I have missed the deadline to register can I still take part?

Last year we had an overwhelming response to M&C Saatchi Open House with over 1500 participants registered, more than we are able to facilitate on Zoom. Anyone who has missed the deadline can contact us at openhouse@mcsaatchi.com to register their interest for future events. We may also look into making some of the content available after the programme for educational purposes.

I will be at work at 6pm on a Wednesday, can I still take part?

Yes, the sessions will be recorded and the content will be made available to all participants who have registered for M&C Saatchi Open House.

I am not eligible to work in the UK, can I still take part?

Yes, you can still take part in the 8-week training programme, but we may not be able to consider you for a potential role in our London office.

I am in a different time zone, can I still take part?

Yes, we understand the timings of the programme will not suit everyone around the globe so will make the course content available to participants that cannot zoom in live.

I am not based in the UK, can I still take part?

Yes, just select Other International or Europe in the drop-down menu for location.

Will there be homework?

Yes, we will issue tasks every two weeks throughout the programme that you can have a go at and share with us if you like.

I will not be able to participate in the whole programme, will I still be considered for a future role at M&C Saatchi?

Ideally, we would like participants to engage in the full 8-week programme, either live or by catching up with the content each week, to be considered for the final task and a future role with us.

I am not interested in a future role at M&C Saatchi but would still like to take part in the training for my own progression?

That’s fine, the course content is open to all just select the I would simply like to watch the webinars each week, either live or on catch up, and get a certificate at the end option.

Can I invite a friend along to one of the sessions?

Unfortunately, the programme content will only be available to those who have registered for M&C Saatchi Open House but by all means invite a friend to watch with you now that covid restrictions have lifted.

How do I link to the webinars?

A link will go out each week via mailchimp or you can login to the portal to link in live on the night or catch up with the content after.

What’s involved in the final pitch task?

At the end of the programme you can apply to take part in the final pitch task to be considered for a potential role with M&C Saatchi London by filling in a simple application.

Last year we invited 80 participants to attend a live client briefing. Participants were split into multi-skilled teams, each team looked after by two of our Open House Mentors and Talent Finders, and had one week to work together to answer the brief. Each team presented their ideas in a 20-minute pitch and the winning team and runners up were announced by the client at a celebratory gathering (all on zoom with participants taking part from across the UK and World).

What roles will be available at the end of the programme?

We’ll be looking for talent to fill roles across the M&C Saatchi Group in 2022 including work experience, internships, apprenticeships and more senior roles across Account Handling, Strategy, Data, Performance Media, Creative, Production, Design, PR, Tech Dev, New Business and Marketing.

Do I have to know what role I am interested in applying for?

No, you can select ‘don’t know’ or be completely specific in your application but hopefully the 8- week programme will give you an idea of where your interest and skillset lies.
