Today we have underlined our commitment to a more diverse agency world, with the launch of Wunder Hunter, our entry level recruitment scheme. For the first time, our formal recruitment is targeting both university graduates and those without formal qualifications. This is to ensure we secures the best talent regardless of academic background. The scheme does not require a formal CV, instead applicants are shortlisted via an open ended questionnaire designed to test quality of thought.
Wunder Hunter will be open to anyone aged 18 and over, and is aimed at school leavers, people returning to work, career changers and those from creative and tech backgrounds, as well as those with a university degree.
The change reflects Wunderman’s commitment to identifying the best talent to solve client challenges amid a fast-evolving industry. To accompany the new scheme, we have launched a new website (wunderhunter.com), video and online and social media push aimed at widening the applicant pool.
The Wunder Hunter scheme will offer four successful applicants the opportunity to join Wunderman. The Wunder Hunters will work with a range of different clients and the scheme offers opportunities in a rich array of disciplines such as UX, Customer Experience Design, Communications, Strategy, Data, Account Management and beyond.
The application process also takes a very different approach to the traditional graduate scheme, with applicants answering a series of questions, which will then be scored for strategic and analytical thinking. There are no ‘correct’ answers, as Wunderman is looking for a problem solving attitude to challenges. This approach aims to identify the right type of person for Wunderman, someone the agency describes as both curious and brave.
Pip Hulbert, chief operating officer at Wunderman UK said: “Our Wunder Hunter programme has been designed to unearth the curious and the brave to join the Wunderman team. We want to find the best talent for Wunderman, regardless of their academic background. In return, we’ll provide a place at Wunderman for these people to exercise their gifts, discover who they are meant to become, and grow to become a true creative tour du force. This is all about unlocking potential.”
