too!

We don’t expect you to know very much about what we do. It’s our job to teach you! What we are looking for in our students is high aspirations, enthusiasm to learn and stacks of curiosity to ask lots of questions.
