The Interactive Early Talent Programme has 4 streams to choose from which cater to a range of interests and talents to make the most of your interactive career. When applying tell us in the questionnaire which stream is your preferred area. You will be choosing from Production, Creative, Design and our Business & Strategy stream.
The production department is a diverse and future focused team, who approach production challenges from multiple perspectives. We believe diversity of thinking brings you better creative production while keeping immersive storytelling at the heart.
As an Early Talent Producer, you will learn how to deliver a high quality of production on every job. Working closely with a range of teams across our business, you will learn to ensure projects are delivered from start to finish, working with the best people internally and externally as you build relationships with our third-party partners.
Responsibilities in production include:
· Production of jobs across all mainstream mediums including Online, Radio & TV, talent booking, contract support
· Knowledge of our in-house Creative Studio capabilities
· The ability to work on your own initiative, prioritise tasks and to communicate any potential issues or constraints before they become critical.
Are you a conceptually thinking, creative problem solver with a fine eye for detail?
Our Early Talent designers need to be comfortable coming up with creative solutions to a broad range of conceptual, technical, and visual communication challenges. You will need a strong understanding of typography, branding, composition and be trained in executing a variety of design outputs, for example, print, social content, motion graphics/video and web design.
As a creative designer, we are looking for a skilled, motivated individual who has a thirst to learn and can hit the ground running. Someone who will contribute positively to the development of our design offering and culture. (If you select this stream please have your portfolio ready on request).
Design & Creative responsibilities include:
· Taking briefs
· Pitching creative concepts
· Collaborating with teams and seeing your work through to execution.
We’re looking for Creative thinkers who love to solve problems for our clients and brands. A passion for film, digital, social, tech, print, design, animation, music and madness are all essential for our Creatives. They need to be relentlessly curious people who get turned on by big ideas. (If you select this stream please have your portfolio ready on request).
We are looking for motivated people who can learn quickly, adapt quicker, and have a really thick skin. Our industry is about constant rejection, dusting yourself off, and going again, but better this time. Generally, Creatives come in two different varieties, those who are very strong visual thinkers (art direction) and those who smith words (copywriting). Then there are also the weird fuzzy ones with blurry edges who do a bit of both, and maybe other things as well. We want to meet them all. Regardless, the ability to work in a team is essential - we don’t do solo artists, we do bands.
Duties of a creative include:
· Come up with amazing, I-wish-I-had-thought-of-that, ideas
· Collaborate with your team
· Pitch Creative Ideas both internally and with clients
· Create work the World notices.
Business, Strategy and Client Development Stream:
At Rothco | Accenture Interactive, we work across numerous diverse and future focused teams, who approach client challenges from multiple perspectives because we believe diversity of thinking brings you better solutions, faster.

If you apply to this stream, you will have the opportunity to work across either our Interactive Consulting, Strategy or Client Account Management departments.
