Publicis Health are proud to announce that, for the fifth year running, we will be re-opening ‘The Lab: A place for bright sparks’ in 2018.

 We believe that everyone is unique, with their own personality and strengths, much like our UK agencies.  In 2018, The Lab will provide up to 5 individuals with the opportunity to work with us over 6 months, across a variety of projects and work streams.  During this time, we’ll help you to discover the power of health and wellness communications, develop your skills and show you how you can make a real difference to people’s lives. At the end of that 6 months, you could be in with a chance to be considered for a full time, permanent role.  There will be a lot to learn but this is a brilliant and exciting opportunity to fast-track your career. 

The best bit? The Lab application process doesn’t focus on formal academic qualifications.  We’re looking for people with raw talent, with the drive to prove themselves and make a difference.  Why? Because we believe that everyone deserves a chance to get into the creative and communications industry.  By joining us as part of The Lab, you can impact and change people’s lives through the work you’ll be doing.



This year, we’re looking for Bright Sparks to fill the following roles:

Account Executive / Junior Strategist

Account Executive
